Graduation and Other End of the School Year Events

It's summer!  Huzzah!  May is always such a crazy month with all that goes into wrapping up a school year.  It's nice to be past all that. 

So this happened.  Although I can't predict the future, Eli is probably our last graduate from BCS.  The younger kids fit much better in a smaller school. 

Eli and Miss Adorable, aka the graduates! 

Grammy and Annaliese came up for the big event.

The obligatory graduate and parents photo. 

Graduate and family!  Only missing Brianna, Sam, and Heather. 

Jack had an awards ceremony.  He received perfect attendance, certificates for woodshop and trap shooting, and a pin for drama. 

The elementary play this year was For The Love of a Good Book. 

I kind of like that they do play t-shirts each year.  Gives the girls something to wear to camp, lol. 

Hannah, friend, and a "book" from the set, made from a cardboard box.

My lil thespians.  Love the library backdrop. 

Elementary awards night.

Miss Hannah really cleaned up in awards this year. 

And Katie bagged a few, too, of course.

Katie and her teacher for the last 2 years.  Miss N will be taking a year off to write, and Katie's aged out of her class, anyway, so she'll be moving up to Hannah's former teacher next year. 

Hannah and her teacher for the past 2 years.  Hannah finished 6th grade, so she's bumping up to Jr High, where the kids actually change classes.  Hard to believe my tiny 12 year old is ready for that. 

Katie brought home 3 certificates and 2 trophies this year.  (She missed perfect attendance during asthma season.) 

Hannah brought home 7 certificates, 2 trophies, and a pin!  Probably the most impressive being the President's Outstanding Academic Excellence award, which is one of the certificates and the little round pin Hannah is wearing. 

Thrilled to have school out for the summer.  We've been hitting the library regularly, and just enjoying the down time. 


  1. Congratulations to your graduate and your award winners! What a busy, happy end-of-school-year season for you!!!! I'll bet the down time is really good for everyone. :)

    1. I'm totally enjoying the down time! Katie is a little anxious in unstructured time, so we still have a lose routine, but the restfulness has been good.

  2. Congratulations to all of you. What wonderful accomplishments. Enjoy your summer.
    Blessings, Dawn

    1. Thanks, Dawn! :) I'll have to check in and see what you guys are up to, too.
