Today was Griff's last day of kindergarten! He's very excited for the summer, happy to get to spend more time with me (and not miss out on adventures I have with his brothers), but also a little sad not to see his friends every day any more.
I went to his classroom with Reese and Xander in tow rather than wait outside to pick Griff up, and got a few snaps of him with his teachers (Ms. Falkes the classroom aide on the left, Ms. Callis on the right). Ms. Falkes is holding up a one: first grade, baby! Can you believe it?
We headed to Bev's with friends for celebratory ice cream. Reese, alas, was having a hard afternoon (following a checkup and vaccinations this morning), and his ice cream wasn't scooping as easily as he wanted, so I ended up not getting much more than a single shot of my friend Jocelyn's daughter Roxie. J grabbed the camera and got some pics of us, though. Here we are in our last day, grumpy-preschooler, celebratory-ex-kindergartener, tired mom, rambunctious toddler glory:
And Griff, holding up a finger in victory. Maybe in first grade the curriculum includes index finger use?
Summer vacation, here we come!
