The End of Kindergarten

 Our last day of Kindergarten got here much faster than I thought possible.  We finished school at Archer Academy on Friday, May 11.  It was a fun morning finishing up our last few things for the year.  Here's a picture of Andrew from the first day of Kindergarten.

 And here he is on the last day of Kindergarten.  Grow much this year?

 On August 1st, we made a time capsule.  Andrew had been looking forward to opening it for weeks!  Here he is peeking inside.  We found a tracing of his hand, an interview about his favorites, and a sample of his handwriting.  On the table you can see his homemade cherry Coke that was a special treat at snacktime.

One of our novels this year to read aloud was The Wizard of Oz.  I had never read the book, and he had never seen the movie.  So after we finished reading, we let the boys watch the movie.  They all three loved it, and Jonathan asked to watch it again for weeks after!  We made a Venn Diagram comparing the two versions of the story and found them to be very different!

Then we spread out all the books we've read and studied this year and made a picture.

That night we started our summer with a trip to Bruster's for ice cream!

We did more celebrating later in May with a big graduation day.  Stay tuned!
