School is almost out...

End of the school year festivities are in full swing. Picnics, field trips, potlucks, and basically frantic running hither and yon. Today, Devon and Renie had a picnic with their classes from Lands End. We went to the park and they ran around with their friends for a couple hours, playing on the playground and bounce house.

This evening the third grade classes had a potluck dinner and then the kids gave their parents tours of the rainforest they've constructed in the third grade wing. (Actually it's like a third grade corner. I think there are 3 classrooms.)

After the dinner I took some pictures of the girls in the trees by the school. The trees were loaded with blossoms and I just couldn't resist.

And last, but certainly not least, dare I say it? Devon has been consistently pooping in the potty. I know I made the same announcement back in January. But I really think it's different this time. (PLease let it be different!) I think we have finally broken the cycle and he's able to do it without pain and therefore without fear and therefore he doesn't hold it thus confirming fears. So as I mentioned in a previous post, he's been earning Pirates of the Carribean action figures.
