After the Fifth Graders Moved On, the PTA held a Wake - I mean an After Party - for the students and their families in the cafeteria. Both Georgia and Josie were eager to get the party started as they both remembered cake and cookies after Henry's Grade five Moving On three years ago.
And they like cake and cookies.
I am breaking my rule about posting photos of other people's children on my blog, but it seems strange to not include pictures of Georgia's friends and their goofy antics at the after-party.
Many of these girls have been friends since they were little children, some Georgia only became friends with this year, but the are all very dear and a big part of Georgia's life.
The wake was one big photo op.
Georgia met her friend Margaret at Holly's School when they were two years old. They bonded instantly and the friendship is still going strong.
Margaret is also the sister of Henry's friend Sam (although the girls met years before the boys did), who comes with us to Block Island each summer.
Georgia's friend, May, is one of those new friends I mentioned. This was the first year that Georgia and May were in the same class and for that, we are so grateful. May and Georgia are like two peas in a pod and she really made fifth grade fun.
And of course, you will all recognize Ally, Georgia's soccer buddy.
We stayed until (almost) the bitter end of the party. Having no activities to dash off to, is a real luxury.
Two down, one to go.
