A List Maker's Life: Personality Plus

Personality Plus

In my efforts to keep my little boys little for as long as possible I had no intentions of sending Gibson to three school.  When his "best girl" (well, her momma) decide to try GymStarz preschool one day a week it sounded like an option I might be able to consider.  The schedule became a life saver as it coordinated nicely with one of Gabe's weekly appointments and the sitter schedule when I started working in December.  The experience was an obvious fit for Gibson to learn through movement, express himself with silly songs, experience God's love through a teacher full of grace for all kids and their unique personalities, and to work on his zoo phonics friends a bit too. Last night was his Gymstarz graduation and a perfect time for us to appreciate how Gibson has grown since his first day of school.

Not an ounce of stage fright for the Gibster as he marched down the aisle in his makeshift graduation hat and stepped up on the podium to receive his diploma (seriously? three school!? The big kids are really having a hard time wrapping their heads around all the fanfare to celebrate Gibson's 3 hours of school a week ;))

 {"Teacher, her name is not KorrIah, it's KorrAyah"}

In the graduation program Gibson's bio said he wants to be a police driver when he grows up because he likes cars and super heroes. "I'd also like to thank my parents for taking me to Disney" He believes in the power of suggestion.  This year we recognized Gibson also believes in fearlessly sticking up for the people he loves, following the rules when they really matter, figuring out where the rules are better off bent, and finding all the fun in life!

It isn't hard to imagine a picture similar to this one 14 years from now. For now though we will just look forward to the smiles and stories these two will share as they head off together on some new adventures in four school.

  1. So cute! That is one adorable grad!

  2. Flashback to 1981. Maybe not personality, but all the same adorable looks. Mini-Kev, in the flesh.
