Summer is officially here

That's right. Summer has officially started for our family. K's last day of school was last week and today was B's promotion ceremony from kindergarten. It seems as though the school year just started yesterday. It has been a great school year and he truly did have a great teacher who decided to retire after twenty-five years of serving the community.

B has learned so much this year some from his teacher and from friends.

Things he learned from the teacher:

Reading - mostly c-v-c (consonant-vowel-consonant) words, but there are others as well. Yesterday for example, when he sounded out the word organic during breakfast. Though when I told him to sound it out in front of Hubby it sounded something more like ogre-ganic.

Math - I would like to take full credit for his mad math skills, his teacher was able to teach B subtraction without having me scream and yell in frustration from explaining it to him for the umpteenth time.

Things his friends may have taught him:

Vocabulary - some of the things he now says, "Mom, you're my peeps." "Don't hate the player, hate the game." "OhNoYouDin't!"

Though my favorite thing he has been saying lately is, "MOM, how do you do it? This dinner is fantastic, you are the best cook ever!" I will attribute this last statement to his immature taste buds, but I will take the compliment.

The graduation promotion ceremony was great and we really lucked out as he was in the front row and were able to see him throughout the entire ceremony. Unfortunately during the ceremony he kept playing binoculars with the audience, shaking his leg, and as you can see in this pic, yawning.

I guess he was a little bored.

Now that summer is officially here, the countdown begins to the first day of school. Just kidding, though it is 55 days.
