Goodbye 2nd Grade//Hello Summer

As a kid, a teacher and a Momma, the end of the school year is my favorite! It’s so exciting and full of FUN! The hard work from the year has paid off and lots of memories are made.
Quinn had a truly amazing second grade year…and the end of the year made it even better. Take a peek at our end of Second Grade wrap up!

May Fun Day fun…the whole PoeFam got to be there to play and celebrate.

I was beyond impressed with how they did learning at the end of the year. The whole room was transformed into Camp Learn-a-Lot. They had a different learning theme each day (dinosaurs, pirates, etc.) and all of the activities were completed in tents with their team. It was so precious and Quinn so looked forward to each day!

The boys were looking forward to their Summer Kick-Off Breakfast…complete with everything they’d chosen off of the menu, Bingo and prizes!…

They had specifically requested that Momma cross-stitch them something since I had done Bliss a Tinkerbell. Q wanted Iron Man and Nash wanted Rocket Raccoon…so I put them on bookmarks and they won them (along with new books) for their Bingo prizes.

Summer has officially begun at our house and I couldn’t be happier to have all of my loves all to myself for the next three months!

{Bliss’ First Birthday Party}

BABY BLISS 1 INVITEedit
Exactly a week after my sweet Bliss turned one, I got the privilege of throwing her the most fun First Birthday Party. It still doesn’t seem real that I get to plan a GIRLY party…and I had more fun getting her Paper Doll Party just right. After her paper doll was created, I couldn’t wait to find other sweet things to add to the d├ęcor. I was happy with how girly sweet it all was for her big day…

And, how could I throw a girly party without the amazing cookies created by Sweet Face Sugar Shop. If you’ve never used them to wow your party guests, your next party is the time. They taste amazing and are true works of art. And, she’ll ship anywhere!
