Another Year in the Books

Another Year in the Books

It’s hard to believe, but soon we will be turning our calendars to June, 2010.  A true sign of how fast time seems to be flying by is that the kiddos have finished up another year of elementary school!  No longer do Jen and I have a 1st grader and a 3rd grader…but rather a ‘soon-to-be’ 2nd and 4th grader!! (and one who hasn’t even started yet! :) )  Wow.  It’s almost as if I blinked and missed a year.

Although we are happy for Cam and Ellie, we are genuinely sad to see this year end.  They were both blessed with such AMAZING teachers who helped make the year truly special.  Even though I know they will encounter a number of wonderful teachers throughout the years, I have a feeling we will be using the ones we had this year as the measuring stick.  Not only did they learn a lot, but they really enjoyed school – which has to be a sign of a truly great educator.

I meant to get these pics up a little sooner, but now seems just about as appropriate of a time as any.  Here are Cameron and Ellie’s school pics taken earlier this year:

I hope all our friends with kids had as special of a year as we did…and here’s to all our ‘educator-friends’ out there – have a fantastic summer!!

Take care,

    Wow! 4th and 2nd Graders. Time is going way too fast. I love the pictures, any chance you have a extra of each just lying around? You knew I would ask! Congratulations Cameron and Ellie…and you too, Mom and Dad.

      We only ordered one 8×10 of each so I could just scan it in and make copies. I’ll try to print out a couple and get them sent out to you.

    Great pics!

  3. Great pictures. Did you add their names or did the school do that?
