Last Day of School

I can't believe our first ever year of public schooling is officially over. What a year it's been!

Both Isabelle and Alex loved every minute of school. They were blessed with wonderful, understanding teachers who made this year of transition an easy one.

They made some great friends. They learned. They grew by leaps and bounds. They were excited for the start of summer vacation but sad to see the year come to an end.

Olivia is already counting the days until she gets to start kindergarten. She's heard such wonderful things about school and kindergarten in particular.
Alex was mighty proud to receive his kindergarten graduation diploma today. He told me tonight that he feels older already. My frugal boy is definitely growing up!

We're all excited for the long and lazy summer days we have ahead of us though.

Oh, and is there any better way to spend your first day of summer vacation than moving into your new house? (Details and pictures to follow soon!)

Stop by Amy's Finer Things for more Finer Things Friday.

wow. amazing the differences between districts. my kids were done on 5/25. but they started early august.

so cool to see how excited they were- I think the emphasis at this age is not what they learned, but what they WANT to learn. Good luck!!

I sure miss your old way of posting about family life etc. The book reviews are just not that interesting.....IMHO....any chance you'll go back to the old format?

No one posts on your book reviews....they are boring....go back to posting the interesting stuff....pleeezzze

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
