Last Days of School

It's been a whirlwind this past month and just so much to process in a short amount of time. I didn't want to forget the last month of our stay in Ireland so I am writing now to catch up on time passed.
During the last week of school they had a "leaving assembly" where they recognize the Primary 7 students who are leaving primary school and entering secondary school. During this assembly the principal also recognized Ian, Gabe, and Avery and told them how much they loved having them a part of Knockbreda Primary school this year and presented each of them with a dictionary so that they could remember how to spell words the "proper" way. My kids were thrilled with the gift and came home after school and read their dictionaries.
The last day of school was difficult. Avery especially made a close girl friends and it was hard for her to say good-bye to her friends and teachers.
I couldn't have asked for better teachers suited for my kids. Mrs. Grant and Gabe hit it off beautifully. Gabe shed a few tears when trying to say good-bye. Mrs. Grant will be missed by the Quinlan family.
Roy, a.k.a. "The Lollipop Man", was our faithful crossing guard through the year. He always had a smile and a friendly word. The kids loved him. We will miss Roy.
