Second Grade, Here They Come!!!

Kendall's last day of school was Friday. The rest of the school district was done on Thursday, but her school has missed one extra day due to a water problem, so they had to make it up on Friday. Really, it was just one big party all day! You can see the pictures from the day here.

Barry took the afternoon off and met us at the school at noon. By that time, Kendall's class pizza party was in full swing. The kids were totally jazzed, there was pizza everywhere, and parents and siblings mingled in among the classmates. The kids were busy signing each other's yearbooks, taking pictures, and giving gifts to Ms. Kelley. It really was a lot of fun! There was even a surprise visit from Aunt Jessie! I thought Kendall was going to pee her pants when she saw her...the whole class was even excited!

We took a short break to play out on the playground and have popsicles before the Arnett Howard concert. It is a ritual with Kendall's class that everytime someone visits the classroom, they have to go down the spiral slide, so Barry, Noah, Jessie and I all did it. I'll tell ya what, those slides are tighter than they used to be...LOL!!!

Then we made our way into the gym for the concert. It was really good, as Arnett Howard is always a treat. The kids loved it, and it made it even more special that he went to that school when he was younger (and not so famous!). After the concert, there was even MORE eating! They had brownies, cupcakes, cookies, and sno-cones. Of course, being the mom who doesn't over-sugarize her kids, I brought strawberries and grapes. I guess no one will be begging to come for a playdate at my house!!! HA!

I can't believe the year is over already. She has grown so much, both physically and emotionally. Wow... I'm the mother of a second-grader!!!

I know how you feel! I'm the mother of a kindergartener! My first baby is going to kindergarten next year. WHERE DID THE TIME GO???

Sounds and looks like everyone had a great time! Love the whole spiral slide thing!

That is an awesome picture of Kendall with great memories. She looks completely free . Everytime it rains we get waves along the driveway. If it was safer, I'd invite Kendall over to ride the waves. Welcome to summer!
