The end of the year is always super busy, with a million different events for all the kids. We kicked it off with an email from L's school counselor telling me he was receiving a character award. Basically the school has six "characteristics" that they want the kids to strive for. (Accountably, caring, and trustworthiness are the three I remember off the top of my head!) Anyone, six different kids "win" from each class, each for one of the characteristics they exemplify. I had no idea which one L was getting and was a little confused when we reached the end of the ceremony and his name still hadn't been called. Then they announced the child who won from the entire grade for consistently showing all six characteristics and it was L! My mama heart nearly bust with pride, and we are just so proud of this kid!
Next we had L2 graduating from Kindergarten! It's hard to believe he's going to be in first grade next year, and we are so incredibly proud of the progress he has made this year. He has amazing teachers and we love his school.
And finally we had R's end of the year party for preschool. He also ended up with a great teacher, and we are excited to head into his final year of preschool next year!
And I'll end this with our first day of school vs. last day of school pictures! These boys are growing so fast!
