The next few days marks the end of an era in the berry family, or the beginning of a new one, depending on your emotional state at the time.
- This was the first and only year in our school career where all 3 of our boys went to the same school- all day. I'm gonna miss that.
- TJ graduates from 5th grade and enters middle school next year. My first child is now officially under my job description at church too. Now I'll really learn how much I don't really know about parenting a tween.
- Today was the last day of their elementary school's annual Dads and Donuts event for me with my 3 boys. Unless I sneak TJ in for next year... :)
- Which- side note: I've been praying. I know. Shocking isn't it. Anyway, Middle school starts an hour later than the elementary school. So next year, 1 day a week, after I drop off Tyler and Jake at school, I'll go have breakfast with TJ before his school starts. I already do this with Shannon on mondays, but I think my one-on-one times with TJ and "the brothers" will become a part of the fabric of my life in the coming years. I'm stoked about that.
