Ben's Kindergarten Graduation

I started this blog almost seven years ago and one of the reasons was to have a place to record Ben's milestones such as Kindergarten graduation.

It's hard to believe Weena and I have a First grader now. Seems like yesterday Ben was born. He did very well in school this year and everyone is very proud of him.

We had a great celebration today so enjoy the pictures.

Father Jim addresses the children. It was his last Children's Mass as he will be assigned to another church at the end of June. Ben and Father Jim have bonded over the years and we will definitely miss him.

"That we always remember to thank God for all our gifts…We pray to the Lord."

"We may love and be kind to our family and friends...We pray to the Lord."
