Last Day of School

We had to do our annual end of the year school pics last Friday.  I can't believe a year has passed!

This was the first day of school. 
We were beginning 4K and First Grade. 

And here we are at the end of the year.  Brody decided he wanted to be a skateboarder at this time in his life.  Mason is still aspiring to be a Lego maker. 

They are excited.  

Since Brody's birthday is so late, he is getting to do a 5K program for kids in that "transitional" year before Kindergarten.  Mason will be a second grader.  Tear.

Walking to school for the last time as a first grader.

Some of the after school playground gang.

I know they are going to miss seeing some of their friends this summer, but we are hoping to meet up with a few already.

Almost Summer

Another week of baseball. 

Brody was happy to run on the field when it was over. 

Brody didn't want to take that preschool grad cape off. 

We ended our baseball season last week.  The boys played well in the tournament but came up short.  Mason got an out the inning he played shortstop, went 3 for 3, and got a home run.  I know I'm his Mom and all, but those hits were all really big hits.  It was hard for him to be excited because he was so sad the season was over. 

They have had a ton of fun together. 

Mom and I got to working on her fireplace.  

So much better!

Our neighbors and friends moved away last Friday.  Mason was pretty sad about it.  He made him a beyblade out of Legos and they said their goodbyes.  It was pretty sad.  

John and I went to BBQ Fest Friday night.  It was a low-key casual night, and we had a great time. 

Especially with these people there...

My cousin and his family came in town for BBQ Fest.  We had dinner at our house Saturday night and played some games. 

Brody told everyone what their card was.  He would say "I hope you don't say...."  
 It was hilarious. 

A little Hueys on the patio. 

It is the last week of school for both boys.  Brody will still go throughout the summer, but it is much more fun.  Mason has a million camps all summer long.

For the last week of Brody's school, they are having dress up days.  

Mom and Dad's kitchen is getting closer to done!

Mason had Field Day.  I was so thankful Mom was able to go since John and I weren't.  

Just being Spiderman...

There were no other pjs that the kid would wear.....and I realize it is May. 

Last week of school until SUMMER!!!

PreK Graduation Part 1

Brody had his preschool graduation from CCA on Monday.  He has such a late July birthday that we are actually not sending him on to Kindergarten next year.  But he had worked so hard with his class and was very excited about the ceremony.  

Big brother was proud of him too and begged us to let him go.....sooooo since he has not missed one day of school this year, we decided to let him go and get to school about two hours late.  

It was a superhero theme. 

The sweet little slideshow they put together. 

Brobro can get quite shy sometimes and will always put his tongue on the inside of his cheek. 

But he got happy pretty quick. 

This kid knew all the words and hand motions.  He was belting out the songs. 

Mrs. Jackie giving him his diploma.

And then he got super silly.

Sweet boy was so excited big brother was there.

Nothing like cupcakes at 10am.

He has done so well this year in 4k.  He can recognize numbers well, and getting better each day with the letters.  He can write his first and last name.  

I think that this extra year is going to help him grow so much and be even more prepared in Kindergarten.  We are so proud of you Brody and can't wait to see what the next year has in store for you!
