Saying goodbye to 3rd grade

Posted: June 25, 2013 in School

June 17-June 19, 2013: I can’t believe how fast this school year has gone by and I can’t believe Z will be a 4th grader this fall. Seems like just yesterday he was a baby. 😦 I am so incredibly proud of Z! He gets amazing grades, loves to read and write, participated in an impromptu advanced math group, he was in leadership club, he did the morning school announcements one day each week, he was selected to be a speaker in leadership day and parent ed night, was a huge success in the talent show, helped during the cultural fair, he has completed another year/rank in Cub Scouts, and I am sure I have forgotten something in this list. He is truly growing up and finding his own interests. I love this kid so much!

June 17 – there was a huge party for all 3rd grade students starting at 2:30 until the end of the day. All the classrooms had different themes and the students were allowed to roam the halls to go to whichever class activity interested them. They had several rooms; a karaoke room, board games rooms, twister room, face painting room, crafts room, and the list goes on. I helped out in Z’s class but he left me hanging and chose to go to different rooms. I was quite sad that he didn’t want me around him – I guess I cramp his style these days. My friend, L, got a few pictures of Z playing twister. Thanks L!

June 18 – was the last day of school. They always hold an assembly on the last day of school where the marimba clubs play the marimba – super cool by the way, the choir sings, the kids get recognized for their different clubs, the kids advance to the next grade, the teachers get on stage and do a fun dance, then everyone watches as the 5th grades leave under an archway.

June 19 – was our official first day of summer. Z spent it on his new laptop and kindle. We had to take a break and had a surprise lunch with hubby at Panera.

Now wish me luck…..summer with a 9 year old and 4th grader is going to be a stressful one I am sure πŸ™‚

Twister anyone.

Doing a little dance. OK, not really. Just watching everyone else doing a little dance.

There is no way Z is going to dance in this crowd. But he will dance on stage during the talent show. This kid.....

This is after the whole 3rd grade class moved to the 4th grade positions. Z is now a 4th grader. Here he poses with some classroom pals.

Lunch at Panera with daddy. Of course Z has his Kindle. He can't go anywhere without it. GEESH.

    I just got a little misty. I am proud to know the Fields’ family. This year went super fast. I hope the summer goes slow so they can be kids and enjoy. This is the time of the year I miss NJ. I miss playing at the Jersey Shore, catching “lightning bugs” (as we call them back east). But there is a lot of things to do out here also.
