He of course had his moments. You know where I had to drag him into his classroom kicking and screaming. But, then the kids would cheer and chant his name, Mrs. Lee would put her arm around him and tempt him with smelly stickers and getting to try a hard book, and I would turn and run out the door while he was distracted.
I do not know what we would of done without Mrs. Lee. She pushed him, motivated him, left him alone when he needed to be, saw his potential and most importantly, loved this kid deeply.
first day of kindergarten vs last day
She told me he is one of her all time favorites and will never forget him. I might of shed a tear. This kid has just been blessed with amazing teachers and we all pray it will continue into 1st grade. :)
Macey was also blessed with an awesome teacher, who told me she wished she had 20 Macey's in her class.
first day of 3rd grade vs last day
Macey had a pretty rough class this year and would get frustrated by their lack of listening and respect they showed her teacher. One night she asked me, "Why don't they want to learn? Don't they know how lucky they are to get to go to school?" :)
Despite her constant frustration with the loudness of her class, she had a great year and it was good for her to learn how to work and deal with kids that were hard for her.
And like always, she still cried on the last day of school, because she is just going to miss all her friends so much. :)
We did our normal end of school stuff.
And met our friends at the park, like we always do.
And I brought cookies and drinks from Sodalicious to celebrate!
We have a lot of kids!
It's crazy to think we've been through 4 school years together!!
We met dropping our kids off for the first day of kindergarten and they both tried to make me feel better about crying. :)
Can't believe we are done with another school year and how much these 2 have grown.
Glad I get the summer to hang out with them!
