After the program the students went back to our classrooms to gather belongings. The parents were dismissed to the classrooms a few minutes later. I think that the sob fest that greeted my parents was a bit of a surprise. I'm sure that they were expecting to see a room full of peppy soon-to-be-firsties. But, we were all crying! Three of my little boys were crying inconsolably. I had kids clinging to me, kids sitting and quietly crying, and several wiping their eyes. Of course, the more they cried, the more I cried, and the more they cried... It was so difficult for us to say goodbye! I love summer vacation, but I love those kids! I am really going to miss seeing their sweet faces every day.
And with that, I have my Five for Friday...
Field trip. We decided to take a hike in the woods this week. Our trip to Taltree Arboretum was so much fun. We had perfect weather & the kids were so well behaved!
On the final day of the year high school students drive tractors to school! I love the big red tractor complete with planter!
End of the year teacher gifts.
The ingredients to make Peach Bellinis (no champagne)!
Blueberries! Once when talking about fruit I mentioned that my favorite fruit was blueberries. Harper remembered this fact, and gave me some!
Plants, popcorn, and a chocolate muffin!
Time for a little bragging ~ my four year old granddaughter, Isabella, recently drew this picture of Sally for The Nightmare Before Christmas. She wanted to write "Sally," so I told her to write the sounds you hear. I think she did pretty well!
This was such a busy week, I didn't have time for any more pictures. So ~ here is my #5: a picture from 2004 of my beautiful daughters.
Have a great summer!
