Last day of school...



Well Friday was Hannah's last day of Elementary school. I figure that since I didn't have the camera (because Pat had it) to take a first day of school picture, I would do the last day picture... So here she is.. The last day at Hillcrest Elementary...





The Army shirt was from Sam.. Who is pictured here with Hannah, Carla, and Megan.. This was her FAVORITE kid safari staff member.. He had given her the shirt and an Army bear! It was wonderful. Hannah was very touched.



Had to get a picture of her class.. So this was everyone!! OMG... Great group of kids! (most of the time!)

At the end of the day.. it is tradition that all the kids in the school line the hall, and do a clap off for the 5th graders. It is pretty awesome to see 400 kids and staff clapping for the 5th graders.. NOT to mention emotional!! I think all 5ht graders were were crying and a lot of the other people in the hallway! I tried to get a picture of Hannah, but all I got was the back of her head.. IMAGINE that...



When the kids leave the school, they are given a crane. It is a symbol of peace.. This is Hannah's




Just as any wonderful Fairy Godmother would.. Dawn was up for all of the excitement!! She was there for graduation to hold my hand and help me through the tears. She spent the day on Friday at school goofing around with Hannah and then to Grand Slam with all the 4th and 5th graders.. OK, she was sitting in the "party room" reading a book, but she was there, forcing cupcakes to the kids...

All things said... it was a pretty great day!!!
