End of the School Year

Today is the last day of school! What a great year it's been. Do you mind if I share some pictures of my fabulous children? Here's Claire sometime in about first grade.

And here is Claire at the end of eighth grade. She has finished middle school and is ready to take high school by storm!

Here we are at her academic award ceremony. She received the Presidential Academic Achievement Award. We're so proud of her!

Here is Benjamin's kindergarten school picture.

And here is his fifth grade school picture. Elementary school is over and he is ready to begin the adventure of middle school.

I attended Benjamin's promotion ceremony this morning. He was chosen, out of all the fifth graders, to be one of the two student emcees of the event. It was super fun. He was also awarded the Presidential Academic Achievement Award. We're very proud. Sadly, Jeff was out of town for both these events.

Amazingly, Benjamin's face seems to be mostly clean in this picture. Surprising since he ate seven powered sugar donuts after the ceremony.

Yay Claire and Benjamin! I would be proud of both of them too. :-) They are growing up into wonderful people and I'm so glad we've gotten the chance to know them.

Hooray! How great it is when kids do their best! And what good timing for the move, they both had to start new schools anyway! :-)
