Finishing up school

The end of the school year is always a whirl wind.  In 3rd grade they hold a classroom store at the end of the year.  Of course, Ainsley Grace wanted to sell donuts!  We had so much fun making them together.  Unfortunately, the kids at school had never had a cake donut made from whole wheat flour. Oops.  But she had a great time...  She also finger weaved a bunch of strings to sell.  That worked out great! 



While running an errand to get supplies for donut making, Whit saw the rides outside Fiesta.  He proceeded to SCREAM the entire time in the store until we paid and left so he could ride.  He is training me quite well.

The kids now have a complete obsession with the Rainbow Loom.  I went to the store and bought Ainsley Grace one because she really was persistent on how bad she wanted one...   She was excited when she opened it.  Quickly afterwards, Lexi looked at me and asked, "Why didn't I get a Rainbow Loom??!"  So, I gave her the extra one I bought as a gift.  I didn't know she wanted one??  Now they can be looming sisters.  THEN, Anderson followed the girls around and bugged them sufficiently to earn his OWN Rainbow Loom.  And when Buddy's friend came over before soccer to play for a little bit, what did they do?  Hide and seek?  Chase?  No, they loomed bracelets......  And here are the girls looming with their friends.  

Lexi also has a school business.  Her and her friend found something to do with the millions of index cards they have at school.  They decided to color bookmarks and sell them.  One draws the mouth, the other draws the eyes.  She comes home periodically and uses my laminator.  They have quite a business going.  Here are two of the Dweebs as they are called.  Cute.

Here is a picture of a paper Ainsley Grace wrote at school.  It was such a sweet story, the teacher tells me her strongest area is writing.  

Here is Whit lounging on this brother.  And visa versa.  

Well, here they are on the last day to wear Uniforms.  This is AG's last day to wear a jumper!   

Whit and I ran by the library to grab some books the kids had requested.  It lasted for about 2 minutes.   Wild man, he cannot sit.  It's just impossible.  He must stand or move.  Or lay. 

Stan and I went to a party before school was out... We were the last to leave.    Doh.  And there is Stan doing the earthquake machine at the Perot Museum.  We went to a work party there, it was fun because there were no lines!  Stan could earthquake as much as he wanted....

Here is Lexi on the official last day of school.  She got her blue bonnet books award, she was very excited.

School is finally out!  I'm soooo happy to have my kids home.  My goodness, they are now 6th, 4th and 2nd graders.  WOW.
