Lincoln's Last Day of his First Year

(From May 31st....)
Today was (for those that didn't read the title ;)... Lincoln's last day of his first year of school!
First Day of PreK-3:

Last day of PreK3:

He had an amazing year and really loved his teachers, Ms. Brittany, Ms. Amanda, and Ms. Phyllis. John Max was his best friend, though he played really well with all the kids in his sweet little class. He learned to write his alphabet, got really good at writing his name, memorized his address- and most of his classmates addresses! We've realized he has a very good memory (much better than mommy's!!), so when his classmates would recite their addresses to Ms Brittany, he was also memorizing them! So funny to hear him rattle them off at home... :) He had so many special experiences, great learning moments and fun adventures this past year!!

His teacher's loved their special gifts- cute aprons with the kids' handprints!

Some of the buddies...
I think Rosemary really thought she was part of his class this year, since we got to come to many of their fun events. She was right at home in his classroom! She was one of many younger siblings of the class, so maybe I'll get to be with this great group of moms again! Ms. Paige certainly knows how to talk Rosemary's language... ;)
Lincoln didn't really understand what "last day" meant, and was upset several days later when he realized that meant Ms. Brittany wouldn't be his teacher again- so I'm glad he finally gave in to her goodbye kisses!
Snuggling in the reading nook with little sis!
Q: "What are you most excited about for Summer?"
Lincoln: "going to (Grammie's) house and doing cannonballs!!"

He's certainly had lots of practice doing cannonballs this summer! Looking forward to another great school year- starting soon!!

He grew up so much this year! Such a sweet, sensative boy and I'm truly amazed at his knack fro remembering directions and names. You can come do cannonballs and play any time you want my precious grandson. Grammie loves you dearly!
