If I remember correctly, it was Caleb's first day of first grade. Tyler would have been heading into fourth grade, and Claire was finishing up školka (kindergarten) that year.
Somehow, a lot of time has passed and now we're at this point: Claire's last 'first day of school', her last semester of college!
Tyler and Caleb are finished with school. Well sort of! Tyler is busy writing his master's thesis and will graduate in December. But he's not on campus so doesn't have a 'first day of school' picture to send me!
So, Claire's picture represents the end of an era for our family. We and they DID IT!!
They each completed thirteen years of Czech school (more if you count školka!) and now they've almost all finished college and even graduate school.
How thankful I am for the ways they've grown and developed, for the richness of education that they've had, and for how they're living their lives today for the Lord.
That's the best part!
