Last Day of School!

Today was the last day of 1st Grade for Burke and Maggie. We didn’t miss the bus AT ALL this year! WOOT!! (There were definitely some close calls though…I’m sure the whole neighborhood has heard me yell, “Bus is at the top – RUUUUN!!” (Our bus stops at the top of our street, goes one street more and heads down that one and then cuts back to stop at the bottom of our street. We chose to use the bottom bus stop – less traffic.)


Logan Graduated! (Again – #2 of 3)

Logan’s preschool holds a graduation for each and every class – even if they’re coming back next year. (See last year’s.) It’s super cute and really cool if the kid isn’tcoming back the following year (which happens). Logan still has one more year though. πŸ™‚


When I am 100 Years Old…

Maggie’s teacher does these exercises during class and then puts all of the papers into a binder and sends the “book” home for parents and kids to read together. They request “fan mail” to be sent back with the book.

I’d heard about this book LONG before it reached my house. Every parent I came across mentioned it…thank goodness…so I was well prepared for Maggie’s entry:

Typical entries were “I will play with my toys” or “I will be working and making lots of money” … I’m kind of glad that Maggie isn’t typical. If you can’t read it, she wrote, “I will get married to Charlie”

My First Field Trip!

(As a mom-chaperone, anyway πŸ˜‰ )

I went with Maggie’s class to a local tavern-turned-museum. We got to ride the bus and everything! πŸ™‚

Maggie Playing a Colonial-Time Game

Spring Kindergarten Concerts

Burke and Maggie had their Spring Concerts yesterday. Holy super cute!! I’ll try to get my act together and post the video, but right now all I’ve got are photos πŸ™‚


(Yes, she was that happy through the whole thing…but she did know all the words!)


(He did look happier, but I wasn’t able to get a clear shot…and he knew all the words too.)

School Photo: Year 2010-2011

Logan brought home his school picture today!


And THIS Makes My Tuesday

Burke came home today very proud of himself. And with good reason!

Right now, their school is running a program where the kids get a paw print (the mascot is a wildcat) when they are caught doing something nice. (I think there might be a bit more to it than that, but you get the idea.)

Burke earned his first paw print today for being the most polite kid in Kindergarten!

When I asked who gave it to him, this was what he told me:

Mrs. Milk Lady told Mrs. Assistant Teacher who told Ms. Teacher that I am the most polite kid in Kindergarten!

Yeah Burke!! πŸ™‚
