Clare is 7 days away from being done with elementary school. After seven years at the same school, I think she is ready is move on ,but there is a definitely a bitter sweetness to it all. The end of school brings lots of celebrations, and especially at the end of 6th grade!
First, I let Clare stay home for one day....a "6th grade skip day." so to speak. We had a really fun day together.
We headed out for our day!
We went shopping,
got our toes done,
went for lunch and then planted some flowers.
It was a special day with my oldest girl.
Our church had a special blessing for the 6th graders. We had a nice dinner, and then the parents read a letter of blessing over their child.
I knew I wouldn't be able to get through reading a letter to Clare, so thankfully, Casey fulfilled the task. We are so proud of her, and I just can't believe that she is going to middle school.
It was a nice evening with our church group. Next week, we have the 6th grade party and a celebration program at school! Then, summer will be upon us!!!
