I'm a bit behind in posting, so this week I'm going to try and catch up. So, Memorial day weekend was a lot of fun for us, we wen to the parade, went on some rides at Herrin Fest and came home for funnel cake and fireworks.
This is the very first time we have ever done fireworks. The kids were very impressed.
Our friends came over, this one is Claire.
We also had some snap pops.
We threw them at the sidewalk.
We had to make sure the kids stayed far apart with the sparklers. We didn't want any singed hair or skin.
Cecilia, Parker, Clair, and Harvey has a great time. Their parents were a bit more stressed about keeping everyone safe.
Everyone wanted more snap pops.
Harvey and Cecilia kept wanting to touch the flame.
Harvey actually burnt his finger on the first one. He was a bit afraid after that, but the awesomeness of fireworks won him over in the end.
The parade was nice too. The kiddos figured out that waving = candy very quickly.
Cecilia tasted about 5 different suckers and finished 0.
We wound up leaving early because it was a very long parade. The kids didn't mind at all.
YEAY joy school is over!!!! Opps, do I sound a bit too excited? Eh, I can't help how I feel. Anyways, Graduation was Saturday. We had a nice low key celebration that was the perfect way to end the school year.
We Shared our family flag.
Everyone had a little input with this. Harvey picked the pink fabric and the sharks, Cecilia demanded stars, and Captain chose necromancy bells as an homage to his funeral career. I had way too much fun putting it together as it was my first craft in a month.
The kiddos received certificates. Harvey was obsessed with his yarn staying together, it made taking photos difficult.
We had ice cream for dessert, Harvey was very excited.
The first time we gave Harvey his hat, he refused to wear it. The only way it stayed on his head was the threat of loosing the for mentioned ice cream.
The prep song was a failure for singing, but a winner for cheering. I love how they are moving so fast it is blurry.
Again, Harvey was only cooperating for the ice cream.
Captain and Harvey sang a song. Well, captain sang, and Harvey kindly pointed to the words for him. Cecilia didn't get in the way.
These are the lovely ladies I taught with this year. I can't help but look at this photo and think about how short I am.
