Eden had a great second grade year. She got the same teacher Maya had for 1st and 2nd grade. We know Mrs. Spear very well and we love her so much! Saying goodbye to her was very hard on all of us.
All six of the second grade classes at Eden's school went on an end of the year field trip to watch "Alice in Wonderland" and then headed over to Manito Gardens (an amazing garden in the middle of our city" for the rest of the day.
Right before school ended the 2nd graders put on a play/musical "Save the Plants". Maya did the same play so I have the songs burned in my brain for all times...nothin' like having "photosynthesis" stuck on repeat in my head.
Well Miss Edee was Aphid #1 and a narrator.
She was so cute! She had her part memorized for weeks. She learned all the songs when Maya did it so she was totally prepared.
The last couple weeks were hard on Eden because Maya was getting a ton of attention from us and everyone else...as do all fifth graders who are leaving the elementary and moving on to the big Jr. High. Maya has also had field trips, field days, dance recitals and fifth grade celebrations that have been occupying a lot of my time. Being the middle child really stinks sometimes and requires some pretty thick skin. I just hope Eden isn't scarred for life because of the emotional neglect she has received the past couple of weeks.

Eden did get some attention, I took her to Kate's baptism...these girlies have been friends since they were in "the womb".
Eden also did a great job on her piano piece at the recital. She pretty much rocked second grade and is more than ready for third.
