Pre-K Grad and Last Day of School

So Monday Cooper graduated from Pre-K. I almost made it not crying through the whole thing until his teacher started talking about how wonderful it is that the parents entrust their kids to their care and how much fun they had with them. (I was also so sore, sick, and tired, but like that ever matters to a mom) I think it got me a little because since I wasn't in Newkirk the first 2 weeks of Cooper's school I owe it all to his teachers for making him love school and taking such good care of him. So for those of you that don't know, or forgot Pre-K at Newkirk is all day every day, and Cooper loved loved loved every second of it. He did so well and can do so much now. He knows all his upper/lower case letters, all the letter sounds, his vowels, can write his name, can count to 100, and write his numbers 1-20. He can also write words if you tell him how to spell them. He finished all his sight words they send home throughout the year. He can read small books, and lots of other things. Yes I know I'm bragging, but he is such a smart kid, and we are so proud of him. We are so thankful for his teachers, even though it may be their fault I'm PTO president next year. So here are a few graduation pics, my parents and Uncle Dan even made the trip for it. They sang a few songs and told what each kid wanted to be when they grew up.

(I made the little push up cake pops with graduation hats for Cooper's class, they were so cute!)

Today was the last day of school a/k/a Maddie's birthday. (Maddie's party is in a few weeks, so trust me, she'll get her blog time then) So if you go to school in a small town you have a field day, which means you spend all day on the football field playing games, having races, jumping on blow up toys, and eating popcorn, cotton candy, and snowcones. Yes, it was the best last day of school I've ever been to. So the girls and I went up for a bit in the am, but didn't stay for long; since it's organized chaos little siblings aren't able to jump on the blow up toys, partially for safety from the bigger kids. But Maddie enjoyed Hula Hooping, playing the "sand box" or the long jump sand, and walking on "stilts" or buckets with strings attached to them. Luckily their mom spends way to much time on Pinterest so I had a "Welcome to Summer" party planned for when Cooper got home. It was a hit, we had kites, water balloons, water guns, and bubbles. They loved it!

So now we'll be hanging out for the summer while Dad does a lot of basketball camps in June and looking forward to our vacation in July.....with no injuries this time.
