End of K & 3rd Grade

Another year has come and gone. I feel like I was just taking their "1st day of school" pictures on the front steps and dropping my little guy off for his first day of K with tears in my eyes.

The boys rocked this school year. They did so amazing and we couldn't be more proud! They also had super teachers this year! 

Carter adjusted very well to school, and excelled beyond our expectations. He is reading well above grade level, but the most impressive thing is that he comprehends it! On his final report card, he received 4s (above grade level) in Math and Reading with 3s (at grade level) on everything else.

That's my kid rocking his shorts on backwards, grabbing his "area," and picking
his nose during his end-of year performance. Future star, I tell you!

 Landon matured a ton this year. He is definitely not the same boy he was back in August when he first started 3rd grade. He's a super cool kid with lots of friends and SO smart. Personality, looks, and the brains - triple threat! He finished with 4s in Math and Art, with 3s in the rest of his subjects. (He has gotten a 4 in Art every year; not sure where he got that talent from!) He did well on his very first EOG (end-of-grade tests) and MADE IT INTO THE AIG (Academically and Intellectually Gifted) PROGRAM FOR MATH!!! Here were the requirements for getting into the AIG program: he had to take a test and only the top 95th percentile (nationally) got to take a 2nd test, he took the 2nd test and only the top 95th percentile (nationally) got to take a 3rd test, he took the 3rd test and only the top 95th percentile (nationally) got to be considered for the program. They reviewed his entire school portfolio; test scores, grades, school work, teacher comments, parent comments, etc. And he made it in for Math!!! He was juuuuuuust under for Reading. We are so proud, but most importantly, he is proud of himself. The AIG program starts next school year and I think he's going to have a lot of fun with it. The boy LOVES Math.

We feel so blessed to have such well-mannered children who do great in school and actually care about their schoolwork and desire to do well. You rocked the 2014-2015 school year boys. Now go enjoy your summers!
