The official start of our summer

Wesley and his best friend, Cody

Andrew and his best friend Sean

Andrew with his amazing teacher, Mrs. Wolfe

Brooke and her much loved teacher, Ms. Darby, and best friend Becky

It seems (to me) like they were just getting started in school, but the end of 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade is here. Wesley's teacher assured me that he was good and ready to get into junior high next year. I assured her that I was more nervous about myself getting ready for having a junior high student than I was concerned about him being unprepared.

The kids had 1/2 day of school, so we took off from there and spent the rest of the day at Six Flags Magic Mountain and water park (Hurricane Harbor). We listened to the end of the Laker Game on the radio on the way home. What a fun day!

Wow, long school year! When do they head back to school? We were out May 21st and it seems like the summer is half over already. But I have been busy, busy! Have a great summer!

They do get out late in comparison to the Mid-west and Southern students. They just have two months for summer. It is due to two weeks off for fall break; 1 1/2 weeks off for Thanksgiving; 4 weeks off at Christmas; and 2 weeks off for spring break. It is more spread out. I like it :)

What a great way to spend the end of a school year!!

Plus it's wonderful that they each have a best friend. I remember my best friends growing up.

Have a great summer. It won't to to long and you'll see your mom and dad before they head for China!
