I didn’t get it done. The weather simply has refused to cooperate with my plans to get a Sunday Snapshot of the birthday boy.
But I’m not giving up.
For now, since the weather still doesn’t look like it’s going to cooperate, I must move on.
School is out. And as I’ve done in years past, I’m doing a quick recap of the school year. Because anything I want to remember, I’d better write down.
I don’t have a first day photo of him. They staggered the kindergarteners first day of school, so Jude got to sleep in. I did do a post about the little man just a few days later. And boy, has he changed.
He is 43 1/2″ and 40 pounds. He’s grown 2″ and gained 4 pounds in the last year.
His favorite thing about kindergarten? Playing with the blocks.
What did he learn? To write some words and stuff.
What is he most excited about doing this summer? Playing outside and riding my bike.
She is 48″ and 51 pounds. She has grown 1 1/2″ and actually lost 2 pounds in the last year.
Her favorite thing about 1st grade? I liked to learn to read books. And read my homework.
What did she learn? I learned to help people when they get hurt.
What is she most excited about doing this summer? Going to the beach or the swimming pool.
P.S. I have to do a separate post about just how much progress Isabelle made this year. The kind of progress that made me and her teachers cry.
She is 48″ and 50 pounds. She has grown 2″ and has gained 2 pounds in the last year.
Her favorite thing about 2nd grade? When we had a Witch’s Brew. It was at Halloween and we used gummy worms for earth worms.
What did she learn? Regrouping. First you would do math problems and then put lines down and then across. And then if there was a smaller number on the top, you’d have to borrow a ten from the number before it.
What is she most excited about doing this summer? Going to the neighbors and swimming in their lake.
He is 56 1/2″ and 87 pounds. He has grown 2″ and has gained 4 pounds in the last year.
His favorite thing about 4th grade? Making a lot of new friends.
What did he learn? Algebra. And how to multiply and divide big numbers.
What is he most excited about doing this summer? Playing basketball with my new basketball hoop.
I’m not quite sure I’m ready for summer, but evidently summer is ready for us.
I’ve got the sprinkler, a jumbo-sized box of Goldfish and a freezer stocked with popsicles.
Bring it on.
