Goodbye Kindergarten, Hello First Grade!

Friday marked the end of kindergarten for my Evan. He had a WONDERFUL year with some great teachers. He discovered he loves math and his reading is really taking off. Evan has always loved books, but now that he can read some of the words by himself, it's a whole new world! :)

I cannot believe my baby is officially a first grader and will be in school full day come September...where does the time go?

Today we're celebrating the fact that we don't have to trek all our butts up to the bus stop two times a day :) Although I will miss the excitement of waiting for the bus and Evan giving everyone hugs and kisses before he boarded. SO cute!

For know, we're going to savor the summer time we have together :)

Here's a shot of the teachers' gifts I made ~ the "flowers" in the pot are actually pens.

You are so great and your teacher gifts are sweet! Makes me want to be Evan's teacher...I love the one of him hugging Ryan? so husband only has one brother and they are so close...I love that I'm having a girl, but I definitely want JJ to have a brother...we'll see:)
