On May 18, 2015, our school year ended when Mitchell turned in his math test. I snapped a few photos to commemorate the day.

But first, here’s a look back at the beginning of the year:

last day

May 18, 2015. Older and wiser?

(I was in such a hurry to snap the photo before Lauren left for work, that I forgot to get Matthew! Oops.)

And now, we celebrate!


The last few weeks of our school year were the most challenging. We dealt with illness and lots of outside obligations which forced me to be flexible with my school schedule (something that is hard for me to do). There were times when I just wanted to call an audible and wrap the year up about three weeks early. I’m glad I didn’t do that, though. It was good for us to tackle our studies in the midst of minor chaos. That was a lesson in “character” for all of us, something that isn’t in our textbooks.


I praise the Lord for helping me and my children get through another school year. I also appreciate my husband’s kind “sanity support” and his financial contributions. 😉

Three cheers for summer break!

    Now that’s an impressive stack of work! All of you should feel very satisfied to have worked so hard and accomplished so much! I am very proud of your diligence. I like your first day-last day of school tradition. It is quite revealing to see those photos side-by-side.
    I love you.
