The First Last Day

Yesterday was Andrew's first Last Day of School! It was a sunny, warm day and his class had a party to celebrate. I was a party mom, but had to miss the party because Coleman was sick that morning. He made a quick recovery, so I was able to run in and snap a few pictures during the party. Here's Andrew getting ready to head off for the day.

Andrew and Ms. Sharon. She has been the best teacher for him this year. So kind and patient and loving. We will miss her next year, but we know our teachers in 2010-2011 will be excellent too!

Here's Andrew's table enjoying their pizza, grapes, and lemonade lunch. After lunch they went outside and played with waterguns, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and had popsicles.

He brought home a bag full of end of the year artifacts. Here he is with his silhouette. Last night I told him to go get the silhouette so I could make his picture with it. He said, "What are you talking about? I'm not wet."

My favorite thing is the binder of his art projects and pictures from the year that Ms. Sharon put together for each child. He brought home lots of fun projects during the year, but she kept out the best samples and placed them in plastic sleeves in this scrapbook for us. I can't imagine how long she worked on these this year, but I am so thankful she did. Andrew was very proud getting to show us his work. Here are some pictures of him telling Brent about the different pages.

We are so thankful for the great start he's had in preschool. He loves going, and it was so great this year for him to get to do fun things while I was home with Jonathan and Coleman. I know it would have been very difficult to keep him challenged and learning every day all year long. Even though he only went to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, it will be nice for a break this summer. We have tons of fun things planned, and can't wait to get started!

Looks like he had a wonderful teacher! I can't get over that binder she made for him!

Ironic that they did his silhouette. I have not seen those in years and years, and just this week I made one of my kiddos. I'll be posting it on the blog soon. I hope to make one like mine for the grandparents.
