The End of the the 2011-2012 School Year

It's been super busy here the last few weeks...as you could probably tell by the lack of posts!  LOL!  I still wanted to share with you what we've been up to as I get the chance.

One major thing that happened was both kids finished up their school year!  YAY!  No more strict schedule of going to bed at 7:30pm and making sure we're all up and out the door by 8:00am...at least not until September :-)  I'm not sure the kids really care either way at this age.  They really enjoyed school, but I'm loving not having to run somewhere each day! (Not that we've had many of those days so far, but I'm loving the ones I get!)

Blake's last day of preschool was the day after Memorial Day.  A strange day to end, but schools don't always make a lot of sense ;-)  I went to spend the last hour with him, but they spent most of the time at recess, so I enjoyed conversing with the teachers and another mom.  The following day they had a bowling/pizza party.  I spent most of the afternoon the day before baking 3 different treats to share with the kids and their parents at the party...Blake didn't get to have a birthday at school, so it was my way of making up for it :-)  My parents came to the party too and my Dad and Blake enjoyed bowling together...very cute!  Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so I don't have any pictures.

Morgan finished up with school on June 12th.  She had a couple end of the school year activities too.  Blake and I went to a part of her Field Day.  They did around 15 activities, so we didn't stay for all of it, but it was neat to see the little bit we did.  It's cute to see how the kids cheer for each other...Morgan had one little guy really cheering for her during one of her races!  LOL!

The Kindergarten also had a picnic the last day of school.  It was a beautiful day for a picnic!  Mid 70's and sunny!  My mom, Blake and I all went to picnic with Morgan on the playground.  After we were done eating Morgan took Blake to play with her friends.  She doesn't act like it at home, but she is really a proud big sister!  Her afternoon teacher asked if I'd be taking her home after the picnic, which I had assumed that she needed to finish up her day, so I told the teacher she could keep Morgan....but when Morgan saw other kids going home, she wanted to go home too, so it was a short day for her.  Again I forgot my camera to get pictures of her with her friends :-/

That was it for school this year!  We're still trying to keep up with their education through the summer, so they don't lose anything they've learned in school, but that is only going to be a tiny portion of our summer.  I'm looking more forward to the fun things I have planned from our Summer bucket list! :-)

I know the feeling the last two weeks of school here was pretty busy to.
Yay for a great year & have a wonderful summer.
