Last Day of School

Today was officially the last day of school. On Friday, the teachers finished up and had all their class parties, but today we picked up report cards and said goodbye to teachers and friends.

Jacob's in the middle school annex, so he wanted to go off on his own. (He has 4 middle school teachers, so he gave out handwritten thank you notes and multi-packs of gum to them.) Meanwhile, Connor and I went with Brooklyn to pick up her report card and give Mrs. R our thank you note and gift. Mrs. R loves flamingos and anything with a little bling, so Brooklyn's decorated letter R was a big hit - and something she can hang in her classroom every year too! Boy, we're sure going to miss her...

We walked out the school doors and Brooklyn immediately broke into tears. A girl after my own heart, she loves and feels fiercely. Every year is a great year and a year she just doesn't want to end. Yet, the sun was shining. There were no set plans or things to do. Just complete and total freedom as we pumped up the radio in the car and celebrated the start of summer.
