Last Day of school for the 2016-2017 school year

You all know I wouldn't have remembered to take last day of school pictures on my own. But thanks to my always-on-the-ball friends, I snapped a few.

First day for Camille . . .

I didn't think to take a picture of Camille by our front door on the morning of her last day, but I did get her to pose with her wonderful teachers before she walked out of that classroom door for the last time. Thanks to my friend, Wendi, that is. Because I didn't even bring my phone into school at pick up on Thursday. How I blogged each month's milestones for both girls from age 0-2 years I will never know. I've lost some brain cells since then. 
Clara's school doesn't break for summer (boo!), but for comparison sake and to see how much she's grown over a typical school year, I snapped a few of her on her "last day."

(Her school operates year round and is only closed on major business holidays.)

"First day" for Clara . . . 
"Last day" for Clara . . And yes, there are stains all over her clothes because again, didn't think to do this until after pick up on Thursday. Ain't nobody got time for changing clothes for a two second picture. :)
Both Clara and Camille have grown by leaps and bounds this year and have been blessed with amazing, caring, and intentional teachers/therapists. Thankful just doesn't cut it.

Summertime her we come!

Well, sort of. :)


  1. I don't think my mom ever took last day of school pics when I was growing up, and I haven't suffered too much ;) but good thing you got a couple this year, just in case, ha!

  2. Allison's wrong- we cry nightly because our mom didn't take last day of school pictures. In fact, it's the only reason I went to counseling a few months back ;)

    But seriously, both of the girls look so grown up in their recent pics- it blows my mind how much kids change in such a short amount of time!

  3. Ugh I always miss out on stuff like this because Millie goes to daycare year round, with no real start or finish. I need to remember to just pick a day and do it!! Haha. Then again, it might make me sad to see how much she's grown!!! Luckily your girls just keep getting cuter!
