Mahalo to Graphics From The Pond for this cute graphic :)
Well it was our last week of school and it was a whirlwind of craziness. What made this year different was that my oldest daughter graduated from the 6th grade.
She has been with me at school since she started in preschool at 3 years old. If you have followed my blog you know that this girl is her own person and marches to the beat of her own drum. If you met her she wouldn't say much, but if you had any sort animal or story about how you helped an animal she would become your best friend:)
Her 6th grade teachers really go all out and they had a dance along with their graduation ceremony this week.
This girl lives in t-shirts and shorts and wanted to wear jeans to the dance. Since her teachers told her she had to dress up she settled for a skirt. I thought she looked perfect.
She was front row and right center at the ceremony which was perfect for me. You have to understand this girl wants no attention at all!! All the girls in her class gave tear filled speeches of how much they would miss the school. Her teachers were great and had her read a story that she had written in class.
I think everyone was thrilled that she was a comic relief after all the tears.
Her teachers and principals presenting their leis and certificates.
Leis are then given from family and friends.

Her fun and wonderful teacher
The fun starts when all the kids give each other leis of candy, flowers and any other goodies that can be worn around your neck!
The graduation was over at 10:00 and I still had my kids in my class to pass out goodies to! At noon I said goodbye to my class, cleaned up a bit and quickly headed to the beach for a 6th grade party put on by the parents. It was a gorgeous day and I may or may not have napped most of the afternoon.
We left around sunset just as a bit of rain was sneaking over the mountains.
We arrived home at around 8 pm after a long, but fun filled day. My girls were exhausted and went to bed on their own!
After a long and busy week it was nice to be home and just kick back and relax.
So happy to be on summer break for 2 months!! How was your week? Go link up!
