We were blessed beyond measure with Connor's teacher, Mrs. Hunter. She has been the perfect teacher for him in so many ways. This morning when Connor was talking excitedly about his last day of school, he suddenly said, "I'm going to miss Mrs. Hunter next year" and he actually choked up as he said it. It brought tears to my eyes. Mrs. Hunter has set the bar high for Connor's future teachers.

I was browsing Pinterest a long time ago and found a popular idea that I wanted to do for Connor. I purchased the Dr. Seuss book called Oh, the Places You'll Go! and decided to try to have each of Connor's teachers write a special message in it for him to have as a keepsake in the future. I asked Mrs. Hunter to participate, and this is what she wrote for him:

The places you'll goIf I wasn't convinced before that she was the perfect kindergarten teacher for Connor, that extra special message sealed the deal. When I read her message to Connor, his eyes lit up and he grinned so big. I'm not sure who loved it more, him or me. :-)
& the things that you'll see,
Can be everything that
You want them to be!
With your joy in learning
(and some hard work, too!)
Anything that you want
can come true!
Connor made some great friends this year at his elementary school, but his favorite friends at school are still the boys that live on both sides of our house. We have been so lucky to have neighbors on both sides of us with elementary school boys of their own. The 5 boys play together all the time and have become such great friends. We Moms have been taking turns carpooling and it is quite a sight to see 5 boys pile in and out of our minivans and SUVs! Here are the boys this morning on their last day of school.

Even though today was the last day of school, the end-of-year party was actually held last Friday. Since I was Mrs. Hunter's room mother, I decided on a beach theme and got so much help from all of the parents in Connor's class. The kids had a great time eating pizza and treats and celebrating the end of the year.

Everyone sing together now..."Schoooooool's Out.. For... Summer!"
