last day of school:

our last day of school has finally arrived.
it began with nic's fifth grade promotion.

it's hard to believe he'll be in middle school next year!

i'm so proud... 
and can't tell you how much i love being around this kid.
oliver definitely feels the same way.
i'm glad he was able to attend the ceremony.
i'm off to a first grade picnic....
(and may have more pictures for you later.)

the year began like this:

our summer officially begins tomorrow.
can't wait.
