End of the School Year

We had lots of fun end of the school year events.  
I made the kids a special last day of school breakfast:

(Blue/ multi plates from Target clearance last summer.  Place card holders from Marshall's.  Paper straws - The Sugar Diva.)

The last day of school for us is always "Awards Day"  Some are given in the classroom:

And some in a 'big' presentation:

We had a field trip:

And it was (finally!) the end of baseball season.  Our first year of kid pitch in the books!
 As a devoted Cubs fan, do you know how hard it was for me to let my kid wear that ugly uniform, much less make these cupcake toppers?  :-)
 It's ok, at least we've won 2 in the Crosstown classic!

 Next to last day of school trip to the park with a Pizza lunch!  Last 'party' of the school year!

Last game was actually after our party - went out with a W!

 Spend the night friends.  Thumbs up for Summer Break!

Pool time!

ML's (first ever?) School Birthday Party

Poor ML.  Second child.  Summer birthday.  
When I called ML's teacher to schedule her "un" birthday party before the end of the school year, I told her it might be ML's first ever school party.

ML didn't request anything fancy (their school doesn't really allow fancy.)  Just a cookie cake with her name on it in Auburn colors.  (That's my girl!  War Eagle! :-)

Sweet, sweet friends.

ML's teacher gave her so many special birthday treats.  This was absolutely ML's favorite part.  She told me for DAYS ahead of time about the 'birthday bucket'!

Happy Birthday Girl!  A very merry unbirthday to you ML!
