End of School

Just a couple of days ago, we finished up our official school year.  It's hard to believe that Caleb's successfully completed both kindergarten AND 1st grade and is now a 2nd grader.
I've included the beginning and end of school year photos:

 1st day of school for both kiddos

This was taken just a couple of weeks ago, but you get the picture.  They've both grown and are just getting too big, too fast, if you ask me.
This summer, we will continue with some math, to keep up skills, and I've picked up a Handwriting Without Tears workbooks for Caleb to work on.  Handwriting has never been a skill that came easily for Caleb, nor was it something that he ever enjoyed.  However, I'm trying to convince him that it is important to learn how to properly write, even if he does make a good case against it.  I also was able to gather a few workbooks with fun activities in them for those Texas summer days that are sure to come that are just too, too hot to be out!  Also, one-third of our playgroup that we see weekly leaves in mid July and doesn't return until mid August to head to Michigan in order to avoid at least some of the summer.  Who can blame them, but we have to plan for that time too, so I've got lots and lots of fun stuff planned for us!
