We did it!! Another school year in the books!! It has been such a crazy last couple of weeks, both at school and on the home front, that I haven't really processed the fact that the year is over. AND the fact that I now have a second and fifth grader! Yikes!!
Here's a snipit of the kids' last day....
This was taken earlier in the week, but I need to post this pic of Alyssa. This sweet girl was in kindergarten with Evelyn and stole my heart. She is bright, active and has a big heart. She hasn't been in class with Evelyn since that first year of school, but she and I have always made sure to stay connected one way or another. Her family is moving to Texas so this is her last year here. She wrote me the sweetest note thanking me for being there for her over the years. I was so touched. I will miss this girl very much!!
The kids were tired and not really excited to have their picture taken, but they mostly cooperated. HA!
Mrs. Viegas. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher for Matthew this year. He has grown so much in confidence and we could not be more proud of him. He has become an avid writer and has been a leader in the classroom. What an amazing year he has had, and a lot of the credit goes to Mrs. Viegas. We will all miss her!
Fourth grade Gold Presidential Academic Achievement Award winners! Chase, Minley, Shaye, Alyssa, Evelyn and Tenaya. I have watched these six grow up since kindergarten and am proud of all of them!
My baby girl keeps winning this award... we are so proud of her!
Mr. Peterson. Evelyn's teacher. He is one of the most kind, hilarious, smart amazing teachers we have ever known. He is so great with this age group. Evelyn and her classmates nicknamed his green jeep "The Green Buffalo" during the Oregon Trail simulation (all cars were considered buffalo), so we got him a license plate frame to remember his class.
After school we headed to Menchie's with a bunch of friends, our tradition the past 4 years. It was SO busy, the busiest it has ever been in all the times we have done this. But.. we all got yogurt and enjoyed our time together. All the mom's decided that we will find a less crazy place next year, tho! :)
Love this boy!
Evelyn and Ellie have worn this matching outfit on the last day of school for 3 years in a row. Silly girls!
Thankful for these 4th grade boys.. they are pretty awesome!
Yay for summer!
Matthew and his buddy Hayden.
Love these monkeys!!
They really do love each other, can you tell? HA! :)
Why yes, they did eat all that food for dinner. Growing much? :)
The kids wanted to celebrate the end of school by getting our pool floaties ready to go since the pool is going up this coming weekend. They were pretty excited!
Thankful for another great year at Fir Grove and even more thankful to have the kids home for a couple of months!
YAY for summer!!!
