I knew the day was coming fast, but it came faster than I wanted it to.
Shaylyn had 6th grade promotion. She is officially out of Elementary School. While she and I are both super excited about all the fun opportunities Jr. High has for her – I’m still sad that this girl is growing up so quickly.
I left Tanis home with all the kids but Jace and got to the Elementary School. I wasn’t as early as I hoped, but still ended up in an aisle seat so I wasn’t too upset. Eric had taken his car to the shop and had to rely on his buddy getting him to the shop only to discover his car wasn’t quite ready.
So, Eric was slightly late – but he made it in time for the important things.
The night started off with a surprise for all 3 of us. Shaylyn got the Presidental Fitness award! She was one of very few girls who did. There are 2 different types of the Presidental Fitness awards that they award – one is just measured on the athletic ability the other is both athletic and academic. Because our child had trouble turning in homework, she was awarded the one based only on athletic ability. We were still so proud of her.
Here’s to Jr. High! EEK!
