School's Out For The Summer

It was an exciting day for Dylan!

His last day of first grade was finally here!

On the first day of first grade, he still had a baby face.

Over the past 9 months, he has changed so much.  He lost a few more teeth, grew some adult teeth, got taller, and grew out his hair.  He lost his baby face. 

He learned how to read past his grade level, and excelled in school.  It was  a great year for him!

This morning, I sent my first grader off to school...

...and a second grader returned home.

My little man may be moving out of the primary center and into the elementary school, but he will always be my baby. My sweet, freckle-faced, big front-toothed, shaggy haired baby.

Congratulations on an amazing year in first grade, Dylan.  We are so proud of you!

  4. My kids have 3 more days. Doesn't it seem that the older they get the faster time goes? He is so cute, and seeing your kids navigate books and find their favorites is so much fun.
