Jack and the Beanstalk

Abby's class put on the play "Jack and the Beanstalk" for families and other classes at the end of the school year.  This was actually something Abby remembered seeing as a first grader, and what she mentioned when she got her teacher letter last summer.  She was excited to play the role of "Narrator 2" and her whole class did a great job.  They had several different shows, so Dave and his parents were able to make it to one, and I snuck away from school for a bit to see another.  I love that she made some great memories like this in second grade!

Dance recital

The girls did a great job at their dance recital!  Abby's group performed "Heroes" and "True Colors"--I loved both of their dances and costumes so much this year.  Norah danced to "Silly Willy" and "Say Say Oh Playmate".  She was definitely the one that the audience was laughing at on Saturday night, as she was distracted by a fraying ribbon on her costume, picked her nose, and ended a song backwards...  She loved being on stage, though!

Norah wrapped up her last year of ECFE in May--crazy to think that we are done with that stage of life completely after 8 years!  Norah loved her teacher, Ms. Jodi, and is excited that she'll have her for preschool next year, too.  We have worked with Ms. Pam as a para since Abby was a baby, so will miss her a lot!  Norah had a great year with no separation issues, and always loved any opportunity to do projects, painting, writing center, puzzles, etc. at class.  She is ready and excited for preschool!

Carley State Park

This spring, we had some amazing weather, and Dave had a tip about bluebells at Carley State Park.  We decided to meet up with Dave's parents for a Sunday afternoon to check it out.  I camped with my dad and brother when we were younger at Carley, but hadn't been there in years.  It was beautiful!
