wrappin' up another school year...

lots of things going on over here to finish out the school year so we can get our summer started...

marina danced her little heart out at her recital... her group danced to "it's a hard knock life"... annie was a favorite of mine when i was little so when i found out she was dancing to this song i was so excited... the girls did great... there were somersaults, cartwheels, splits... so fun... she can't wait to dance again next year...
maizie had her olympic day at school... and requested a shirt with her nickname on it...
 i dropped off this copy of oh the places you'll go to marina's teacher on monday... i'm sure many of you have seen this idea floating around on pinterest... i wish i would have known about it when maizie started school... for those of you who haven't heard about it... you buy a copy of the book and each year you have your child's teacher sign the book for them... and then when they graduate you give them their signed book as a keepsake... i'm tearing up just thinking about it... when i re-read what marina's sweet teacher wrote to her last year, i cried all over again... {i'm sentimental like that}
 maizie keeps telling marina how lucky she is because she's still little and gets to have a party on the last day... meanwhile, at the middle school... maizie will finish up a math final and clean out the rest of her locker...

 so... tomorrow is their last day... marina will say good-bye to first grade and maizie will bid farewell to fifth... another school year behind us...

they're SO ready to make their summer fun list... they were already throwing out some great ideas tonight...
 we're looking forward to spending lots of our days here... hopefully this ohio weather will cooperate...

what types of things are on your summer fun list? i'd love to hear!

have a happy day~

Love that nickname shirt - so cute! I hope the last day of school went well...I actually got teary this year at Ellia's "moving up" ceremony. Can't believe my baby is going into 2nd grade! Hope your summer is off to a great start!
