Last Day in Uniform

Last Day in Uniform Last Day in Uniform
We're already to the close of another school year. In just a handful of days, Nathaniel will be graduating from Kindergarten (complete with cap and gown and copious tears from his mother) and Evelyn will be done with preschool. It seems odd to be at the end of this era in our lives- with the older two both being in full-time school next fall, and yet at the same time, I find myself not wanting to rush through things and to embrace the luxury that summer will bring with it's sunshine and relaxed schedules.

Though we have big plans for summer break, we are awfully excited about how things have gone this year at school. Evelyn went from not knowing her letters to being able to read and spell small words. And my big almost-first-grader is reading at a solid second grade level, which means that spelling words discretely between Jonathan and I is now a thing of the past, especially anything that involves i-c-e-c-r-e-a-m.

It's been amazing watching these two learn and grow, but we're all looking forward to having them home this summer, none more so than Mary. She adores having them around and loves playing with them, even if they don't always embrace her style of playing/destroying their Lego houses. Nevertheless, we're pushing our way through the last few days- one more day each and the finale field trip of the year to the Child Mecca otherwise known as Nickelodeon Universe- and once it's all done, we'll be kicking back in the sunshine and running through the sprinkler for the next three months!
