As to be expected, the last week of school was a doozy of end of year stuff. Here's some of the highlights....
*Kindergarten graduation....my baby is heading off to 1st grade and a full day of school. Please don't judge me too harshly as I do the happy dance. By the way...Kindergarten graduation program....cutest thing ever!
*9th Grade Awards Night.....Julianne, due to her insanely good grades, was invited to the awards night. Seriously, in the past 3 years of Jr. High, the girl has had only had two A-'s to mar her otherwise perfect straight A GPA....and those were in 7th grade. But beyond the 4.0 GPA and recognition for things like foreign language fair, choir solo and ensemble, and other such activities she has participated in, she also won a rather big award...one that we didn't see coming. Each department picked one or two students who they felt had outstanding prospects, had gone above and beyond, and had achieved "greatness" for lack of a better word, in that department. Julianne's was awarded this special recognition from the French department.
*District Decathlon....like last year, Brandon got a high enough overall score in the Presidential Fitness Challenge that he was one of four 6th graders sent to represent his school at the decathlon.
*Rebekah got out of school a day earlier than the rest of her siblings. I think it had something to do with the last day of school being graduation for the seniors. So she went boating.
