School Is Out!!!

Before school got out we had one last big bash with all their buddies!  As soon as school is out families flee for their home roots or to cooler destinations and it can be impossible to get them all together until August.
 I love having a house full of kids.  They swam, played, giggled,  and ate a lot of pizza!  I can only imagine as Hank and his buddies get bigger how many pizzas I will have to order.
The last week of school was filled with water day and class parties for the little two.
 While Karlie has out grown the parties, the real work had all been done and the middle schoolers were pretty checked out.
However, Hailey had her hardest week of the semester as she studied for her finals.  I am proud to say she earned straight A's with two honors classes and received the academic medal!  I think the poem she wrote her Honors Biology teacher exemplified what she learned more than any test he gave her.  During the year he called me one day to tell me that in all his years teaching he had never had a student that thanked him every day. He said Hailey was an exceptional student and wished his entire class was full with ones just like her.  He also asked me what her plans for a career in art were because she was truly talented.   While it is clear she has a talent for art, I think she might have just as much talent with words.

This is the card she wrote and gave to her Biology teacher on her final day:

This year you have taught us...
Classification of species, chromosomes, and more.
For example, the order Artiodactyla is of a bear.
I now know what lives in the deep sea, as well as the
arthropods that crawl on me.
I know Mecopteran, Plasmodia, Coleoptera, and Earwigs, EW!
All of the Orders I have learned from you.

A squid is a Mollusc, more specifically a Cephalopod,
They are made of a mantle and tentacles and look kinda odd.
But even squids aren't nearly as weird as
A Fang Tooth Fish, not to be eaten or served on a dish.

Another thing you should not eat is a snail.
Order Gastropoda, but infested with parasites if the Escargot is on sale.
Other worms such as Cestoda manifested a cow!
You eat the cow which gives you gut worms, ow!

It's just some worms till they start to eat your heart
(Taenia saginata) will slowly but surly eat the chambers apart!

The chambers they are what makes the heart beat.
They keep you alive every day.  These are the A...pex,
The Bicuspid and Tricuspid valves and the Ventricles.

Along with animals, we also learned chemicals.
Carbon is the molecule of living
And your scientific knowledge is of giving.
You have taught me so much this year,
Information, lessons, and memories I will hold dear.
So now I leave you with a tear
And look forward to all the memories we will make My Junior Year!
On the last day of school Karlie made a beach ball summer cake 100% by herself!  She gets an A in my book for sure.
I can't believe Hailey's freshman year is over.
She learned how to study.  Up until now she has been able to breeze through without really studying and memorizing.  At first she thought we were insane for saying she needed to use flashcards.  But by the end of the year she was a flashcard master. :)  She also grew immensely emotionally.  My little girl is ever so surly turning into a very wonderful woman.
 Karlie got contacts this year and grew a ton.  She played volleyball for the middle school and got straight A's the entire year!  She skipped a year of math but was able to juggle it and all her sports.     She was never happy with A's, she wanted 100%  She is our tenacious an determined little lady.  Karlie missed elementary school for a long time in the beginning of the year.   However by the end of the year she was sad it was over.  
 It just doesn't seem possible that my baby girl is now a 7th grader. :(
This year Kaitlin learned she is a natural at Math.  She placed in the top 20% of the Math Olympiad class in her school.  She really loves Math and especially likes doing difficult problems with Daddy.  She also placed in the top 10 for WordMasters all year!  Kaitlin really grew a lot academically this year.
She also formed a super sweet group of girls.  They have had no drama and are all just a bunch of great girls.  Kaitlin was a happy and hard working girl all year.  She started Kindergarten here and will now be the Queen of the school.
Hank started the year in neon and finished it in it.  I had to laugh when we looked at his first day of school picture and saw it was nearly the same.  He lost quite a few teeth this year and grew so much as a reader.  He also really developed athletically this year.  Hank is still our frat boy for sure.

 There should be a picture of me jumping for joy!  I am so happy to have my gang for the summer!
Let the summer fun begin!!
