As excited I am that school is ending and we get a break from the routine of the school year I am also very sad for the year to end. Our girls have both had excellent teachers this year that they have loved and both girls have mixed emotions about school ending tomorrow.
Last week as a favor to their teachers (and a way to capture the memories for myself) I offered to go into their classrooms and take some pictures of the entire class. We did group shots, individual shots, small groups, action shots, etc. I then turned them into a short slideshow for the teachers and their friends.
It was a fun little project. Time consuming, yes. But, I am so glad I did it, if for no other reason than I wanted the memories for myself.
Here is Natalie’s Class:
I was really hoping her teacher would move up with them to Kindergarten, but she is not. Natalie has been planning for about a week to give her teacher a big hug on the last day of school and tell her how much she’ll miss her this summer. I wonder if she might cry when she leaves her. She’s really loved her that much.
Now I am just hoping she’s still teaching Pre-K when Ethan goes in 2 years.
And here is Bella’s Class:
I had a few more of Bella’s class because I actually went back today for the “End of Year” party too.
Anthony and I have been very impressed with Ms. Vazquez. She expects a lot from her students, she is very aware of their strengths and weaknesses and either helps elevate them if needed or encourages them to continue to grow. Bella loves her too, I’m almost positive she’ll shed a few tears as she says goodbye to her tomorrow, but hopefully the promise of a visit to the pool tomorrow and the beach on Friday will help ease the sadness.
Summer here we come – its just a few hours away…FINALLY!
