It was our last Knick Awards Assembly and it definitely brought many tears to my eyes. It has been such an amazing 4 years at Knick and we are sad to leave.
Congrats to Mr. V on his retirement. He has been a great teacher and role model for our kids. They love gym class.
Words can not express how thrilled we are that both of our kids received the best awards of the day. Leah was given the award for having a 90%+ average in Math and Reading for all 4 quarters. Yay Bean. Many of Leah's friends were given this award too. Congrats to Teagan, Cooper, Emma and Steven.
Seth was given the award for having a 90%+ average in Math, ELA, Social Studies AND Science for all 4 quarters. Quadruple yay and I definitely shed some tears upon finding out this information. As we watched the other students who received this award we felt extra amazed because all of Seth's best buddies received the same award. This means that he has smart, athletic and well rounded friends and from a parents point of view we are thrilled. Congrats to Maya, Evan, Tanner, Devin and Parker for being super duper smart kids and great friends.
We also found out last night from Coach V that Seth accumulated 165 miles this school year for Mighty Milers and was the Top Runner at Knick.
I'm feeling beyond proud of our amazing kids and their amazing friends.
It is so hard to believe that the school year is over once again. This year flew by extra quick because both kids were in the same school (yay) and we have been crazy busy selling and building. It was a fantastic year for both kids in school and we are so proud of them.
3rd and now onto 4th
Kindergarten and now onto 1st grade
Farewell Knickerbocker and Mr. V, you will both me missed like crazy. Such an excellent school and coach.
It's that time of year again...strawberry picking time. I have been going strawberry picking with my mom for as long as I can remember during the last week of school. This year brought my thoughts back to last year and for a minute I shed a tear. One year ago our besties left and I remember picking strawberries the day after they left last year and crying all the while. At least we have one year down and only two to go until they return.
We all had tons of fun as usual and got lots of red juicy berries. I'm sure you can guess what dessert was last night.
We stopped up to the house after berry picking to find out that the sand had been delivered for the garage and porch fill. Our contractor was still there and told me it took 26 dump truck loads of sand. Yikes. It's getting very exciting.
The kids didn't want to leave, they were playing hide and seek. Priceless.
Seth and Leah have loved their time with Mr. V as their gym teacher, but sadly he is retiring and they are switching schools. Today all the kids at Knick were asked to wear sporty clothes in his honor. All of the Watertown FC players wore their uniforms and Leah wore her favorite soccer t-shirt. They looks stinking cute.
Almost all of the exterior walls are up minus the family room because it has higher ceilings so it will require higher walls. Some of the interior walls are up and what isn't up is framed out on the floor. It is such an interesting process.
Living room walls are not up quite yet, but maybe today.
Last night on our family bike ride we had the most interesting experience. The kids were stopped by the police for wearing their helmets and given certificates for free ice cream. It left such a great impression on the kids.
