First and Last

I can't believe today is already the last day of school...I mean, is it just me, or didn't we just have Christmas break a few weeks ago?

Here's a picture of Alex, Jack and Maggie on their first day of school last August...

And this is a picture from this morning. What a difference one school year makes!

And today isn't just any other last day of school...

Maggie was accepted into the accelerated learning program for gifted students, so next year she'll be at a different school. We've already met her teachers and toured her new building (blog post to come). Several kids from her 3rd grade class will be there, so hopefully the change won't be quite so scary. She says she's looking forward to it.

And Jack...my little Mister Boo...he'll be a big 1st grader next year! Not that Kindergarten isn't real school...but, well...first grade is a lot more, uh...schoolish. You know what I mean.

Next year, Alex will be a 6th grader. My little mouse will be a big boy, a middle-schooler. Wow. He's seems excited about it...I guess I have mixed feelings. Don't these kids realize that if they keep getting older, then that means I have to keep getting older, too? Rotten brats.

Now, this is one kid I'd love to get into a classroom...

Keep your fingers crossed for all of us that the HeadStart program is still accepting students for next year. Jacob needs the structure of school just as badly as I need him out of my house for a few hours a week! *sigh*

All right! Bring on the summer vacation! Days at the pool, trips to the zoo, afternoons at the park, picnics in the back yard, golden tans and mosquito bites, BBQs and birthday parties...

Only a few more hours to go...
