Interestingly the elementary concerts were split up by ages/grades.
Yes, that meant we had to go to the elementary school twice in one week in the evening but at the same time, I appreciated that they weren’t trying to fit _everything_ into one night for the kids’ bedtimes sake.
They both enjoyed waving to us from the risers.
It’s amazing to me that little Newbie there is now in what I think was Little Miss’ first dress.
Thunderer came along (naturally) to a school event where Little Miss and a group set up a rube goldberg machine.
While she waited for it to actually do something she pretended to meditate.
The goal of the machine for this group was to close a book (and squash a mouse).
It didn’t work 100% as expected but did at least do what it set out to do.
They even won the ‘most creative’ award.
Before anybody asks, not every group did win something.
It was a quick trip and then we were on our way back home, but not before Thunderer got to hug her biggest sister.
Soon after her birthday, maybe the next weekend, there was a school dance.
To prepare she MADE her own dress!
Here’s a close up of the belt too.
And then, because she has a boyfriend who met her at the dance there are a couple pictures there.
Then it was time to gather the group for a silly picture.
And a final one with her best friend.
There comes a time in a student’s life when they start getting spammed by snail mail.
TJ has now hit that point.
We’re very proud of his pre-ACT scores.
Thunderer was approaching four in these pictures. It was time to see how ready she was for Kindergarten.
They do their best to gather data on children’s vision…
and mental growth…
She passed or exceeded all of them with flying colors.
Little Miss, now in 8th grade, had the opportunity to go to some sort of camp for a couple days this fall.
The disposable cameras we sent her with didn’t turn out many good pictures at all, but I did manage to send her off after snapping a good picture of her.
It’s difficult sometimes to get them all to stay still to get a good shot. Sometimes we have to settle for getting them in smaller groups.
I think this school morning was a teacher late start day or maybe Thunderer was still in bed so Redflare walked them to the stop alone. I’m not sure at this point.
Had some fun pictures hiding away that should see the light of day. 🙂
