 I'm showing this picture first because it sums up the last day of Kindergarten! Autographed bucket-heads!

This is the tag that is flipped over in the picture.

We spent part of the morning autographing buckets!

I also made photo/ autograph books for each child with pictures 
from the school year. So Fun!

We played Beach Blanket Sight Word Bingo with 
"Smarties" for markers and had ice cream sundaes. Yum!

What's a last day of kinder with out a little water fun?
We did water races, water balloon toss 
and a from the knees down water balloon fight!

A dear friend grandmother of Violet and amazing retired Kindergarten teacher Pam Peters made these darling t-shirts with my Kiddos to wear on the last day!
Happy Summer Friends!
