School's Out!

Today was the last day of school for Brandon and Zach. I now have a 3rd grader and a 1st grader! Where does the time go?!?!?

We attended Kindergarten graduation where they sang a couple of cute songs. My favorite was to the tune of "New York, New York", but it went,

Start spreading the news
We're leaving today
I'm gonna be a part of it
First grade, First grade!

It was very cute! Zach also brought home a perfect report card, all 3's and +s. He's so excited to be a first grader!

The end of 2nd grade, of course, isn't quite as celebrated. But Brandon also had a great year and got the Principal's Jaguar Club award (behavior and citizenship) for the 3rd trimester.

Well, boys, like they say around Junction, "Great Job, Jaguars! Grr, Grr."

Spring Swimming Lessons

The boys had a 4-day session of swimming lessons this week to get them back into it after the winter...especially since we are spending next week in Daytona Beach, FL! They love hopping back in the pool. Brandon and Zach have been improving their strokes and Nate has been getting used to the water. They should have a blast next week at the resort!

Junction Luau

We all had a good time at the Junction End-of-year Luau! The kids loved singing and dancing to some summer hits...Brandon's class did Surfin' USA and Zach's class did the Hukilau. We all loved the teriyaki and shave ice too! Aloha Summer!

Memorial Day Campout

We had a great Memorial Day Weekend camping at Sugar Pine Lake with Grandpa, Grandma, and Aunt Jena. The boys got to go riding on a real mountain bike trail complete with streams, bumps, rocks and cliffs. It was pretty exciting...only one fall for each kid :). We also took Grandpa's canoe out fishing and to explore an island in the middle of the lake. We had a great campsite for exploring, with a stream, lots of fallen trees, and rocks to climb. The boys and Jerry even built a pretty good dam on the stream. Of course, we enjoyed the campfire and S'mores along with the Frost Boys Band playing every night!
