Evie's Last Day - So long, RBES!

Today we're marking another Robert child's last day of school!

It's Evelyn's final day as a first grader, and when she takes her last step out of the building this afternoon we will no longer have any students at RBES. Boy it's a good thing grandma Joan took Evie to school this morning.  I probably would have had to pull over on the way home or something. :) Our kids have been so blessed to be able to go to school here.

It's the only school Eric and I ever knew as elementary students. It's the only school our children have known. And it's a really special place. One of a dying breed. A public school that still truly puts students first, that is accepting of all people and ideas - in fact, we have been thanked for Evie's faith. A place where my kids see teachers and staff that they know and are close to even outside of their Sunday School teachers and even their own grandma. This is a situation that we will never be able to duplicate.'s definitely a sad goodbye!

But Evelyn was excited and full of energy this morning!

She wasn't prompted to make all of those faces...that's our Evelyn. Resident bubbly girl and goofball!

Evie's favorite thing about first grade was "Everything!" And she's most looking forward to "more subtraction" in second grade. Haha. I know that she's worried about missing her friends when we move and has asked multiple times if we can come back as visitors sometime. I think we could probably make that happen. :)

Tomorrow we all look forward to SLEEPING IN. Yay summer vacation! If there's one thing I'm looking forward to with a new school, it's a new schedule. Next year the girls' school day doesn't start until 9:00am. Hallelujah. I will take the extra half hour of sleep or so every day.

The obligatory first day/last day pictures. :)

Evelyn was all sunblocked up and ready for field day. I hope all of the kids have such a fun day. :)

In about 4-5 hours we will have a second grader in our family. Life just keeps chugging along like a freight train!

We were able to go to the house this weekend, and there have definitely been some changes since the last time we checked in! Mario, our contractor, was busy busy busy last week. In three days our house has been completely de-wallpapered, prepped for paint, and the trim work is already almost done. I think you'll be hearing a lot more about Mario in the coming days...he's kind of awesome. But more about that tomorrow!

Happy last day of school to us!

I bawled dropping Lucy off for her last day of preschool. I don't know how to feel about her going to kindergarten yet. I'm going to be a giant mess the day I drop her off!
