100% Attendance

At the beginning of this year both Jared and Seth set a goal to have 100% attendance at school. I am so pleased with them and their determination. There were a few times during the course of the year where it really would have been convenient to skip the last hour or two of school for some trips we made or other kinds of things we were involved in but as a family we wanted to support them. They both accomplished this goal and had a fantastic year of learning and growth. Yesterday they got to be acknowledged in an assembly and received a certificate and a Walkman (I didn't even know they had them any more). They were rightfully excited by that. So now we are looking forward to a fun and exciting summer. I love having my kids at home with me and look forward to the freedom of not being on the schools schedule. Sadly enough it will all go to quickly and then I will eventually send three kids off to school in the up coming school year. They grow so quickly.

That's seriously awesome!! Not one single year while I was in school did I have perfect attendance. Not one! That's very impressive!

I was hoping that Elizabeth would be able to go every day, but she missed 7 days because she got sick several times. =(
Good job for them! Hope you guys enjoy your summer!
