Last Day of 3rd Grade

Macen has had a busy half week of school. His school is k-3 so all the 3rd graders move to another school in the fall. The school makes a big deal of them moving onto bigger and better things. This morning the 3rd graders went bowling. As soon as they got back to school, there was a mile run around the school. Macen came in at 6th place out of 120-150 kids approx. After lunch they got to walk through a "tunnel" of all the other students, staff and parents of high fives as they worked their way back to their classrooms. He's not really excited to be done with school despite the 1st picture. He had an amazing teacher this year and he wanted to keep going! His teacher didn't teach from a book/blackboard majority of the time. He had the kids doing things to learn instead of reading it or listening to it.  Such an effective way to teach kids, especially for Macen. I wish there were more teachers like him. Mostly I wish he could move up each grade level with Macen while teaching Maddox at his level at the same time, lol. If only it could work that way :) But since it doesn't, I am eternally grateful for the 9 months we got with him.
