"Mommy, one day soon, I'm gonna ask Jesus in my heart and get baptatized (Baptized). I was gonna do it yesterday but I forgot. But, when I get baptatized, I'll wear my earplug because I DO NOT want to get water in my ear. I'll tell Jesus that too!"

Last week, I dropped Micah off with our friends and then Jonah and I headed to the movie theater for one of the summer movies. I hope to do this with him each week because he loved it so much. I might even attempt to take Micah with us since there were other babies there. Jonah loved the movie and loved seeing friends from church there. We sat with them and he was more than happy to tell them every thing he knew about the movie right before it actually happened. There is a high probability that they won't want to sit with us again. :-)
After we left the theater, we had lunch then headed back to the Gmitro's house to get Micah. Jonah didn't know we also had plans to meet the new pig, Pumba. He was excited about seeing him and feeding him.
After feeding Pumba and asking tons of questions about him, we moved over to the blueberry bushes to pick some blueberries. Jonah loves blueberry pancakes so he was excited about picking fresh blueberries so we could make pancakes.
And, what does a little boy do after playing with a pig and picking blueberries? Well, swim, of course! He loves to swim and loves even more swimming in different pools. So, he and David had a LARGE time swimming together. Micah even got in the pool for a while. While we were ALL exhausted after the day, but it was a fun time with friends and my little guys!

I just saw Jonah in the hallway at VBS. This was our conversation.
Me: Hey Jonah!
Jonah: Call me John, not Jonah.
Me: John? Why John?
Jonah: I want a nickname and I want that name to be John. I think I told you that yesterday.
Me: Yeah, I remember. I thought you were kidding.
Jonah: John doesn't kid.

Three weeks ago, my first born child walked down an aisle to Pomp and Circumstance then graduated from his VPK program. Oh my goodness! I was NOT prepared to cry. But, I should have been. When he marched into that room wearing a green cap and gown, the tears started. He seemed so big and grown up. He seemed like a child. When did that happen? At least I have this little guy to baby for a little while longer.
Seriously, doesn't he look big? I wasn't prepared for that.
Ms. Nancy did a great job of talking about each graduate and telling special things about them. She loves our little boy and he just adores her.
The kids did a sweet little song as a surprise for the parents. It was to the tune of New York, New York but all about Kindergarten. Loved it!
Getting a good picture of him by himself was a little tough because he wanted to do super hero poses in each picture rather than just stand and smile. So, I finally gave in. Don't quite see this one going in a frame.

We headed to lunch for a little graduation party at Mainstreet Grill. Jonah was so happy to get a Star Wars card from Pap, Nana and Aunt Jen. When he opened it and money fell out, he gasped! :-)
It was such a special day for my little guy who loved preschool. He started the Toddler class at Jefferson Street in Natchez when he was just 14 months old. Now, at almost five, preschool is behind him and Kindergarten is on the horizon.
