Chip's 5th Grade Graduation

Chip graduated from 5th grade on Thursday.  Major milestone.  No more elementary school....moving on up to Middle School.  Seems like just yesterday that I was walking him in for his first day of Kindergarten. 

Look at my boy on his "Meet the Teacher Night" that first year of Kindergarten. Cute little pumpkin.

And now he looks like the Mayor!  When did he grown into such a man-boy?  

He did not want to wear dress shoes.  It was traumatic.  He thought he looked goofy.  We assured him that he looked handsome.  He reported after the graduation ceremony that he was the only boy in fancy shoes.  I don't believe that for a second!

They had the sweetest little parade through the school and all the other classes came out and clapped for them as they walked by.

In addition, to his Promotion Certificate Chip was also awarded the American Legion Honoree Certificate.  There were 12 kids out of the 144 fifth graders that were given this honor.  We had no idea and were so proud when his name was called.

Our family!

Chip and his awesome teacher!  We love Ms. Harden!

Goodbye Fern Bluff!  For twelve consecutive years I have dropped off or picked up someone at your doors.  What an awesome elementary school and a fantastic start for our two boys.  Wonderful teachers, staff and administrators.  I love me some Bobcats! 

This is Harry with his First Grade teacher Ms. Thibodeaux!  Oh my goodness, look how he has grown! 

So, Chip was happy to graduate, but even more thrilled that it is SUMMER!!!  Woo Hoo!  Oh Yea!  Bring it on!

As you will see on the sign, they had graduation the day before the last day of school.  So we did what any sane person would do, and skipped the last day of school.  How can you graduate and then be expected to come back for another day?  That is crazy talk!

So we are off and running with summer!  Hitting the pool on the daily and I have already heard "I'm bored!" more than once.  Oy.

Happy Graduation Chip!  We are proud of you!
