Favorite Photo Friday - first and last day

{School's out!} 

Last day 2012 Jumping blog

"School's out forever
 School's out for Summer 
School's out with fever 
School's out completely." 

~ Alice Cooper 

First - Last day of school 2011 - 2012 diptych

(The top image was taken the first day of school and the lower one, this morning.
 They're growing up aren't they?
Miss Grace is growing her bangs out and looks like she's 12 here to me instead of nearly 10).

I can't believe how quickly this school year has flown by.
There have been challenges for our family and we've come through them, things are looking up
and that feels great.
When they arrive home today at 12:10 pm Grace will officially be a 4th grader and mr. Will a First grader.
I couldn't be more proud of these two!

Welcome Summer!

the long road

Wow have they grown over one school year. It's amazing! These pictures definitely show they are more than ready for the summer festivities to begin.

I agree with you, Grace does look way older with her bangs growing out. :-)

Looking forward to the summer. So many fun times ahead. Yay!!!
