Another year has come and gone

I can’t believe the school year is done already!  This year flew by so fast.  The boys both had a great year.  We loved their teachers, they made great friends, learned a lot, had fun, and grew and grew and grew.  it’s hard to believe I now have a 2nd and a 4th grader!  Seems like just yesterday they were these tiny little boys.

And now here is Logan on his last day of first grade:

And Connor on his last day of third grade:

Camryn wanted to get in on the picture taking action, but of course Logan wanted nothing to do with it.  But I love this picture of Connor and Cami (please take note of how Camryn has layered shorts and a dress over her pj’s.  She takes great pride in her ability to dress herself!)

And just because it’s always fun to compare, here is Logan on his first day of first grade:

And Connor on his first day.  I think every year Connor’s first day of school picture is similar to this.  Have I mentioned that he has a tough time with transitions and change?  The beginning of a new year is always a little rough on him.   The August humidity is also rough on my camera, hence the hazy quality of my first day of school pictures.

Connor's first day

Every year, I bring my camera to the bus stop on the last day of school.  Logan saw me with the camera, and this was the best I got.  Little stinker!

Connor, on the other hand, was much better about playing along with my incessant need to photograph all these little milestones in life.

We are almost done with week one of summer, and so far it’s been great!  Logan has been at basketball camp all week, and he loves it.  Swim team is in full swing, and both boys did amazing at the first meet last weekend.  I’m sure that I will be good and ready for the school year to begin come August, but for now, we are loving summer vacation!
