Wrapping Up the School Year


Xin received the Coach's Cavalier Award for baseball

He also attended his first MS dance


The Varsity boys soccer team played at St. Simons Island in the state playoffs on Mother's Day so we were able to spend that weekend at the beach.


Julia's soccer team played and toured in the UK for 10 days
 Julia won "Man of the Match" one game





 Jaida "graduated" from the Lower School




Lulu's end of year party



The pool started to get very popular




We headed to the lake for Memorial Day


Sam and his best bud spent some days at the beach

All my chickadees in the nest!
Ahhhhh!

It was a good school year.
I was so proud of everyone and how hard they worked!
Lulu advanced 2 grade levels in reading and loved 1st grade!
Jaida got straight A's all year.
Xin also got all A's in his first year of Middle School.
Sam rocked his first year of high school earning all A's.
Julia did amazing in her first year of college making the Dean's List both semesters.
Love my kiddos and love that we will have all summer together!

A Few More Spring Things!

The First graders learned to play chess and then they had some fun tournaments against each other and then against some of the Upper School kids!
Look who Lulu got to play...Big brother!






Julia was invited to "Old South" weekend and had to borrow old prom dresses from my day because according to my sweet daughter "they look like those old fashion 1800's dresses" HA!


Just because these 2 furry friends always make me smile. Playing tug-o-war with poor Ducky!

Olympic Day at APDS is a super exciting time! The Lower School 1-4 graders compete in lots of different events and the points are added up to determine the winning team. Graciously they put all siblings on the SAME team! Whew!
The 4th graders take the competition quite seriously and the 1st graders...not so much!
SO much fun to watch!


 Jaida got selected to carry the Olympic flag.
 






















Then I got to take my two favorite Olympians out to lunch at Waffle House!
3rd Place for Team Blue
