Fifth Grade Graduation

We kicked off summer with 5th grade graduation. Times 2.

That's right. Next year I will have a high schooler, two middle schoolers,

and 2 elementary schoolers. Caleb and Libby will be leaving their elementary

school for the middle school down the road.

(Yikes! I may not be ready for this!)

This year it was a bigger deal because the principal who has been here longer than we have is taking a position at another school in our district. It was also a farewell for him.

Libby was one of the students chosen to read a poem for the principal at the ceremony.

We are going to miss our 5th grade teachers.

Luckily we have a few more coming up in the grades!

June? July? Where Did They Go?

Here it is the first full week of August.
How did we get here?
It was such a blur, but I remember a few highlights.
There were birthdays.
There were many days spent in the pool.
There was the kind of news that makes you stop and reevaluate.
A broken car.
A broken washing machine.
A river.
Visits to see people we love.
I owe you some posts.
I'll get to them.
