Today is our last day of school. 180 days went by in a flash. We have a day of awards, cleaning the classroom and a retirement party. Tonight we plan to celebrate the beginning of summer break as a family by going out for fancy burgers and milkshakes.
I remember this picture being taken like it happened last week…
- Maddi played basketball this year from October-March. She had such a good season.
- She completely ROCKED her state testing this spring and loved taking the tests (she did not get this from me).
- Maddi found the “Little House…” series of books and is in love and wants to read them all this summer.
- She finally found a good group of friends this year and has settled in really great.
- She has her first year of 4-H under her belt and took a market steer to the fair.
- Maddi won an award for being the most organized (wonder where she got that from?!?!) and also having the best attitude about doing work.
- She is looking most forward to having a locker next year!
- She wants to be a life guard when she grows up and my aid when she is in middle school.
- Guy played football and baseball this year.
- He really wants a motorcycle to race.
- Guy grew so much in reading and writing this year.
- He does not like studying for his spelling tests.
- Guy now outweighs Maddi (which he is so proud of).
- His favorite memory from the school year was being bat boy at his cousin’s baseball game.
- His favorite part of school this year was playing kickball at recess.
- Guy had perfect attendance this year!
- I just wrapped up our third year of full day kindergarten and my fifth year of teaching at my school (8th year total teaching).
- I won the Seattle Mariner/ESPN Teacher of the Week award and got to watch the Mariners in a suite at Safeco.
- Today is the last day that Tara and I will be teaching together…she is seriously my right arm and I will miss her so much next year.
- I had the smallest class I have ever had this year with 17 students and it was magical.
- Our favorite read aloud book in Kindergarten was B.J. Novak’s “The Book with No Pictures”.
- Flossing is better than dabbing and fidget spinners.
We had a great school year and are ready to enjoy summer!
