Let's start with Miles. This kid has loved every minute of preschool. Last year he always talked about how Miss Karli was his best friend, but this year, he actually made friends in his class!! Although Miss Karli was still in the top five. :)
He pretty much had the best preschool teacher ever and I'm sure I'll be calling her next year crying and asking for advice. She's just one of those teachers that was able to see Miles for who he really was and was able to work with and motivate him in the most positive way possible.
I seriously almost cried at the parent teacher conference having to say goodbye to her and having the fear that he might not be as lucky in the teacher department next year.
We are also devastated to be done with Talking Time.
Miles' speech has come so far from when we started almost 2 years ago. Once again he had some of the best teachers ever and I will miss them. They never got frustrated with him and just worked and worked to find out the best way to motivate and get him to perform at his full potential.
He is so ready for kindergarten thanks to these 3 amazing teachers and is always talking about how he needs to read and do his homework this summer cause he's going to be a kindergartner. :)
I have tons of anxiety about how he will do next year in a public school setting, but I've already met with the principal to discuss his needs and I really feel like they are willing to work with us! But really, who couldn't love this kid?!?
I CANNOT believe Macey will be a third grader! I of course shed a few tears after dropping her off on the last day of second grade.
She has grown so much this year, made lots of new friends, kept her love for school and already misses it, one week into summer. Plus, the clothes she wore on the first day of school don't even fit her anymore. :(
I'm am over joyed to have her home with me for the whole summer though and I guess I'll just have to make sure we have lots of fun, so she won't miss her school friends too much.
I also have to document some of things I did for Teacher Appreciation Week. It was a crazy couple weeks getting ready, but I think it all turned out and I hope the teachers felt the love.
We celebrated school getting out by meeting some of our friends at our favorite park (meaning no swings) on the last day of school.
And then ended the day with our first neighborhood movie night.
it's a good thing I love summer so much, or I might still be crying over the fact that these kids won't stop growing.
