Didn’t I just post about the first day of school?…. and now it’s the last…

The kids had their last day of Preschool on the 18th and 19th of May.  This has been a crazy busy year.  I understand the ‘mom taxi’ term now more than ever.  Tucker attended everyday Pre-K and Sawyer went on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  They both had the same hours but with Preschool only being 2 hours long, it felt as if I did nothing but load, unload, load, unload kids all day.  But I’m not complaining.  I could not be happier with the education that my kids have received there.  They would come home everyday telling me something new and interesting.  I love listening to their excitement for learning.  I hope they always enjoy school the way they have at Kidslink.  Sawyer will go back for another year before Kindergarten but this was it for Tuck.  He developed such a love for Christian education and for his teachers and friends.  These teachers gave him something that I hope and pray stays with him for a lifetime.  His favorite part of the day was the bible story time.  He would come home teaching me about the parables of the bible.  I went to Sunday school my whole childhood and I don’t remember nearly the amount of details he knows. – And he’s so excited about it.  I really love that for him.  I don’t love that he won’t get this when he attends public school in the fall.  I hope and pray that we (Darrin and I) can continue his love of Christian education.  He’ll love his new school but I just don’t want this interest to leave that little mind of his.

The last day of school for each of the kids consisted of a day of games and ending in ice cream sundae parties…. so fun! 

I got to help with Sawyer’s party which was also a ‘Summer Birthday’ party.  Since Sawyer is a summer birthday, we decided to bring balloons for each kid to take home.  BEST idea ever!  The kids loved them and even the younger siblings got in on the fun…

We will miss you Mrs. McCalla and Mrs. Tucker.  You have given her an OUTSTANDING first school experience and I love you for that:-)

This sweet girl is Ryleigh.  I went to Kindergarten through 12th grade with her dad, Bob.  I love that Tuck and Ryleigh had their ‘first school’ experience together.  This is also the Ryleigh and reason for the tie that Tuck wore to school… if you remember that post:-)

I did so well throughout the entire party.  I never knew that at this moment I would be hiding behind my camera lens in mid ugly cry… again.  Mrs. Bolan is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.  She reminds me so much of my Aunt Candy (the most amazing 1st grade teacher you would ever meet) in her teaching style.  She’s soft spoken and can gain complete interest in her classroom.  These kids love her and she loves them.  God definitely put her in her perfect place in life.  She gave my son the most amazing experience and I am so grateful:-)
