Our last day of School.


How can I be this far behind on posting such an important day for the kids?!  Ok, I'll try to be better, and now that we only have 5 more days of school left- I will have no more excuses!

Eli has been going to ECFE since he was 2 years old, and on the verge of a baby sibling taking over his territory.  We started him thinking it would be great one-on-one time with us since we would have a new little one in the house.  We LOVED our first experience in ECFE, and have stuck with it ever since. 


Adi was lucky enough to join us for the first time this past fall.  She has absolutely loved every minute of it.  We didn't have the separation issues with her like we did with Eli.  Probably had a lot to do with Eli being on one side of her, and having her best friend, Aylah on the other.
Can you even believe how much younger they look here?  This was in Sept. 2011.


 They have grown and changed so much, and have made many new friends.  We love our teacher, Ms. Marge.  She has been nothing but wonderful to all of us.  My kids love her, and it took a couple weeks after school was finished for them to stop asking to go and see her!
 
 Her true colors would show right through.  I love this about her.  She is who she is.  She's a rough, tough, busy little girl.  But is also a princess in every way.  I didn't think it was possible- but she is all of that. 


The other day she was outside in her Princess Ariel gown digging for worms, and hugging the ones she would find.  She wanted Mama to follow suit.  I'm not afraid of worms, but I'm also not interested in hugging them.  She told me they were her friends, and very nice, but it wasn't enough for me!



Eli was just a nice big brother.  He'd do his own thing for the most part, but was there to comfort Adi if she ever needed it.  He's a pleaser in every way, and he had a special little bond with Ms. Marge.   It's sad for me to think that he's all done with ECFE classes.  He's a big boy now, and is all ready and registered for pre-school in the fall!


Adi loves to do art projects, and she wasn't interested in stopping even for a second to snap a picture with Ms. Marge.  




Eli loved to be on the playground, and was always excited when the weather was nice enough for us to go out for a little bit to play.  He's going to be so excited when he will be able to play on this playground every day during pre-school!



Adi and her friend, Aylah, had lots of fun together in school.  Since these two are less than 2 months apart they will probably spend their entire school career together!


We celebrated our last night at ECFE with an ice cream party.  There were plenty of candies and sprinkles to go around- exactly what our kids love!




We gave our hugs, and said our good-byes.


And had to have one last special picture with Eliott and his wonderful teacher.

Isn't it sad when ecfe comes to an end? Our class ended last week, and Orelia hasn't quite figured out what that means yet. Your kids are so cute and always dressed in style :) And I can't believe you only have five days of school left. Yay for you and yay for summer!

What great pictures!

Both of my kids were in ECFE also. We loved the program and the teacher so much, and i have such good memories from those days. It goes by so quickly.

That being said...Bring on Summer!
