Maggie and Lily, first and (night before) last day of 3rd grade and Kindergarten...how'd that dress get so short?
Another school year has come to a close. It was our first year with no day care--not even after-school care. Mysteriously, I didn't end up with the big bucket of extra money I was expecting...
Maggie had another full year on the all-A honor roll, and was recognized for her writing and her prowess in gym class (that is all her Aunt Wendy's genes!) She also had art in the district art show again, and ran her first 5K with her school's Girls on the Run team. She became really close friends with another girl in her class and had a blast. She also became a Buffalo Bills fan like her dad...and her teacher. Oh well, maybe her 4th grade teacher will be a Packer fan...
Lily had a great year in Kindergarten, and wishes she could start first grade on Friday. She became a great reader, and her fear of missing out on something exciting has carried over to the written word. I may have to start writing in code!
The kids are gearing up for a big summer--time with grandparents here in South Carolina, Georgia, and Wisconsin, a trip to Edisto Beach with Grandma and Papa, and a family trip to Washington, DC are on the schedule. They're coming home a couple of times to get their laundry done--only three weeks total!
First and (night before) last day of 2nd grade and 4K (Lily was wearing Maggie's softball uniform for Sports Day at her daycare.)
I realized that I never posted the first and last day pictures from last year...largely because I seem to have misplaced the wee girl on the left and somehow picked up someone's big girl. Luckily, Changeling Maggie is just as delightful as the original!
And the two years before, again:
