Kindergarten Graduation and End of Year Awards

My baby girl graduated Kindergarten today. She has had the most amazing year with the most amazing Kindergarten teachers in the whole wide world.  Molly has blossomed in their classroom.  Not sure who is sadder about the year coming to an end, me or Molly. 

Another wonderful part of kindergarten was making best friends. Molly loves this little girl and wishes she was her sister.

The Special teachers each chose an exemplary student, and Molly was chosen by the Music teacher.  We were very proud of her!

Yesterday, the boys had their award ceremonies.  Andrew earned three awards, Straight A's for the entire year, the highest GPA in Social Studies, and was chosen as the Media teacher's Exemplary Student Award.

Ryan also won two second grade awards.  He earned Straight A's for the entire year and was chosen by the Computer Teacher for an Exemplary Student Award.

I am proud of all my three kiddos for their hard work this year.  It has been a big transition for the boys (and us as parents), to move from Arts Based to a traditional public school.   But the boys have done really well in the new setting.

Molly's Dance Recital

Molly had her ballet recital today.  Her group danced to the song "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile" from Annie.  My dear friend, Leigh, came over this morning and plastered Molly's short little bobcut hair into a bun and did her make-up for me.  Have I mentioned before that I seriously live in the most amazing neighborhood with amazing friends?  Molly was a beautiful little ballerina.  I love watching her perform.

Let Me Run 5k

Andrew was part of an after school running club this spring.  They ended the season with a Saturday Community 5k.  Andrew is a pretty fast runner.  Aunt Emily came down and ran in it with him.  The race was held at 1 in the afternoon, so it was very hot, and hillier than expected.  But they both did great!
