Bug Party (aka Last Day of Second Grade)

Today was Ryan's last day of second grade...sigh...My little boy is going into third grade next year - YIKES!
The entire second grade class (all 200 of them) had an end of the year "bug party." I took Ryan to school this morning and joined a few other moms in the workroom to help set up for the party. After that, I went home and picked up the three girls and brought them over to the school.

Unfortunately, Emma was complaining because she wanted to eat their food and play their games and Avery was whining about how exhausted she was so we weren't able to stay and watch for very long.

They had various stations set up around the back of the school and were able to autograph a banner for next year's incoming second grade class, decorate autograph books, color with chalk, go on a bug hunt, play "Buzz, Buzz, Sting" (similar to "Duck, Duck, Goose"), create a spider web and munch on bug cookies, candy and sandwiches.

Ryan playing "Tic, Tac, Toe" with a classmate. Of course my son was the only one who insisted on wearing his safari hat from the zoo. What can you do!?! The tacky tourist is just dying to be released at every opportunity!

He had a great time and when he arrived home from his busy day he announced, "It was the best day ever!"

If only every school day could be the last day of school. Something to ponder. Not really.
