Here we are, the first day of July (how’d that happen?!) which means the kids have been out of school for a week-and-a-half. I know, I know – they do start later here on the Left Coast, which means school gets out later. But I digress.
It’s amazing how much growing happens during the school year – education-wise as well as actual growth. Princess Nagger has completed 6th Grade – which means she’s going to be in Jr. High next year. Gasp!
Princess Nagger has gotten taller – pretty soon she’s going to catch up to me, and I suspect she’ll end up taller than my 5’4″ self. Sheesh!
Little Dude has a ways to go before he gets there, but the boy is sure growing:
Notice he not only gained height, but glasses as well. And the shirt he wore on the first day of school is almost too small. Still looking for that pause button!
Next year I’m going to make sure I take their first day / last day pictures with the same camera. I suppose it goes right along with the excitement of a new school year utilizing the actual camera, compared to the final day of school where I simply whipped out my cell phone. Ahem.
We’ll see what kind of growth spurt they go through while enjoying the abundant sunshine of summer, shall we?
Next stop – 2nd Grade for Little Dude and 7th Grade for Princess Nagger. I think I’m gonna need more wine.
