Last Day of School!

To celebrate a great year, Colby's class had a big party on the last day of school!  

After Colby's party, we headed to Brody's school to celebrate the last day of school with him and the other first graders.

Brody had an amazing year in first grade with Mrs. Pinson.  He has learned and grown so much.  We are so thankful that God continues to bless our boys with such wonderful teachers!  Colby is hoping to have Mrs. Pinson for his first grade teacher too.  

The Class of 2025 is moving up to second grade!

First Grade Author's Party

On Monday, May 19, we attended Mrs. Pinson's Author's Party.  Every student in her class presented a book that they had written, illustrated, and published themselves over the last 4 months.  These kids have worked so hard on these books in Writing Workshop, and it definitely showed.  Each book was unique, creative, and fun to hear.  One of Mrs. Pinson's former parents, who is also an artist, designed the front covers of all the books, and she did an amazing job.

Brody's book was titled Jack and Annie's New Adventure to Candy Land.  Writing and illustrating a book is a huge challenge, and we are so proud of the effort that he put into his book.  His hard work definitely paid off!

TOTs Shine Time Performance

Colby had his final Shine Time performance with TOTs on Saturday, May 17.  We are amazed by all that he has learned this year.  Watching his motor skills improve and his confidence with athletics grow has been so much fun.  We are very proud of him!  He is really going to miss Ms. Ginny and the TOTs program next year.  

Kohl's Cup Soccer Tournament

Brody played in the Kohl's Cup Soccer tournament on May 17 and 18.  They played really well together and ended the tournament with 2 wins and 1 loss.  This is a talented and fun group of boys!
