That's it! My kids finished the school year last Friday. Can you see the excitement?
My five year old loved her first year of public school. They held the "Pre-K stepping up" ceremony in the Park.
She made lot's of friends. She learned to raise her hand before she speaks. To tell the teacher if someone smacks her (and not to take matters into her own hands). She learned how to write all the letters in the alphabet and how to write all of her friends names, that purple is her favorite color and that mom is usually last at pick up. She also learned who Beyonce is, that if she pretends like she has to go potty she can see her sisters class room from the bathroom door, that the nurse gives out stickers and Starburst when you visit her and that her friends think she has "style". She also learned that school is a great place where she is safe and people care about her. She already misses her two wonderful teachers.
I'm a little freaked out by this but this is my 3rd Grader! 3rd grade sounds so old! She had a great year. She had had fun, made lots of friends and worked hard. She really loves reading and math seems to come naturally to her. She received an award at the end of the school year party for "most compassionate". That's my girl. I had to laugh when I saw the award. Compassionate is an understatement.
This is one of the four shirred sundresses I made last week. There are a lot of tutorials on the web if you want to give it a try. It's a very easy quick project (exactly what I need right now). Have a great Fourth Of July!
