End of School Year 2016/2017

This past Friday, June 9th, 2017 marked the last day of school for my girls. Kathleen had her graduation from 5th grade and won a bunch of awards. We are so proud of her and all her hard work this year. Seems like just yesterday I was getting her ready for her first day in Kindergarten, time sure does fly by. Off to middle school and 6th grade this fall!

Hayley finished up the 10th grade and is currently doing the driver's part of her testing this week to get her learner's permit. Been saying lots of prayers, especially with all the other careless driver's on the road out there...I worry... I trust in her very much but as a new driver there is so much to learn.
Again for me the time just flies by so very fast... Kindergarten to 10th felt like I blinked and it was in fast forward....

                                                      Receiving a few of her awards. :-)

                           They had  a nice slide show for the parents to enjoy and reminisce.

 There were goodbyes until the fall.... but I know they will be hanging out this summer together too!

                           Mrs. Hall, her 5th grade homeroom and main subjects teacher. :-)

                               Some of her awards she received. She was so very excited!

                              Mrs. Miller, her math teacher whom she just loved as a teacher!

                           Silliness with snapchat filters from Hayley and her BFF Breanne!

We traveled up to Maryland to spend time with Caitlin and celebrate her high school graduation! These girls have grown up together and her mom and I have been best friends since we were 3 years old! So happy we were able to be a part of it all.

And while we were back in Maryland  we just had to get a snowball that I have missed so very much!! :-) Delicious and the marshmallow just completes it!

Teaching the kids how to drive is one of the hardest things a parent has to do. Good luck in this journey, Jill. It's so nice that your girls are out of school now. It's always fun to enjoy the summer months together when they are young. What a cute picture of the kitty cat best friends. That's so special that your daughter received many awards this year. It goes to show she's alert, a good student, and wants to learn.

Enjoy these summer days with your family, Jill.
