Last day of school, hip hip hooray! I picked the boys up from school this morning, and was the atmosphere ever joyous. I don't know who was looking happier, the kids or the teachers ;-) Of course, I had to teach the guys "no more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks" on the walk home.
Lorraine and RJ, Liam & Mikey took off for Priest Lake camping, while Alex is enjoying a sleepover at my house tonight. We will head up to Priest tomorrow after he attends a birthday party.
To celebrate the last day, he and I ate lunch at the Milk Bottle, yum yum (and calories galore)! He ordered a grilled cheese sandwich, milk and cherry pie ala mode. Half the sammy got eaten and all of the pie and ice cream. He was super duper well mannered, even though the place was absolutely slammed and it took forever to get our order. He loved sitting at the counter on the revolving stools, and said "This is the best day of my life". It doesn't get any better than that!
The boys had a very successful school year, with reading levels improving tremendously, along with improvements in just about all other areas. RJ grew 1/2", Liam grew 2", and Alex shot up 2 1/2" this year! I don't even want to know how much their feet have grown!
Will report on our PL adventures Sunday night!
