Finishing the School Year

The end of the school year is always so crazy.  The blog has been hit or miss with a lot of the school activities, but hopefully this will finish the school year off.

Kayla went on a field trip to a Drillers baseball game.  It was not my idea of a fun field trip, but Kayla was excited to be out of school.  It was hot and extremely crowded.  There are only 2 days at the end of the year set aside for schools to take field trips to the ballpark.  There were a lot of people there.

They started by eating lunch outside of the ballpark.  This is Kayla and her friend McKenna.

The upper grade kids from Lone Star were also there that day.  Here is Kayla with Gabby.  She is the daughter of a friend of mine.  Her mom was one on Caroline's teachers at PDO.  We have known her for many years.

Kayla and I left as soon as they started loading the buses.  She was more than eager to leave the game!

Another end of the school year activity is the Variety Show.  Kayla said it was called a Talent Show up until they finished with the auditions.  Then it was changed to Variety Show.  That should tell you all you need to know!

Here is Kayla waiting to play the piano.  She did a great job.

Kayla also did her dance solo.  Here she is waiting to perform.

The Variety Show lasted 2 hours.  I was really proud of Kayla.  The teachers in charge of the show had nothing but wonderful things to say about Kayla and her performances.  They were so grateful for having someone so prepared.

I then went to Caroline's class to take one last picture.  This was my baby's very last day of kindergarten!

Well, that should do it.  I guess I now have a first grader and a fifth grader.  We even got report cards in the mail...finally.  Kayla made straight A's and Caroline got all 3's.  They will both be moving up next year!
