Last Day of School

Today was the last day of school. YAY! Seriously, I wait for this ALL year! I can’t wait to NOT be on a schedule. I’m looking forward to lazy mornings, fun afternoons, late nights, beach trips, relaxing by the pool, hanging out with friends and the summer time food!! Oh, the summer time food will be great for this pregnant mama this year!

I think the girls were ready to be done too. Lucy seemed a little sad to leave her first grade teacher and a few of her friends but I promised her a fun, fun summer!! We said good bye to our favorite bus drivers yesterday and they both spoiled me with gifts for this sweet baby boy. We sent notes and gifts to them and the teachers, thanking them for a great year and wishing them an even greater summer. I love all of the end of the school activities we do every year, even though it keeps me running all over town.

Last day of 7th grade:

IMG_0998Where does the time go?? Chloe made high honors this last term. It’s something she’s been working at all year, missing it every other term by one B+. We are so proud of her but it makes us even happier to see how proud of herself she is!! Way to go Chloe!!

Last day of 1st grade:

IMG_1008It was a little early to be taking pictures with a flash. This was the biggest smile I could get out of her. Lucy also got a great report card!! She’s ready for second grade…… WHAT?!?!

After school we cleaned out ALL of the backpacks, lunch boxes, folder and computer desk:

IMG_1014I packed up some of my favorite artwork, awards, certificates and sweet notes from this year. I came across Lucy’s Adventure book she made this year (we had the Author’s Tea last week). She wrote about her summer in London. I love the cover of her standing in front of Big Ben:

IMG_1015I asked her if I could take a picture of each page to post here but she said no. Sigh…… I hope nothing happens to this book because it sure is a keeper.

We went through some of our old things and found Chloe’s from first grade too. It was all about Disney World:

IMG_1016I’m looking forward to having a few more adventures with these girls this summer. Maybe I’ll have Lucy do another book 🙂

Happy Summer!!!
