School's out for summer!!

I won't lie - I am so ready for summer break.  This has been an overwhelming year full of book reports, projects, and other "Mom" assignments.  I know teachers use the diversity to help kids learn, but we've had way too many projects this year.  Momma is burned out on 4th grade!!

It's been a busy few weeks, but both kiddos have finished the school year off with a bang.

Veronica came home a few weeks ago with an invitation to attend a week long 4-H camp!!  She mulled it over and decided she wanted to go.  It's fully paid for by the school if you are invited, otherwise you foot the bill.  The camp is about 4 hours away by bus.  No electronics are allowed, so she will be out of touch all that time.  I'm a little nervous about letting my ten year old leave for a week.  I know it will be a great experience for her but I will miss her terribly.  I want to cry just thinking about it....

Valerie had her spring band concert last Tuesday evening.  They sound so good for being beginners.  Valerie got her two minutes of fame as the band director recognized her as the only one in her group to make District Honor Band.  Go Val!

Awards for Valerie was last Friday.  She had one B all year, in P.E. of all things.  P.E.!!  That knocked her out of the running for a Principal's List award and she got an A/B Honor Roll medal.

This week we also had dancing show offs.  Since this is an off year for recital, each class learns a few dances to show the parents at the last class.  It's really laid back and pretty much the same every year.  They show us the dances they learned and do a few steps across the floor.  And lots and lots of silliness in between!


Wednesday was Veronica's turn for awards at school.  She racked up with A/B honor roll, Advanced Math, French, and KidBiz awards.

AND today was the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!  Valerie was happily running off the bus for the first time ever.  Veronica was a little teary-eyed but didn't have a big melt down.  Now on to some summer fun because we all know it will fly by........
