There he is. All big and grown up. And I can hardly believe my eyes.

Even now as I type this tears are making their way to my lap. A hot mess through my makeup.

My 15 oz. 22 weeker is in kindergarten. 

Three days down and so many more to go. It feels unnatural to not know what he's doing for six hours. You all know, right? It's so hard to let go. 

We sit at the table together after school. Sipping hot cocoa with marshmallows floating in ninety degree Nevada.

He said that today he didn't play on the jungle gym because he has cerebral palsy and he couldn't do it. So he pretended he was a spy under the jungle gym. And it was really fun.

He also told me there is a boy in his class that doesn't know how to talk very well, and it was a little bit sad.  And then he said that he was going to be kind to him and be his friend. 

Under the jungle gym is a pretty great place to be.


  1. what a sweet boy and special blessing he is!!!

    hope the whole year goes fantastically!!


  2. I love it when you post updates! I miss seeing and hearing about your blessed family. Look at how far he has come! Praise god!

  3. I've been following your story since your first six little angels were born. What a blessing it is to see Sylas doing so well and to see what a beautiful little person he is :)

  4. He is so precious and grown up Brianna! Our Layla is being homeschooled this year, but the feeling is somewhat the same. Its hard to believe how quickly they grow up, but its amazing to see what God is making of their lives at the same time.

  5. This boy makes his auntie SO proud!! It's hard to believe he's already this big and in school. We are, as always, praying for you guys. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
