Since today is actually his birthday, we did something a little different and went up to the park/water park to play and have a picnic. We went with Maria, Joseph and Sarah as well as Tracy, Sophia and Matthew, so we had quite the gang. It was a beautiful day and a really fun time for everyone I think!
We're having Kyle's favourite for dinner at his request - tacos! Not sure if we'll go get a cupcake or something for him too or maybe go for ice cream!
Happy Birthday Kyle!!

He really loves his teacher and she'll be teaching Grade 1 next year, so I'd love it if he got her again, but who knows. We'll have to wait until September to see!
Very proud of him for doing so well this year and it's hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of the year. The Kindergarten kids participate in the Grade 7 assembly tomorrow and sort of "escort" them out apparently. A short day with report cards and that's all that's between us and summer holiday! Amazing!

I also did 2 cards with this kit and love how both of them came out!

After doing the printing, he had to draw a picture of course.
The funny thing is that after doing this at home, Kyle's teacher asked to talk to me after class yesterday and she wanted to show me the journal work he had done yesterday and it was something quite similar though on a different topic! Part of the reason she wanted to show me was that she thought it was so cute. He'd written "Thank you Ms. ___ for your help, but I'm going on vacation." and then he'd drawn a picture. So cute! And we're not quite going on vacation yet, but he's excited!!
He's also really improved his reading with the home reading books he's bringing home every day and I can see his reading confidence improving. He's much more willing to try and sound out words now and likes the challenge of words he doesn't know. It's so much fun for me to see him doing all these things! Think he'll be getting a couple of new books for his birthday!
His teacher also let me know that I might want to come to the awards ceremony towards the end of the month because Kyle will be getting a citizenship award! Cool! Can't wait to see what Grade 1 will bring!

This is the card I made for our anniversary! The heart has metallic paint on it and the big brad says "love". Gotta love it when you can use some stash to do things like this (the paper and heart)!
This is the little thing I did for George for our anniversary. We're going away in a couple of weeks, so we're not spending much on gifts right now, but he loves chocolate, so I got one chocolate bar for each year we've been married and cut the same number of flowers for a "bouquet". I used my MM Slice for all the flowers!I guess that's about it for today really! Just trying to get some things done around here this morning after a busy weekend. Need to finish off a couple of things and get all my new class stuff submitted today for July classes as well.
Looks like it's going to be another warm one for sure and that the next few days will be the same. Kyle was extra happy to be going to school this morning because it was "messy day" where they get to play with paints, sidewalk chalk, a water table, etc outside for a while this morning. Good day for it anyway!
Well, going to try the daily blogging again this month though it didn't go so well last month! Here's to better timing this month!
