June 19, 2015 - Hello, Again / School's Out Part 2

And then it was Noah's turn to finish up his school year.  This was Noah's third year at Nordic School.   He actually could stay for one more year since he can't start kindergarten until 2016, but we realized that he is ready for a change (and, frankly, so are we).  So he "graduated" from Nordic instead and we won't be at that school anymore next year.  We had a great 3 1/2 years there for the most part and have a lot of fond memories.  He took the news of this transition well and has already started summer camp at his new school, Reader Rabbits.  We're on Day 4, and so far so good.  And we're also happy that one of his good friends from Nordic will also be at his new school in August.  

But to finish up at Nordic School, Noah was all smiles.  He is really a sweet, happy kid and had a great last day in the Nordic community.

The ceremony, where departing children receive a Nordic School medal and a book of pictures from their classmates.  This is a very special tradition that all children look forward to.

We were so grateful this year that there was a male teacher in Noah's class. Rasmus and Noah had a great bond and I think will miss each other.

Cheers to Noah!
