School's out for summer!

Today marks the end of our school year. Finally! With all the snow days we had, it felt like the end would never come!

Kevin wrapped up 3rd grade on a high note. I attended his class awards program on Tuesday. He received a long list of well deserved awards. We were most proud of his Citizenship Award. Only one boy and one girl in each class get this award. He won it last year, too!

We're really going to miss Ms. Ritter. She was also Blake's 3rd grade teacher. She worked really hard with Kevin to help him improve his test scores. Testing has never been one of his strengths. That's changing though!

I have one last photo to share with you.

This is Kevin with his teacher and two friends. The friends are twins, Ethan and Emily. Their mother is my dear friend Shelly. We shared the same maiden name although we weren't related. I've been friends with her for so long, I don't remember ever not knowing her! We were pregnant at the same time. Kevin was due on Halloween and her twins were due on Christmas. Although Kevin was four days late...Shelly's twins arrived six days before he did - nearly two months premature!

Every time I see these two, I have to'd never think they were once preemies! And, I'd like to add that Kevin isn't a short child. ;)

To celebrate the end of the school year we will go to the ballpark tonight for back to back baseball games. Go Braves and Tigers!
