The Last Day of School!

Hooray!!!!

No more studying!  No more projects!  No more tests, quizzes or qwests (don't even ask!)

I don't know who is happier - me or the kids!

Henry survived his first year of middle school and his first year of mid-terms and final exams.

Henry on the last day of school - his head is just past the mantel piece.

Georgia also had a fantastic year at school.  She took her first standardized tests, learned to write long essays, played on two soccer teams and a lacrosse team.

Georgia on the first day of school:  

August 2011 (her head is at the bottom of that oblong rock to the left of her head):


Georgia on the last day of school (her head is now 2/3rds of the way up that same oblong rock):


Josie mastered reading in the first grade.  She can now read almost anything you give her.  She also learned how to write essays and played a few sports after school.

Josie on the first day of school in August:


Her height is exactly in the middle of the second row of fireplace rocks.

Josie on the last day of school - coincidentally wearing the same dress as the first day of school!


She has now grown past that center rock and is heading towards the third row!

Happy Summer!
