Bittersweet….

Today, May 16, 2013, is Noah’s last day of his first year of preschool. He has changed SO drastically since September that I really can hardly believe my eyes. Every morning, I think he is 3 inches taller than he was the night prior when I kissed him goodnight. How does that happen so fast? I told Noah I was going to put a brick on his head so he would stop growing and he got that “I’m thinking really hard” look on his face and said, “But mom, the brick would grow too!” He always has something to say, a reason behind what he does and what he says – a lot like his mommy. I am so proud of the little man he is becoming. Below is a picture of Noah from September 11, 2012 – his first day of preschool.

Below is a picture of Noah on his last day of preschool – today. At the end of every school year, I plan to ask him these same 20 questions and I REALLY look forward to seeing how the answers differ every year. He is a thinker, so I am sure the answers will be great every single time! I adore his answers this years because he is so honest and thorough in his thinking. I admire his little mid so incredibly much! I love you, Noah Thomas Rice!

Being home with him has continued to be a blessing and watching him grow has been priceless. There is no career, dream job, or pay scale that I would ever give this up for. ❤
