Dads and Dudes....Then Kindergarten Awards!

The last week of school continued to be a busy one, with two events on Tuesday before noon!  Steve started his morning by going up to the school for Dads and Dudes Day with Bennett.  He enjoyed a light breakfast with her, and finished an art project that she had started. 

Bennett is definitely a daddy's girl, so the undivided attention is always treasured.  I know Steve was also happy to attend her program, and enjoyed the sweet 45 minutes together.


Following her program, I met Steve up at the school for Preston's awards ceremony.  Every kindergarten teacher holds a little ceremony at the end of the year, so Miss Taylor was no different.  She showed a slideshow of pictures of the kids throughout the year: on their various fieldtrips, hanging in the classroom and just growing up over the course of the year.  Then she handed out her awards.  Preston got "Best Boy Athlete."  Once again, it was another fun hour.  It is always neat to watch our children interact with their friends.  However, we see such a big difference in how Preston acts now, versus the beginning of the year, indicating he grew in more than just months.
We are so proud of both of our older children and all that they are accomplishing at school, home and with their extracurricular activities.  We have a fun summer planned, so I don't want to rush into the next year; but we are all looking forward to the new school year and what it will bring.  Just happy that we survived kindergarten and second grade.
