Welcome! This is the place I write about Things I Notice in my daily walkabouts as well as what I might think about things in my world.

6th Grade "Graduation"

A very busy day with lots of laughs, and fun, and kids. Kyle finished 6th grade today and they had a ceremony and then some of the parents put on an awesome party in the school for them. They had moon bounces, candy games, water balloons, obstacle courses, ice cream, pizza, burritos, Vietnamese food, and on and on and on. Diane and I ran a "Photo Booth" and had a great time getting the kids to do four rapid pose shots. My poor photo printer worked overtime, we did just short of 200 prints during the party. Lots of fun. Kyle was recognized as a Presidential Achievement Academic winner, two medals for northern Virginia Band competition, Superintendent's Award for Music, Area Band Participant, and honored for auditioning for and making it to 8th Grade Advanced Symphonic Band during the 7th grade. Kirsten came back yesterday so the entire family was there. Beaming. But I think Kyle's favorite part was when he went into class dressed as in the picture below, they looked at him, and said, "Bond, James Bond!" I am not making that up!!"Bond, James Bond"Kyle
