Well I am finally wrapping up Katie's Kindergarten year! It was absolutely amazing - she was so lucky to have such a great teacher and to meet some great new friends! In fact, this first week of first grade...each day when I ask who she has played with on the playground, it seems it is all friends that were in her class last year!
I had big plans for the last day of school - I was going to make it like a fun "welcome to summer" event when they got home. Mother Nature was not cooperative - it was actually very chilly! So no bathing suits and no sprinklers (maybe at the end of this school year I can aim for that).
Here she is on the last day of school. She rode the bus and it was a half day - full of nothing important I am sure :)
And one last Kindergarten year Mommy-Katie selfie! (I also like looking at this and realizing that my face is skinnier now than it was then - progress, people!)
And for goodness sakes - look how much this girl changed during her Kindergarten year! It is just unacceptable!
And a comparison picture with holding the signs!
And one more for good measure :) Who doesn't love a good comparison picture! One thing is for sure - her hair definitely grew! We actually ended up going a year without a haircut - she got one right before the start of first grade...it was definitely time!
And here she is! My big first grader! And she was freezing :)
She got to go with friends for ice cream to celebrate the end of school! Please notice that she was wearing a FLEECE! Towards the end of MAY! Nuts, I tell you!
Silly kiddos. I'd say they were excited!
More catching up to come, but I think I may also start doing some recent happenings too - like the start of school! Maybe now I will have some time to sit down and get some posts done and get all caught up. What's the over under on when I actually manage to catch up? I am aiming to be caught up before .... Halloween. HA! Maybe the end of September is even reasonable. Only time will tell!
