Well Zachary has finally completed elementary school! He is sooo excited to be going to middle school next year. So by way of tradition the school had a Graduation Ceremony for them. It was fun to watch Zach sing and sit with his classmates awaiting his name to be called to come and receive his diploma.
Here he is waiting with his classmates for the program to start.
Ahhhhh there's that no pressure smile we know so well!
I was really impressed with the diplomas they gave them, it was very official looking, something we'll treasure always. Zach looked so handsome in his cap and gown picture! Great Job Zachary we love you !

In honor of the end of school the 2nd grade class had a Picnic with Parents activity planned. We were invited to come have lunch with him and stay for some games and just play. Parker was really excited about it, especially since he got to have hotdogs, chips, and watermelon for lunch.

Mason has LOVED preschool this year for two reasons: 1) It is the last year he is going (because of a late birthday), and 2) Because he has been learning his letters, numbers, and writing his name! We were apart of a preschool co-op again this year.
Here he is with his classmates, Brennan Andrews, Collin Pett, Ella Roetto, Lily Ashby, and Cole Baumgartner.

Zachary had to complete a state report for his 5th grade class, he was excited he was able to choose his own state, he chose Utah! I was curious why, but he had some great ideas so I was happy to see him so motivated.
They had 2 months to work on the project but had weekly goals to complete. At first it was mostly reports and paper work type assignments. The big one was the 3D model that represented the state. So here are some photos of the prep work.
Here is the mountain slope that will be a ski run. First the shape and then paper mache...
Their goal of the project was to convince President Obama to relocate to their state. He had to give an oral report in front of a teacher from Columbia High School to present his state and convince him it was a great place to relocate. Only 6 kids could compete at this level, Zachary was one of them. The other competing states were Massachusetts, Indiana, Idaho, Montana, and Hawaii. He did such an amazing job he won first place!
Here he is with his teacher Mrs. Wang,
This is his prize...
He did an amazing job! We are very proud of him, even though there was a couple of late nights, it all paid off! Congrats Zachary *smile*
