I went to field Day with Rose. It was fun to see her in her element having a good time with school friends.
Rose and Cammi. They met at Discovery park the week before Kindergarten started and they hit it off. Then they ended up in the same class! Now they are friends. Play dates and all!
Rose and Gentry and Gabriella and …
It was fun to see Rose in action. She didn’t need me at all and she had lots of little friends to go between.
at the end of the day I brought her and Gentry home and took a last day picture!
Rose is done with Kindergarten! She had a great year. She went every day without a fight. She was in the same class as Ellie and next door to Gentry, and She loved all of the new friends. Mrs. Crockett did not disappoint! She is SOO good and we are going to miss her SOo much now that she’s not teaching here next year.
Rose! and Ellie! and Gentry!
and then we went out to get Milk Shakes with Grammee!!
The kids made their Bare Books and then showed us all of their writing portfolios!
Rose got to go to school from 9:15-1:15 and visit all of the 1st grade classrooms and teachers. She loved it! Benji got to be her and Ellie’s 6th grade buddy! He loved it. Rose loved walking home with all the neighborhood kids.
This year they didn’t get split into their new classes and see who their new teacher might be so… we all just have to wait to find out. We are getting a new Principal and Vice Principal this next year so…
Ray is getting excited to go to Kindergarten!
Rose had her first field trip and school bus ride! They went to the children’s museum at Thanksgiving Point and she got to be with Ellie and Cammy and Jamie.
Ray has always been a home body. He is content with the siblings and enjoys time with each of them. This month he branched out a little and played with Allie across the street and then went and knocked on the door at Noah’s house! It took all of his nerve but he did it and he had a lot of fun. There are 4 or 5 kids his age in the neighborhood so he could have lots of fun if he decides he wants to…
The kindergarten teacher sent home some little books and asked the kids to use them to write and illustrate their own books. Rose was so excited for this project:
the next day she co-wrote one with her cousin:
Rose lost her first tooth on December 20th, 2016 5:30 P.M. Kindergarten year.
and her 2nd tooth came out 2 weeks later on January 3rd, 2017!
I love this soccer family. Soccer dominates our spring and fall but we all enjoy it. We had practices Monday through Wednesdays and then games all day Saturday, literally 8am-5pm. Benji played on an older team this year with 12 and 13 year olds and still with a lot of his old team. Packer still loves playing on the same team as Luca. Cali got to play with goalies and with Mia, Anna, and Claira with Uncle Matt helping coach. Rose got to play with Ellie and Gentry this year. And Ray ended up being with our neighbors Noah and Ivy. They will stay with these same teams in the Spring. Ben loves coaching these kids and these kids love Ben as a coach!
