Aubrey's last day of school

Aubrey had a wonderful 1st grade year! She learned so much that I think she is now smarter than her mom:) And I couldn't have asked for a better teacher for her. She also made lots of new friends and got along great with her classmates. It was a spectacular year! Here is a picture of her saying goodbye to her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Gahan. Mrs. Gahan always gave her the highest compliments and treated her with such love and kindness. She gave Aubrey the "Supreme Storywriter" award the last day of school which really made Aubrey feel good. All the kids received different awards, but to Aubrey, this award was the best. It was the one she wanted and I think she deserved it because she is definitely an amazing writer. Her teacher told me "she has writing in her blood." I concur. :)


Here is a picture of Aubrey and one of her school & church buddies, Addyson. Her mom and I carpooled this year. When I drove them home from school on Thursday, I blasted HSM2's "What time is it?" and "All for One" songs(summer tunes) and rolled the windows down. The kids were jammin! And Cali couldn't stop laughing. She loved the wind in her little face:)
Aubrey came home very happy-she said it was the best school day ever. They ate pizza, drank capri suns, and ate icecream. They were able to watch the movie, Madagascar, and play all day. When Aubrey was telling me about her day, it reminded me of those good ole school days. The last week of school was always da bomb. No learning=great fun.

It made me smile to think of you guys jammin' out in the car. And it took me back to the days when I was in school, as well. Those last few days were always awesome! :)

Ah, the good ol' days. I recall it seeming so surreal to goof off at school that last week.

I am not a big fan of the last day of school.

I lean more toward the FIRST day of school ;)
