No more pencils, no more books


This week was our first official week of summer here at the GRITS household. 

We wrapped up school last Friday with Honors Day where both Lego-Man and the Princess received a few awards:

Lego-Man won the Science Award in his class and was on the All A Honor Roll ALL YEAR!

The Princess won the Music Award, All A Honor Roll, and the Academic Excellence Award for her classroom (which came as a shocker to us since we struggled with her getting “seat work” done all year).


It’s hard to believe my 4th and 2nd graders are now, officially, 5th and 3rd graders.  *sigh*



And what better way to start our first official Monday out of school than at a Memorial Day pool party?!  Even though the water was FREEZING, the kids did not seem to care….and I tried to overlook their blue, chattering lips!



























I hope everyone has a great summer!

Hi, Tammy, it's nice to meet you! I've seen your name around blogland, so I hope that we can meet at one of these B'ham get togethers. I've met a few of the local girls before & look forward to more gatherings of all the bloggers in this area.
