Friday was our last day of school but also Ty's last day in elementary school. They had the traditional clap-out ceremony at the end of the day. All the students and parents line the hallway and the 6th graders parade through to applause, balloons, music, flowers.

It was very emotional! My baby...all my babies are growing up. I do not have any kiddos in grade school anymore.

Anyway, I was ok until I started noticing some of the kiddos were crying. It is hard leaving grade school for big, bad junior high! And Ty was struggling with holding back tears too, that's when I really lost it.
Here are a couple pics.

What a great tradition! I'm guessing you weren't alone with losing it. (((Cat)))

Super photos. Everyone looks great. Sweet tradition and hard to watch them change and evolve.

I was super friggin' excited when my kids got out of elementary school. :lol:

Wish they did something like that here. So special. Congrats to Ty.

Oh and they did something new this year. They had the high school graduates who went to school at this elementary lead the procession. Graduation was last week but they were in full cap and gown. I thought that was pretty neat.

I thought they were maybe the first HS graduates that had attended there, it is a fairly new school. But that can't be right because Evan started 3rd grade there, and he will be a Senior this next year, so they had to have started 4th grade there.

I hope they continue that part of the tradition. Pretty neat.

These are in our favorite spot, difficult to get into/out from but oh so worth it. That is Cloud Peak in the first one, still lots of snowpack. Fishing was not great, the fish are still eating quite well on the run-off.

Then a few of the most hairy spot coming out, there is a drop off and one lane, rock strewn road. I always hold my breath until we are down it. But the view! And Meadowlark lake again, you can see some of the ski slopes from here.

These are of a new area we explored. Took a hike to West Tensleep Falls and at the end, it opened up into the meadow, I think it is called Bear Park. You can see a storm is coming, so we did not continue past the meadow. We almost made it back to the pickup before it started raining!

Ali took this one of this little chipmunk guy. This was at Meadowlark, he ran right up, 2 ft from us and munched down on the dandelion. She named him Alvin. ;-D
