Preschool Graduation

Paris just completed her first year of preschool this year and absolutely loved it. She loved Mrs. Amy and also enjoyed having some friends from our ward in her class too. Since she won't be five until November, she gets to do one more year and is so excited to be able to go back to Mrs. Amy's preschool next year too! Paris has amazed all of us this year with her reading...she reads chapter books these days with hardly any trouble and absolutely loves to read as much as she can! Paris mostly takes after Bubba, but I'm glad she seems to have inherited my love of reading-she is such a smart, sweet little girl and we are so proud of her! She was supposed to say a line as part of the graduation ceremony and was a little too nervous to actually do it in front of everyone....I'm guessing next year she won't be quite so shy! She didn't want to wear her hat either...the girl definitely knows what she wants/doesn't want to do!

Kindergarten Graduation

Savannah finished kindergarten this year and it has been such a great experience for her. She was doing pretty well reading before the school year started, but now she reads everything and her writing has improved so much...she loves to write notes and stories and her handwriting and spelling amaze me! She has made so many friends and although she is still pretty quiet and shy, she has come out of her shell so much and has gained a lot of courage which has been so fun to see. She loved her teacher Mrs. Davis and I'm glad she had such a great experience this year. Next year she will be switching schools since she has been accepted into a French immersion program in Provo. The drive will not be fun, but she is excited to learn French and we are so excited that our children will have this opportunity to become completely fluent in another language with minimal effort on their part. For now, we are just planning on enjoying the summer and sleeping in (Savannah is not a fan of being woken up, which I had to do almost every school day this year!
