Today was the last day of school for Aidan and Kayli. It was a big year for Aidan, making his First Holy Communion. He has learned a lot this year and is looking forward to third grade. Kayli has had an awesome year in 5th grade. She has maintained a 4.0 average the entire year. She also once again past the 500 point mark for Accelerated Reader program and gets her name on the plaque in the library. We are all happy that summer is finally here, especially me. This has been a hard year with 1/2 kindergarten, 8th grade and First Communion to deal with all in the same year. I’m hoping next year will be much less busy and I plan to fully enjoy this summer.
The twins had their Kindergarten Graduation tonight. It was such a nice ceremony. The kids did several songs and then were awarded their diplomas. It is hard to believe they are already out of kindergarten and will be going into 1st grade next year. Following so closely after Talia’s 8th grade graduation, it made it a bit bitter sweat. I was reminded of Talia’s kindergarten graduation and found it hard to believe it was 9 years ago. It really has gone by so fast and they really do grow up too quickly. These times have to be cherished because all too soon they will be gone.
Here’s Jared and Riley with their teacher Miss Hellbusch. She is such a wonderful kindergarten teacher. I doubt you could find a better one if you tried. They adore her and loved kindergarten.

Here’s all the apples we received at each of the kid’s kindergarten graduations. Just one more to go and all of our kids will have graduated from kindergarten!
The twins had their last day of kindergarten today. They have grown so much and learned to so much this year! They love school and are excited to be going into first grade in September.
Last night Falyn gave all her binkies to the Binky Fairie. She looked all over the house to make sure she had found all of them and we put them in a bag and put it in her bed. During the night the Binky Fairie exchanged her binkies for a present. She gave her a bucket and shovel, two trains and a barbie plate. She did very well going to sleep without the binkies and has only asked for them a few times. When she asks for them, we remind her that she gave them to the Binky Fairie and she is then fine with that. She is happy that her binkies are having a great in Binkyland with the Binky Fairie.
Here she is with all the binkies gathered up in a bag.
