The last day of school 2013

Another school year is over.
I never in my dreams imagined how emotional and attached to each teacher and grade and age that I would be.
I just want to keep hanging on because it all goes too fast.

Now, when I look at their toddler pictures I just can't believe they are the same kid!
They change SO MUCH from how they were at 2, 3, & 4 to what they are at 5, 6, & 7.  
I'm sure I will be saying the same thing for 8, 9, & 10 and up.

During this school year, Tim has changed jobs, we have moved into a new house, both kids are reading amazingly, and have both learned and accomplished so very much.

I wish I could accurately portray how much my C Girlie has matured this year.
I can tell you, she is going to do some great things.
And she is SO FUNNY!
She loves making her teacher and friends laugh.
Everything academically has improved by leaps and bounds since the beginning of the year.

She never missed one spelling word, her handwriting is so neat now, and she is loving reading chapter books even at home now!

At the talent show this week, the 1st graders performed a couple of songs.  C was sitting on the front of the stage with some of her friends and she was not nervous about being in front of the entire school and she just sang her heart out!
I am so, so proud of her!
 B Boy had a wonderful kindergarten year.
He is a little smartypants.
He is already not too far behind C in his reading level.
Everything has just come so easy for him this year.
I hope it always stays that way.

He is a great friend too.
He had 7 BFF's this year in his class.
He even numbered them, like BFF1, BFF2, etc!

He loves teeball and playing basketball.
He loves to write pages out of books onto notebook paper.
He loves to write his own stories and illustrate.

He is sad about leaving his friends, but I know he will make lots of new ones!

He has grown up a lot this year too!
And gotten so tall!
 Please don't think I'm bragging on my kids (well, maybe I am a little, but don't we all?).
I'm a proud momma trying to preserve memories of them.

Just to balance everything out, I give you this-
That's how taking a picture of her really went this morning!
And yes, I'm one of those moms that takes pictures of their kids crying or mad!

C Girl really doesn't look a whole lot different to me, but B Boy does!  
He grew so much this year!
This week has been busy with all the usual end of school things- awards assemblies, Spirit Night, talent show, field day, tee ball game, and a tornado threat for good measure.

I sure am going to miss having a kindergartner and 1st grader.


  1. Wow, school is already over?! My kids have until the 31st. I can see a difference in both of them from the pictures, they look so grown!

    1. I want them to stop looking so grown! Lol. Y'all are out now! Woohoo!


I always love hearing from you!
