The first born finished his last day of 1st grade today. Hoorah! We're so excited for vacation and so proud of him and all the hard work he put into this school year.
I can really see in his sweet little face how he has grown up this year. And he's taller! Oh, how he grows and grows.
He has worked so hard. He really puts 100% into everything he does. His testing scores rose over 10 points which means in a very short amount of time (about a semester) he learned an entire grade's worth of material. Making him about a 3rd grade level in everything. Which kind of blows my mind! He has made Principal's honor roll every quarter. We're so so so so crazy proud of him and the effort he puts in and how much he loves his education. He's such a kind, compassionate, smart, amazing person. I love him to pieces.
Pizza and Chinese food tonight to celebrate summer vacation starting and all that our little man has accomplished! I can't wait for our summer adventures to start. Just as soon as it stops raining.
