School's Out for Summer!

Wednesday was our last day of school!! WOOHOO! We took the typical last day of school pictures before they headed off.

Fourth grade was tough this year. Her school tried a new advanced curriculum model for fourth graders and had a lot of kinks to work out. The first nine weeks were a big learning curve for everyone but after that Reese did great! I have to say we are both looking forward to fifth grade. Seriously though, that is crazy to say...FIFTH grade!!

Sam had a super sweet first grade. His teacher was such a sweet, loving teacher. She sent the sweetest email one day telling me how much she enjoyed having him in her class. He learned a lot this year and made a lot of friends. The funniest thing from this year was how often his classmates traded things on their Fun Friday. He has 30 Shopkins sitting in his toy box and I have not paid for a single one. They would trade all kinds of toys (he even traded one of Hayes's toys...that didn't go over well).

Movie' on up...5th grade and 2nd grade, here we come!

We weren't sure how the weather was going to hold up for our fun last day of school activities. Hayes and I got the water balloons and water guns ready just in case the sun was shining. Luckily, the sun came out about an hour before they got home from school and they had a blast. Unfortunately, I did not get one single picture of the fun!

Last year we went straight to Six Flags after school and then White Water the next day. This year it didn't work out for us to do that so we just went to Six Flags on Thursday. It was the perfect Six Flags day though. The weather was amazing and the crowds were low. We had so much fun there!

This was definitely the year of the dab. Goodness! Dabbing all the time!

I finally got to ride Dare Devil for the first time and it was SO much fun! It was the smoothest ride I have ridden at Six Flags!

Playing while the other kids ride some roller coasters. I don't know why Sam is such a stinker right now about rides. He has ridden the roller coasters he is tall enough for but he just doesn't ever want to ride them anymore.

And just a comparison from the first day of school and the last day. Sam picked out the same outfit for both days. He has fewer teeth and a whole lot more hair.

I can't put my finger on what it is that makes Reese look different but she definitely does. Maybe she just looks older.

YAY for summer!! We are ready!
