Last Day of School (finally)

It's finally here...

The last day of school for 2011-2012!!

The girlies had outstanding years with phenomenal teachers who were amazingly perfect for them in every way possible. It really could not have been a better first and second grade year!

Mrs. Harrell with Teagan

Both girls were blessed to have her for 1st grade!

Ms. Rudd with Piper

This was Ms. Rudd's last year teaching. She said it was her best class in her 30+ year career!

First Day back in September 2010

Last Day- June 17, 2011

Piper was very upset this morning when I told her I would not be picking her up at school- that she would have to take the bus home. It's a crazy tradition in our neighborhood to "attack" the kids as they get off the bus on the last day. For the past two years I have picked up the girls from school because they were afraid of the water balloon, super-soaker and silly string onslaught. We have beat the bus home and seen the throngs of parents at the ready at several other stops and watched the attack unfold at our stop. This year Teagan was excited and I decided it was too much to try to go get Piper, she'd just have to make do and run the opposite direction when she came off the bus. To say she was not happy was an understatement! We drew a map of the intersection, where I anticipated the parents would be (our stop has 35+ kids- it's mayhem!) and showed her where to run when she got off the bus. Fingers crossed it all goes well. I'll be back with an update and pictures!!
