Our last day of school was Thursday. We had a wonderful time during our end of the year celebration with parents. Everyone enjoyed eating pizza, looking through their memory books, and making plans for summer play dates.

At the end of our celebration I shared a movie..

I cry every time I watch it. 
The faces, the music, the memories- oh my
This year has just flown by and I will miss my students SO MUCH! It was a nice way to end our year- reflecting on all of the fun we've had. I gave each family a DVD copy. 

My parents absolutely overwhelmed me with very special gifts.

One was a very sweet memory book that includes adorable pictures of each child and a special message from each of them!

They also made me an adorable scrapbook story:

I love, love, love this!!! Looks like I will be having a fun, relaxing summer! 


Thank you so much for the thoughtful gifts. I was absolutely overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity! I will cherish these sweet books forever and have shared them with anyone who will listen! 
More importantly, THANK YOU for sharing your amazing children with me! We had an awesome year together and I am so proud of each one of them. They inspired me daily!
Thank you for all of your support throughout the year.
Have a wonderful summer!
