Hard to believe that the school year is out for the summer.
Navy finished kindergarten and will be moving on to first grade in the fall. He had a great year and is making strides in reading.
Lily is done with fourth grade. This year had been a bit of a struggle because more of the work required Lily to stay organized to get her assignments and work turned in on time. Her teacher gave us some great advice so that won’t be an issue in fifth grade.
I can’t believe that we’ll be gearing up for First Grade and Fifth Grade in the fall. However, we still have summer!
So many fun and exciting things are going to be happening soon, and we’re going to enjoy it while we have a break from school!
I don’t mind fundraisers. I know that the money goes towards things the kids want and need at school (like playground equipment and special events prizes).
I’m rather frustrating when we have so many fundraisers. The school year started with Gold Canyon candles. We had Girl Scout cookies for two months. Plus, there is Market Day every month, and the monthly specials (cookies, pies) for that.
So, when Lily brought this home the other day, I decided that we were opting out. We’ve done our fair share of fundraising!
Yet, I still looked at the catalog because I’m a sucker like that.
