Goodbye First Grade

I can not believe we have a 2nd grader in our house! Once they hit school it seems like the years are just flying by. Jaxon had a great year in first grade. We continue to feel blessed with such a good school, teachers, and community of people surrounding him. Jaxon really is a natural student... he loves to go to school, enjoys learning, likes being with his peers, and makes school just plain fun! We were super proud of the progress he made this last year as a learner, as a friend, and as a leader. It is so fun to listen him to read like crazy these days and he has figured math out that I struggle with :) He's gone from being walked up to school everyday to jumping out and heading into class all by himself, as well as doing things like homework every night and keeping track of his school responsibilities. He has grown so much! I love that I can still be a part of his day by getting in the classroom some and getting to take him to school each day as well as pick him up. It was great to meet and get to know some more parents this year. Wow, school!!! Some days I still can't believe I have a kid in school :) We are excited for 2nd grade and Jaxon is especially looking forward to his own locker and the new wing next year. It will be here in a blink of an eye! So here is our goodbye to first grade.... thank you for a great year!

 Last week...Field Day... it was a fun HOT afternoon with all the kids.

 More Field Day... Jaxon loved it! (it was 10 different games...perfect for our competitive boy, he took it all very seriously :)

Last Day of First grade
 Picking him up after school... Austin loves to wave goodbye to him each morning from the van and we always pray for him as he runs up to school...  after school Austin waits patiently for big brother to come out and play or go home for an afternoon snack!

Last day with some buddies...
 Gabe R, Jaxon, and Austin on our way home

And to celebrate...  we headed straight to the POOL! Nothing kicks off summer then starting at the pool on a 90 degree day! Hello, summer break!!!
