“Lucky rainbow” pancakes for breakfast:Lu had “water day.” 6th Grade BBQ: Yeah, I’m sure glad I know they worked their tails off this year to deserve non-stop parties the last day… Lu’s darling kindergarten teacher gave her a DVD slide show of pictures from the whole year. She has watched it approximately 45 times. Love it. Grace insisted on making some treats for her last-day-of-school party and to pass around to all the staff she loves so much who she will miss next year. She was a little sentimental on her last day of elementary school. So was I. Every year they have a big assembly to honor the outgoing 6th graders. And then they switch around all the grades to their new “positions” for the assemblies. The third-moving-to-fourth-graders get to move from sitting criss-cross-applesauce on the floor to the bleachers. Claire was a little excited about that. And these girls were excited to be the head honchos heading out to Jr. High. How did that happen so fast??? (We love their great teacher…who Max and Elle had as well back when they were “little.”) After the assembly, per tradition, the sixth graders parade around the whole school giving high-fives to everyone on their way off to Jr. High. It always makes me a little emotional. Here’s Lu saying goodbye. She’s off to first grade. My baby. My friend threw a huge swim bash for all the sixth graders. And then it was off into summer and 115 degrees. So there’s been a lot of the above going on since then!
