The Last Day

We are officially on summer vacation!

Dylan and Lexie had their last day of school on Friday.  It's hard to believe that the school year already came to an end.  Their year in Kindergarten and 2nd Grade flew by!

The night before their last day,  they were super excited!

They were just as excited when they woke up that morning!

Before we knew it, it was time for them to go to their last day of Kindergarten and 2nd Grade!

After that quick photo session, the bus rounded the corner, and off to school they went!

A few hours later, I picked up my Kindergarten graduate!

What better way to celebrate the last day of school than a playdate with friends at McDonald's?

After our playdate, Dylan arrived home from school.

And just like that, I had a 1st Grader and a 3rd Grader!

Dylan and Lexie immediately commented about how they would really miss their teachers and friends, but I think they're very excited for summer!  I admit, I am, too!

We didn't really have a chance to relax at all!  Within an hour of getting home, Dylan had a baseball practice and game!  My great-niece came along to play with Lexie and my sister and 2 of my nephews came to watch the game.

We made sure to kick off summer after the game!  We all headed to Dairy Queen for a delicious treat.  With that, summer was in full swing!

It's amazing how much they have grown in 9 short months!

In 3 even shorter months, I'll be sending them off to school again.  This time, Lexie will be gone all day, too.  Watching them grow is bittersweet.  I'm going to treasure this summer with them!

Congratulations on a great year in school, Dylan and Lexie!  You both made us so proud!  Enjoy your summer!!!

  2. No doubt they have a lot of fun ahead of them!

  3. I always take a first day picture, but not a last day! I need to do that. Hey, what is the name of that braided necklace your son is wearing? I've seen them everywhere and would love to get my son one. Etsy?

  4. I love all the pictures! the ones of them together are adorable!!

  5. Yay! We are so glad for summer too. Although, I planned to have soooo much extra time on my hands and yours is the first blog I've read in at least a week! :(
