End of the year

The end of the school year almost felt anti-climatic. The kids had pretty much finished up "work" and still had several weeks left over.

For my daughter, her time was consumed with a field trip, movies, parties, and lots of cleaning out of school junk.

I remember how difficult the beginning of the year was as she adjusted to her new schedule and began learning "hard" stuff. As 1st grade neared its end, I told her how proud I was of her. She had made the A honor roll the whole year, learned so much, and had a great year. She agreed that she had worked hard to become a 2nd grader!

Her last day of 1st grade!

I let her take a bunch of lei's leftover from a party to her classmates.

My son had 2 "graduations" to celebrate. I missed the one for his main school that he attended 2 days a week because it occurred the night I went to the hospital. :( The other one was for his preschool class 1 day a week at our church. The other end of year activities included lots of fun! I slipped in a mini-birthday party at his school since he would turn 5 the week after school ended.

He is looking forward to enjoying summer before he has to go to school everyday in the fall. Even though it is only half-day, I know it will be an adjustment.

Celebrating almost-5 years old!

Wild boys!

King of the tire!

Aww, what great pictures! The school year really flew by, huh? I know they'll be excited to be home with you and the baby all summer.
