Lane had his last day of school at Noah's Ark Preschool on Wednesday, May 22, 2013. You can read all about his first day of school here. He started the year at Butterfly Christian preschool, but switched to Noah's Ark in February. Kyle and I were so, so happy with the switch. We just loved his teachers Ms. Amy and Ms. Cindy, and were impressed with all of the fun things the school did for the kids. He will be going there for summer camp the month of June and then will start back up for the full 2013-2014 school year in September!
On the last day, the whole preschool celebrated Splash Day. I volunteered to help out, so I was able to get some cute pictures of Lane and his classmates. He loved playing with the boats in the water tubs!
Ms. Cindy helping him out.
Starting to line up all the boats for a "boat race." A bit OCD, I believe! Or maybe just G/T?
"Check out all these boats, Mom!"
There was a swimming pool full of shaving cream, and Lane made a beard!
The cutest part was the "kid car wash!" Lane loved running through it!
Eating a popsicle with his classmates.
Fake/Awkward smile phase!
Lane's little 2 year old class. A few kids were absent that day, I think.
L to R: Ms. Amy, Finn, Avery, Stone, Elizabeth, Vivian, Quinn, Lane, Devon, Taylor, Ms. Cindy.
Missing were: Christian and Maddie.
I ran to pick up the pizzas for the school while the teachers got the kids dried off and changed into their clothes. Then, it was party time!
After pizza, his teachers had an ice cream sundae bar!
Lane opted for plain vanilla with a side of M&M's. He said to his teachers "I don't really like sprinklers." (Sprinkles...)
My cute boy with his teachers. Amy on the left and Cindy on the right. They commented on his sweet smile, bright eyes and lashes, and his outstanding vocabulary. They said he loved to tell them stories and had a great memory. He has grown so much this year!
Here are Lane's last day of school pictures I took on our porch. He has hardly any "baby" left in his face! A lot of the funny poses were ALL on his own. I guess he was feeling like a model that day!
And here is the side by side of his first and last day of school. When I showed this to Kyle he didn't believe that the picture on the left was from this school year!!
Lane Austen, this year you have gone from a baby to a boy. You are smart as smart can be, hilarious and witty, can be such a sweetheart, and you are the absolute most handsome little boy I've ever seen. You are pretty close to perfect to us! (Let's just get past some of your terrible three's tendencies!) :)
