Camilla's Last Day of School

Today was Camilla's last day of Kindersteps (a half day kindergarten program our district has for kids turning 5 between Sept. and Dec.). She is sad for school to end, but is excited to go to All Day Kindergarten at our neighborhood school (in only 2 short months, she starts on July 28!). She had a great year and learned so much. She mastered all of the requirements for kindergarten and was referred to 1st grade, but we are going to do kindergarten to give her the biggest advantage we can in school.

On Friday, Miss Hansen planned a "Celebration" for both the morning and afternoon classes. They sang a few songs, she gave a few remarks, and then they passed out certificates to all of the students. They served cake and juice after and Miss Hansen had made up little books for the students to get autographs of their friends. It was a sweet program. Chris got it on video, but I'll have to have him help me upload a link to the site.

We are so thankful for the interaction Camilla has had this year with her teachers and other students. She will miss Miss Hansen and Mrs. H and all of her classmates (only one of them will go to Camilla's school next year). I think Camilla will also miss being up at the high school and getting to do some fun things there (Pep Rallies, Rocket launch with ROTC, etc.). It was a great year!

Camilla you are such a cutie and I love that you have matching dresses. I remember doing that with some friends but I think we were like in 8th grade. I guess you are never too old sometimes.

Congratulation's Camilla. You do look adorable. You gave Taygan a great idea for next year. She thought that matches dresses was the coolest idea since lip gloss. Kelly you look great. We rarely get to see you pregnant so keep the cute pics coming.
