School's almost out!

Rehm on the first day of school

Rehm at the end of the school year

I can't believe that tomorrow school will be out for the year. Wow, our first year of big school is over. What a great year it has been. Rehm had the best teacher in the world. I just don't know how she did it everyday. What a big job to have.

Here are some things Rehm has learned how to do over the course of the year.


Tie his shoes

Walk to school by himself (though we don't let him - someone always follows him)

Addition and subtraction

Writing and sentence structure. He is all about punctuation.

Lose teeth

He has made lots of friends and learned how to do lots of things for himself. I just can't believe how much he has grown this year and how much he loves school. He is very sad that it is time for summer. I think he is going to miss his teacher.

We went this afternoon for a presentation by his class. The kids got their teacher a plaque with their class picture and all their signatures on it. This was her first year teaching. She cried when they gave it to her. I did too. I really love this woman and really felt like God purposely put her in our families life this year. I will miss her so much next year. I guess the good news is I have three more kids who will go to kindergarten so we have a chance to have her for a teacher again.

Here is Rehm's part of the presentation from this afternoon. I'm sorry it is sideways. Not sure how I managed that but I can't get it to flip.

I can't believe that he is finished with Kindergarten already! Where has the time gone? Tell him that I am very proud of him and can't wait to hear all about it when you come home this summer. I loved his teacher also. I really appreciated her taking the time to put pictures on the class website. Be sure to send me the site next year also.

What a neat change to see - he's growing up before your eyes! Glad to hear he's had such a good year. It should be the start of great things!!
