Memorial Day 2010



I am finding it hard to believe that Memorial Day Weekend is here already! As we officially celebrate the start of the summer, let's take a few moments to remember why we really have a long weekend of celebration. Think about all people who have helped us gain and maintain our freedom.

Graduation Time!!!!

Ben officially graduated from Westshore last night! The ceremonies were held inside (thankfully) at the King Center in Melbourne. There were only 133 graduates this year, but what a group of talented young adults. Ben has gone through Westshore for the past 6 years (it is a junior/senior high school) and has made some lifelong friendships. It has been such a joy to see them go from green, timid 7th graders to outspoken, fun-loving young adults. It seems that this year I know so many graduating seniors at at least 4 different local schools. WOW, if this doesn't make me feel old~~but wait, I don't feel old, just very proud!
HATS OFF to all the young adults that are graduating this year, and a ginormous HUG to those proud moms and dads who have helped their children achieve this goal!!!!

Final Field Trip

Today was our last field trip of the year. We went to one of the local supermarkets (Publix) to see what happens behind the scenes so that we can all get our shopping done! Our students had so much fun learning to make a bouquet of flowers, see where the gigantic walk-in refridgerators were so that milk, eggs, yogurt and other fun things are stocked, learned how they core and cut pineapples for people to buy, saw how cold cuts and cheese are prepared for sub sandwiches, saw the meat-guys packaging yummy steaks, watched the bakery lady decorate some cakes, and then we finally got to decorate our own cookies in a special room where we could see everything happening in the store below us! My friend and teammate LOVES...LOVES...LOVES Publix frosting (and we have to buy it by the tub for her) so she took advantage of the opportunity to sample some while we were decorating cookies!
My class has been so fortunate to be able to go with the other VPK classes on one fieldtrip experience each month ( we call them Field Trip Fridays). We have learned so much about special places in our community this way.
