almost 5th graders

Can't believe that the year is almost over! It feels like it just got started.
Yesterday, they had a swimming party at a classmates house to celebrate 4th grade. There was party food - pizza, cheese puffs, watermelon, and ice cream sandwiches. But mostly they played hard for 4 hours. And, amazingly, they got along. They were all smiling big, giggling, laughing, and playing with each other.
We were worried about the weather. Most of the week we had been discussing the need to reschedule or finding an inside option. The morning was cloudy but the chance of rain had gone down. Then we got to the pool and the sun came out and we had a glorious day. Sadly, {because of crazy scheduling, that nobody asked me about} they have to go back to school next week. I feel sorry for the teacher. I wouldn't want them for a whole week after they have already had their "end-of-year" party. But it was a great day to enjoy friends and get ready for summer!

You have such nice weather! We can't get the sun to shine.

The school year did go by so fast. It does feel like we have only been going to school for a few months.

Tomorrow is Luci's last day of 3rd grade and today she came home from school crying. She will be fine but I think it has finally hit her that next year she moves on to middle school!

These last couple weeks of school are crazy, but I think maybe the teachers feel the same way.

I can't believe the school year is over. Tomorrow is the last day and it is a half day. Bring on the summer fun!
