Fast forward to today. My not so little girl graduated from the 5th grade and since she has been accepted into a magnet program will be leaving this awesome school next week.
How on earth can the last seven years have gone by in the blink of an eye?
The new administration decided to give the kidlets a promotion ceremony and did a truly outstanding job and unlike at Rosie's graduation last week all the parents were on the best behaviour. The children were asked to dress for the occasion and not wear their uniforms, for Lily this involved a 3 hour shopping spree that resulted in her deciding to wear something she already owned...shoot me now please.
The school doled out a huge amount of awards today but the kids were kept in the dark. She knew she was getting Principals Honor Roll and thought she was a shoe in for one; the D.A.R.E. project, I don't think she expected 5. I was so proud of her.
|The first of many awards today|
|Adam and Lily besties and worst enemies all rolled into one.|
|Her truly wonderful teacher Mrs Tamargo|
|Officer Chappel from the D.A.R.E. program|
|Certificate of Promotion and Principals Honor Roll.|
|5 achievement awards, 3 medals.|
|We went out to lunch to celebrate.|
|if by chance you weren't around 7 yrs ago, this is what she looked like when i dropped her off then|
Someone pass the tissues please.
