The boys’ last day of school was last Thursday. Thank goodness for all those organized Momma’s on my Facebook who’s adorable photos reminded me that I should do a last day of school photo to compare to our First Day of School ones. So after I celebrated making the last school lunch (so…many…sandwiches) we headed outside to take some pictures.
Evan hasn’t grown much physically but he’s grown a lot more emotionally this year. Other than the occasional over-tired meltdown he seems to get frustrated a lot less, and when he does he wants to work thru a problem rather than crying and quitting immediately (“I can do it myself!”). He was actually quite sad that school was ending and that he wouldn’t see his teachers and friends over the summer. 🙂 I’m not sure his teachers felt the same way as during their end of the year program Evan’s class was sitting down, yawning, spinning around and hugging each other…instead of singing.
Noah is of course much bigger than he was when he started the school year. He’s able to keep up with his brother running, jumping and climbing and is on his way to be just as chatty. We realized he is probably most likely left-handed – which would make sense because this kid likes to be different in every way possible. He learns a new phrase almost daily and loves music and playing in water (unless in has soap involved…then it is equivalent to acid).
Remind me not to ask these kids to smile because they make these teeth-baring squinty-eyed scary faces and look nothing at all like the adorable children they actually are.
At the end of the week I took them for new summer haircuts. I figured I’d get them cut short so it could grow out over the next few months.
What happened to my babies!?
So now we’re ready for some summer fun!
(of course in comparison to last summer anything would be more fun)
