5th Grade Festivities!!!

John David has had one celebration after the other this past week. At his school he has 5th grade Crossing symbolizing the crossing over to the next campus. On Sunday night the 5th graders and their parents had their Crossing Party.

some of the boys hangin at their table
I just went back to this pic and am dying laughing
look closely at John David's eyes!! hahaha (the left eye is totally turned in)
I'm sure he was laughing at me while he was doing it!!!

I did not realize John David was crossing his eyes at me
thinking he was a little annoyed with his mother taking pictures...
I showed him the pic and he says I did not catch the full cross:)
the two of us are quite proud that we can cross one eye while looking straight with the other
I know, we are so talented!

mother-son dance
he is almost as tall as I am,
thinking he will pass me up this coming year!

the macarena

it takes a great dj to get all those boys out there with the girls!!

such a fun night to have with John David!!

Next was their last day of school
they had to have their field day in the gym since we got so much rain the night before

the macarena again:)
Caden is giving me the "not mom pics again look:)"

Next up was their Crossing ceremony

awards were given

songs were sung

and he graduated on to 6th grade...

It is so strange to see these boys all dressed up!!!!
Next year they will have to wear their jackets every Friday for chapel:)

John David and Max saying goodbye to the library:)

We had a very busy great week!!
I'm looking forward to a little down time:)

The girls have started swim team so that should keep them busy and tired.
I am so proud of Madeline for trying something new,
I promised her she does not have to do a meet just practices and she is good with that!
Yesterday Janie was whining that she did not want to go....
I told her to put her suit on "just in case she changed her mind"
She never checked up, just got in the pool and kicked away:)

The team had a "mock meet" last night,
Madeline and Janie said they just wanted to watch.
When Janie saw the kids getting ribbons she told me,
" I told you I wanted to do that"
haha, and no she did not!!!
I bet she will be the one that gets Madeline to swim a meet:)

We are looking forward to a "nothing to do" weekend  whooo hooooo!
