Liam finished up Joy School and is ready for Kindergarten. I always get a little sad at the end of the school year, but especially so at the conclusion of this year's Joy School. Next year will be the first time in 8 years that I won't have a child in a Joy School group. Joy School has become part of my weekly routine and I'll miss the structure it give our schedule. I'll also miss getting to see my friends on a regular basis! We mommies have enjoyed many a chat out front at the conclusion of a Joy School day. I think I'm also sad that my kids are growing up so fast. I'll now have more kids in school than at home with me. It's a strange transition. I'm sure it will be a good change for us. So, for now, farewell Joy School.

Me and my boy. I sure love him and am so proud of his achievements this year.
We had a potluck lunch party at the graduation. It was a nice way to end the year. I however was 40 minutes late to the party because Seth lost my keys right before we had to leave. I ended up having to call a friend who had to leave the party to come get me. Another friend was then kind enough to loan me her car so I could pick my kids up from school. I was frazzled and grumpy at the mishap, but in the end, it all worked out.
