End of the school year

Hard to believe, but another school year is now over...

Despite a challenging year, both Bearhug and Cuddlebug managed to get through it with mostly A's a few B's. And an even more exciting development - each of them has developed a real friendship in recent weeks. More on that in another post :).

They have both been sooo excited for summer break to begin.

Little Bitty on the other hand, I don't think he really understood that the school year was coming to an end. He was happy for a break for a couple of days, but today he is asking about school. We've tried to explain when school will start again, but while he understands the concept of "tomorrow" versus "today," trying to explain "two and a half months from now" is a little tougher. I'll make him a countdown calendar as it gets closer.

So it's official now - we have two 4th graders and a kindergartner. It seems like just yesterday we had two preschoolers and a baby :).

The upcoming school year will be one of transitions for all of the boys. As a new kindergartner, Bitty will be going to a new (to him) school, joining his big brothers at elementary school. We have already met his new resource teacher and really like him. We won't know until August who his regular ed teacher will be, but as with our older boys, his resource teacher will have some say in choosing a teacher that will be a good fit for him.

Cuddlebug and Bearhug will be in the same class for the first time next year. They will also have a new resource teacher for the first time since kindergarten. Generally the resource teachers cover two grades but Ms. D ended up changing grades and moving up with them. We absolutely love her as she has made such a big difference for both of our boys, but we've heard great things about their new resource teacher so I know they'll be in good hands next year too.

I'm so glad they had a good year.

Bitty just gets cuter and cuter in every picture I see!

I've made some major school decisions and will blog it soon.

Summer is always great for my son in theory he loves that there is not school... but the lack of structure throws him into a loop every year. I am never sure who hates the transition more from grade to grade me or him LOL.
Hope all three of your boys have a great summer holiday and by the by have a good memorial day.

Oh how nice! I still can't believe they are going into the fourth grade!

No extended school year? Jaylen has 2 weeks off, I am scared about that, he loses his mind without the school routine, and then goes to summer school.
