POD: Last day of School


Today the kids headed off to their last day of school. They kids were both excited and sad to say good-by to another school year. Of course it was our last year with having a kindergartener, int the fall Violet will be in grade 1. Jacob will be in grade 4 and will probably have a teacher who will give him home work.
