Last Day of School

Today was the last day of school! Tucker is officially a third grader!

We had a fun day at the school! They had an awards ceremony in the morning and then got to meet their teacher for next year-he has Mrs Malinick. We spent about 45 minutes in her classroom and they did a little getting-to-know-the teacher "test". She seems pretty nice. None of Tucker's closer friends are in his class but I'm sure he'll be fine.

After we finished meeting the teacher, we went and got our lunch. This year they had the 1st Annual Family Picnic! We could order grinders and bring blankets, etc and eat on the big field by the school. We found a good spot with Maddie and Freddie and their parents. They had a rock wall for the kids but Tucker didn't want to go on it. (he's tried one before and doesn't like the way the harness feels) So we went and cheered on his friends.

Next it was over to the DJ area to dance! He played all kinds of great music and even the Chicken Dance and YMCA. The gym teacher had taught them all a dance to YMCA so he got them moving to the music!

It was really hot and Tucker had decided he had enough! We went to sign out with Mrs. Holmes and he got one last hug! He did really well this year and has done really well in reading especially-he is above-grade level now in reading and I just have to brag a little! It's hard to believe this is the same boy who couldn't read at all when he started 1st grade!

It was a good year and it's hard to believe he's now a third grader!
