Pretty- and a new Winner

This past week was amazing!! Both my kids had a graduation ceremony. My son in Gr 5 is moving on to Middle School and they performed a beautiful "Moving up Ceremony". My daughter who is 5 just graduated from SK and is going to be a big girl next year in Gr 1. Both ceremonies where so beautiful and touching.


I don't do well with endings even if I know they are just beginnings to something wonderful and new. But I have to accept the fact that life moves on and my kiddies are Thank G-d growing up!!!!


In terms of my blog: Mid month for me is always slow in my blog in comparison with beginning and end of month. I decided to add a new post with a challenge so the timing between 2 posts isn't so big.


I've also started my own Facebook page so if you have time please press the LIKE button on my left sidebar and it will direct you straight to my page!!! I'd love for you to follow me there!!!!!!!

What a beautiful layout Keren! Love those luscious colors! Congrats to your kiddies on their graduations :) If you think those endings are hard, try one graduating from high school (12th grade here) and one from middle school (8th grade) and going into high school in the fall. And that means my baby is starting high school! I am not liking it much :( Congrats to Julie!
