School is officially out!!!
I thought today would be the perfect chance to share our “official” last day of the school year photos and interviews with you. This year we ended our home school year on April 28th. I NEVER in my head imagined getting out of school in April, but we put in 36 weeks of work and now we are “done”. I still have some summer lessons planned for the month of May but we will definitely slow down once the pools open.
Marissa wrapped up second grade and her third year of putting up with me for a teacher.
She is such a trooper.
Emily finished her second year of pre-k at home and will move on to Kindergarten with mommy next year.
I am excited and intrigued about how things will go with two kids officially in school. I know it will mean my days will be busier and that will be a big adjustment for me.
Finishing our third year of home school feels like a landmark. I nowhere near feel like I have everything figured out, but I also don’t feel scared anymore. Sure it takes work and effort on all accounts, but we are doing it and I would even dare to say we are doing it well.

It was so fun taking these photos and watching them pose themselves. At one point Emily turned her head and kissed her sister’s arm… of course I wasn’t ready to capture the photo and missed it.
Here are a few ways we make the last day of school (and days following) special at our house.
We have had so much fun celebrating over the past week!
- Last day photos
- Last day interviews
- Staying up late (just a little)
- Play outside A LOT
- Ice cream
- Special lunch out
- Taking a few days to just unwind before finding a new summer routine.
With this school year wrapped we are SO ready to say
What do you do to make the end of the year special?
