Graduations & the Last Day of School

   Kayla graduated from middle school this year and I just can't believe she is off to high school in a few months.  She is very excited to start and can't wait to be back in school all day everyday this August.  It seems like she was just graduating from preschool a few years back!

We were thankful for in person graduations but they did split the students into two groups and of course all of her besties graduated at the ceremony before her so we were bummed to not get pictures of all of them together.  

These girls below are some new friends she made last year.

My beautiful girl!

After her ceremony the graduates received free In-N-Out and she was happy about that!

The next morning Brooklyn had her graduation from fifth grade.   She'll be off to middle school next and is also very excited to start!   Her ceremony  was a hard one for me because that elementary school has been a part of our lives for so many years.  I will miss seeing all the familiar faces and of course knowing I will no longer have any babies in elementary school makes me sad.  What happened to this tiny adorable preschool graduate?

Brooklyn was asked to write a speech and speak at her ceremony and she did such a great job!

She also had Kayla when she was in fifth grade.  She cried when she said goodbye to the girls, she adores Kayla and this year she fell in love with Brooklyn as well.  

The years have flown by!

After graduation Brooklyn opened a small gift from us.  This book had been signed by all of her teachers from Kindergarten to fifth grade.   It's a such a neat thing for her to have and look back on being able to read sweet words from all of her past elementary teachers.


Last Friday was the last day of school which meant it was time to take the traditional photos by the front door.  Just like the first day of school, the last day was also online from home.

Kayla all ready for her first day of eighth grade
