Can you believe that we had school until June 25th? This is our first full week of Summer Break! Jackson had so many fun projects that he wanted to hold onto forever, that we just don’t have room to keep, so I took pictures of him holding them and sent them away.
Jackson didn’t approve of that part, but you can’t hold onto everything! I had to wait until he was in bed and sneak outside to the trash can like a thief in the night.
When I asked him what the best part of First Grade was, he told me, “play time”, which I am happy they still get.
Next year Jackson will move to another wing of the school, wear an oxford shirt and a TIE! He won’t get out early on Fridays and is expected to learn cursive and multiplication.
I am sure that he will move through it with as much joy and ease as he has his previous years.
As cliché as it sounds it seems like just yesterday these two were nervously awaiting the start of a new school year.
