The kids have officially been on summer break for one week!
It has gone fast and we are keeping busy.
More on that in future posts as I play catch up.
So last Friday was the last day of 2nd grade for Jordan.
They had a half day!
I decided I would bring Jordan lunch to school.
I brought his favorite chicken strips from DQ.
I decided I would just hang out until school was over.
His favorite thing to play at recess is wall ball.
After recess the kids line up before they head inside.
This is their last line up as 2nd graders!
I can't believe he is almost officially a 3rd grader.
We are free at last!
Jordan with his teacher Mrs. Van Slyke
He gave her a little bit of hard time at first.
Once she learned his traits, stubborn and shuts down
when faced with something he doesn't know how to do,
they got along fine. She even had a talk with him toward the
beginning of the year using beast mode as a reference on not giving up.
She also wrote an adorable book Mom School!
Super cute book.
The buses always ride around the circle and honk while
all the kids get to wave out the windows on the last day!
Once the after school crazy calmed down
I took Jordan and his buddy inside to get a couple pics with Bernie.
He was so upset that he missed out on this when he got his certificate.
School is over for summer dance party.
I just wanted a simple pic of them together but
they had to dance first apparently.
When we got home the boys played video games
while I filled up balloons. The neighbor girls came over
to help me thank goodness because I was just soaking myself.
Once we got the bucket almost filled they all had a water balloon fight.
This is the super cute ice cream truck that drives around
town (on certain days) in the summer! When anyone hears it music
the hunt is on to track it down. You can hear the music for miles it
seems so we can never quite tell where it is.
What an awesome treat for the last day of school!
We got pizza for dinner and then headed over to the neighbors
for an end of the school year s'mores get together!
The kids took over the ally with wagons, bikes, scooters, nerf guns, balls,
you name it while the adults got to talk.
That my friends was Jordan's last day as a 2nd grader!
