The "Official" End of our School Year

While we wrapped up our homeschool year lesson-wise on May 30th, our year with our homeschool group didn't officially wrap up until this past Friday at our annual Field Day and Yearbook Release Party.  We had been looking forward to this day for quite a while and it did not disappoint!  

Well over 50 kiddos from our group and their families turned out for some good ol' outdoor fun--you know, the relay race-type-of-fun!  

It was a great way to finish up our year and get to hang out with friends--some of whom are moving away this summer.  

At the end of the games  one team was awarded a Good Sportsmanship Award.  We were grouped by PreK/K5, 1st-3rd, 4th-6th, and 7th-12th.  Each age group competed amongst itself.  And each team was awarded with a very nice participation medal.  My kids were so proud of their medals!  They had a total blast!

And before everyone headed home we rounded out Field Day with picnic lunches and the distribution of our new yearbook.  My hubby and I were the yearbook sponsors this year so we were excited about this, too!  Our yearbook club students chose a very fun theme for the book: "Sweet, Sweet Memories" and candy was the fun motif throughout the book.  This was our second year to be the yearbook sponsors and it is a big job ....one that I was happy to have checked off for this year :)  But it is fun and our yearbook club students were lots of fun to work with!  

{edited 7/3/14}: We have used UBuildABook.com for the past two years for our yearbooks and have really been pleased with both the books and their customer service.  We have not found a company that can beat their price.

So I feel like the 2013/2014 school year is officially over.  My kiddos have completed their required school days and school work. The yearbook is completed and handed out.  We've had our final activity for this school year with our homeschool group.  And I have completed my term with our homeschool group's steering committee.  

2013/2014 was a good school year!  I'm ready to enjoy summer now!  

How about you?  Are you finished with school for the summer?  Are you continuing with school through the summer?  I'd love to hear from you!
