Last Day of (Home)school 2016!!

Friday, June 10th, was our last day of school for the 2015-2016 year!

We celebrated the completion of the kids last day and last assignments with a water balloon fight.

Baylor thinks he is one of the boys. Crazy dog!!

We were going to put a sprinkler under the trampoline, but the sprinkler wasn't working, so the kids took turns spraying each other with the water hose while the others jumped. 

 Baylor loves being sprayed and Faith thought it was more fun to spray him than her siblings. 

What a little beauty!!

Once Daddy got home, the kids presented their final projects to him.

The last six weeks of science this year we concentrated on the human body. Each kid made a life size body diagram. So for their group project, each child did a report on a body part. Faith told us about the heart:

Mig reported on the lungs:

Selah did an excellent report on the brain.

 Gabe modeled a brain cap for her to refer to as she presented her report.

Gabe's report was on cells and the difference between animal and plant cells. He used water balloons to represent the cell. The balloon is like the cell wall and the water is like the cytoplasm. 

Once the group projects were done, they each had an individual presentation. Faith recited her letters and how to spell her name. 

Mig read a book from front to back all by himself!

Selah presented a poetry book that she wrote.

Gabe made a power-point on the life and death of King Tut... 

Which included a choreographed dance to Steve Martin's King Tut in which Selah joined him.

After the presentations, Principal Daddy awarded them with their Certificates of Promotion.

Gabe is promoted to 6th Grade - a MIDDLE SCHOOLER!!

 Selah is promoted to 4th Grade.

Mig is promoted to 1st Grade.

 And Faith goes from "Preschool" to "Pre-Kindergarten".

I may be biased but I think I have the cutest and smartest class ever! (And the class pet is pretty cute, too.)

Principal Daddy and the kids.

What a full and success-"full" homeschool year!! We are now ready for the summer break and some rest!!
