Last Friday was one for the books! These two woke up with pure excitement in their hearts.
|Somehow another school year has zoomed by. They are done with 1st and 4th grade.|
|They read their congratulatory cards and opened their gifts - new pool floats--and were off to school for the last time.|
|A few hours later, Miss Cameron and I were walking into school. We went to the first grade to see Lila and Cami immediately saddled up in her lap.|
|These girls have had such a fantastic year. All three tested into the gifted program! Only 6 total students from their grade are in PACE for next year, so this was a really big accomplishment. Sporty and smart--these girls have it all!|
|Lila's class signed each other's bags. Class of 2028! Sounds like it's in the great beyond, but I'm sure it'll get here much faster than I'd like it to.|
|We gave Ms. Garner a class picture and she loved it. Such a sweet lady.|
|Jackson and his posse. Such goofballs.|
|Meanwhile, in 4th grade, these boys were having a ball.|
Jackson came down to see Ms. Garner after his party was over.
|She still has a special place in his heart. He was such a little boy when he was in her class. |
Now he's taller than she is!
|In less than an hour, we were at Calley's house. Hello Summer!|
|Happiness all around!|
|Such a fun group of girls were there to celebrate the last day of school.|
|The girls swam...|
|played in the super-cool playhouse...|
|flattered their moms with a few cute pictures...|
|and swam some more!|
|Little sister enjoyed the pool, but she also really liked the spring-free trampoline.|
|"Look at me, mom!"|
|An hour into the party, the rain made an appearance. No lightning, though, so the party carried on!|
|After the girls' party was over, we headed over to the 4th grade party. |
They had a big crew at the Bartons' house, yet again.
|These kids are crazy! I have no idea how they didn't break this trampoline.|
|How in the world are they old enough to be going into 5th grade?!|
|By the time we got there, they were warming up in the hot tub, but then got out for much more swimming, running, four-square and shenanigans.|
Hooray for Summer! We are your biggest fans.
