Kindergarten Graduation

Last Friday was the last day of school and with it came Brice's Kindergarten Graduation.  He then talked us into checking him out of school and hanging out the rest of the day.  Since then, he has been to a Gwinnett Braves game, and gone to the pool twice.  Today we went like gangbusters all day long.  Both kids were up at 6:15am and didn't stop much (well, Anna did nap).  Let's see, we got up, did some laundry, worked on Brice's chore list (oh, yes, he has one), took Anna to swim lessons then went immediately to our pool for a couple of hours, came home and "rested" (I use this term loosely when it comes to Brice), read a chapter of Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone, went to Fed Ex to ship someone's forgotten sport coat, and then went to swim team practice for Brice.  For those of you counting, that is three pools in one day.  Now do you get my blog background?!  Tomorrow we are headed to the zoo to sweat it out with the animals.

But, here are the decent pictures from graduation.  All the other ones are pretty hazy with red eyes.  We weren't terribly close despite Robin and Larry getting there thirty minutes early to save seats.  I heard from another mom that someone came in two hours before and saved the first two rows...umm, rude!

 Walked across the stage to get his "diploma" and then dropped it right back in the basket!  He then asked where his actual diploma was before we were about to leave and his parapro said, "Oh, they were just rolled up sheets of paper."!  He did get a certificate which is hanging in his room right now!
