The Last Week of School...Whew!

Whew!  We are so glad that school is out!  Friday was the last day, but the whole week was busy with last week activities, especially at Connor's school.  I was at his school several times this week.  But, let's start with Monday.  Monday was our only "normal" day.  Paxton and I went to speech and of course, he had a great time!

Tuesday was Field Day at Connor's school, but I did not get any pictures of it.  Wednesday was Mini-Society Day.  Throughout the past few weeks, each third grade class has had their own mini-society where the students apply for and get jobs within their classroom, pay rent for their homes (aka their desks), develop a product or service to sell, pay for materials, advertising and anything else that went along with selling their product or service and finally sell their product or service on Mini-Society Day.  Connor interviewed in front of his whole classroom for Banker and he was awarded the job.  He decided to sell Origami Yodas and a few other kids joined him in his business.  Paxton and I went to Mini-Society Day on Wednesday.  We had a little bit of "money" to spend from Connor having to pay me for supplies and advice!  And, Mrs. Marchman gave us a few more dollars so that we could shop.  Paxton loved going around and buying things!  And, he was a hit with the third graders.  One sweet little boy went and bought him a pet rock after we had already run out of money (fake money).  And, other kids just gave away their product to Paxton because he was cute!  It was so much fun to watch Connor sell his product and then go around and buy his friends' products.  It was a fun day!

Thursday was Connor's class party and I was able to bring him home early that day after the party.

And, Friday was the last day.  Last day pictures!

Kyle had Splash Day with his class.

After Splash Day, we headed to Connor's school to get him.  He only had a half day and we arrived a little early and got him out.  School's Out!!!!

And, we ended the last week of school with a little bit of backyard play.

We are so thankful that both boys had a great school year, but we are also so thankful that SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!

Next year, Connor will be a fourth grader (how is that possible!), Kyle will be a first grader (and will be at Connor's school), and Paxton will got to preschool two mornings a week!  I'm hoping that time slows down this summer!
