Catch-up : The end of school and the end of Grandma's visit

Garrett finished his first year of school on June 9th. June has been/continues to be a total blur. The first 2 weeks of June were insane--Grandma left, work was absolutely out of control, and I had extra kids several days to help out our neighbors. INSANITY. Complete, UTTER insanity. Which is why I'm just now getting around to blogging about it.

We remembered to get a picture of Grandma with Brad and the kids while she was here:
Garrett was SO proud of himself on his last day of school. He told me "I'm ready to start Kindergarten TOMORROW". He loved loved LOVED the bear the school gave him.
And I will forever be greatful to his amazing teacher for giving him such a wonderful first year of school, which has set the tone for the rest of his education.

Kindergarten starts on 8/22, which is only **59** days away. I can't believe how fast summer is flying by. We're really happy with Garrett's intended school, and its finally a sure thing that Xander will be going there as well. X is actually going to come stay with us every day after school--which will make our neighbor's life easier since they won't have to make to seperate stops to pick up their kids from different schools, and will make MY life easier because all Garrett ever wants to do is have Xander over to play anyway. We're loving summer but I know its going to be over before we know it.

Next up: how we're spending our summer (so far)

Jadyn said the same thing - she thought she ended preschool one day and started kindergarten the next. She is SO ready. And my kids go back on Aug 24th so we have a very similar summer break. Hope you guys enjoy it!
