Last Day of School !

Well, we made it!  We are all finally done with school!

The morning of the last day, I took Georgia and Josie's traditional Last Day of School photos.

Above is Georgia on the last day of seventh grade.

And below is Georgia on her first day:

The first day photo was shot with my old camera and was ridiculously over-exposed.  

And here is Josie on her last day of 5th grade:

And on her first day:

Some actual growth!  Impressive, Josie!

I am not posting Henry's Last Day / First Day photos and that is because he is refusing to be on this blog and I had to promise him I wouldn't post it, in order to get him to pose for a photo in the first place.  His last day of school was over two weeks ago.  

And so summer has now begun - I'm thrilled!

Josie Graduates From Elementary School

On Monday night, Josephine became the third Elliot child to graduate from elementary school.  She still has school until Friday, though.  Can we give a shout out for snow days?  

It is exactly this sort of situation that makes me angry when I get those 6am phone calls from the school superintendent telling me that school has been cancelled due to snow.  

It's my personal opinion that once you graduate, you don't have to go back to that school.  

The graduation ceremony was very sweet.

The fifth graders dressed up and they sung a couple of songs that were quite pretty and lyrically appropriate.

Diplomas were passed out, the principal gave an address and we watched a slideshow of photos taken throughout the year.  

Afterwards, we went to a reception in the gym and the kids signed each other's yearbooks and ate cake.

I ran around and tried to get photos of Josie with her friends but it wasn't easy.

Gordy and I declared this a "mandatory family activity" so Henry and Georgia had to attend.

Josie went to both of their 5th grade graduation, so I thought it only appropriate that they attend hers.

A friend even took a photo with me in it!  Unheard of!

Thank you, Angela!

congratulations, Josie!
