|This is our last day of all three on the same schedule as they will be in three different buildings from now on with different bus schedules.|

|For the first time in the school's history, an entire class passed all the levels in music class and were asked to perform a song called Joy in honor of a classmate they lost to cancer last year.|
By contrast, Kate and Ty each celebrated multiple free days, lots of playtime and creative assignments. Kate participated in her 4th grade celebration where her teacher reminded the entire class they were special and could do anything they set their mind to. She made sure each child got a warm hug and personal words of encouragement. To say we have adored her the last two years would be an understatement. Kate shares stories here and there about the ways this teacher goes above and beyond in her quest to help each and every student. She is a blessing and just as she told Kate, we too have a special place in our hearts for her. We politely asked the principal if we could take her to middle school with us but we were denied.

Kindergarten celebration was beyond adorable. Ty was pumped when he was presented with his lanyard and declared a first grader officially by the principal. He and his sweet friend, Ashlyn enjoyed chatting throughout the ceremony. As it turns out, her mother and I did as well.
Both Kate and Ty were acknowledged with awards on the last day of school. Ironically, they both received math awards. I text the oldest three demanding an explanation and Erin swiftly responded, "I can count to 32 and that is all that is required for my job." Touche.
