It's been a BIG week for Katie.
Yesterday Firecracker made it into the 50 Point Club at school. That means she's earned over 50 AR points this year, and since nearly all the books she's read were worth 0.5 points each, it takes reading and taking little tests on over 100 books. (Over 100 because she misses a few questions here or there and doesn't always get the full 0.5 points.)
We didn't know until Firecracker had reached 50 points that she's the first kindergartener at her school to do that. She's known this day was coming for a couple weeks and was SUPER excited about it. We're proud of her for putting in so much work over the school year for this. We've tried to keep a constant supply of AR books on the shelf for her and she's just plugged away at them one by one.
And in other big news Alanna, Firecracker's birthmom, came for a visit with her husband (remember when we went to their wedding) while they're on their way through Washington headed for Alaska.
And then a week ago they had kindergarten graduation.
These are the lovely ladies that have been teaching Firecracker all year and who we made these for.
Our last day of school is tomorrow...Saturday...We're excited!
