I didn't take any photos today, we had a pretty slow, down day since we were all out so late and had had such a super busy day on Saturday.
So, here are photos from Matthew's 6th grade graduation on the last day of school in May.
He received his certificate from the Principal and was looking at it. Then his fist came up for a fist pump! LOL!

With his teacher...

With his friend!

Last day of 6th grade...

Last day of 11th grade...

Then we had cake! :)

Saturday, Matthew had his end of Special Olympics Swim Season swim/pizza party. He went straight to the slides and went down the green one 1st. It's the fast one and I don't think he was expecting that! LOL! He came out with the "what just happened" look on his face!

Then he decided some pizza would be a better idea, so off we went.

After pizza, his friends arrived and he got brave enough to go to the slides again - LOL - but this time the blue one!

He did get brave enough to go on the green one again. He also challenged some of the coaches to swim races...
That night, we split up. I took Grandma and Grammie and we went to Ryan's Marching Band competition...
They took 1st place in their Division and all 5 captions.

Matthew and Michael went to the Coyotes game with friends and had a great time!

We tried to go to the football game to watch Ryan march in the halftime show tonight, but it wasn't meant to be. We got there a half an hour late and the line was still at least 20 minutes long to get in. There were 8 minutes until halftime, so we went to plan B, Dairy Queen for ice cream!

Tonight we picked up Grammie at the airport for a visit! Matthew is very happy to see her!

Today we met Matthew's new ST for the 1st time. I think he's only had 2 ST's (this makes the 3rd) and (I think) only 3 OT's  in his 13 years. We are lucky ducks.
It's super duper hard to say goodbye to Miss Adrian. 10 years is a long time - she is a part of the family and we are a part of her's. So - it was just a see ya soon, but still!

So the old and the new ST played a super cute game with Matthew today - something with chickens. I forgot the name...

I'm sure I have an earlier yet photo of the 2 of them, but I'm too lazy to go search for it. This is from 2005. (cut out from a scrapbook page)
Here they are today! He adores her (as do we!)

I thought I'd show a couple of closeups of his bag. Can you see the straight seams? There are 3 pockets on the outside and 3 on the inside.

Today, Matthew brought home the string bag that he made in his Family and Consumer Science class. It is so nicely done!  The stitches are so straight and even! The teacher has been updating us on his progress when she sees us. She kept telling us what a good job he's doing on the bag and now having seen it,  she's right!

Monday, Monday....
After school today, Matthew had OT with Miss Lynnette. She has a student shadowing her for the next while, so we met her today.
First they worked on the cursive handwriting. Miss Lynnette has an app that helps with shaping the letters.

Then he did some weaving on a cute spider.
After dinner, we took a golf cart ride up to the greenbelt where Matthew and his daddy threw a football around a little bit...
Then we're off to get ready for bed...

We are all just kinda tuckered out today! It was a bit cloudy and has rained a little bit here and there today, but the big news is that it was in the low 90's!
We did go out to get a Ted's Hot Dog about mid afternoon!

Saturday was another busy day! We were all up by 5:30am. Ryan was at school by 6am for an JrROTC event. Then he shifted inbetween Band practice and JrROTC while they overlapped for some time.

Matthew was supposed to have Special Oylmpics swim practice, but with the tournament, we had to miss.
We got Matthew to school by 7:15am to leave for his tournament. He rode the bus and we went in our car. The other team had a game at 8am and his team was at 9am, so we watched the game before theirs 1st and then they played. They won the 1st game but lost the 2nd. Semi-finalists are still a pretty good title to hold!

The 1st game was a really close game and he did sit on the bench.

He played some in the 2nd game, but missed his shots that he took - they hit the rim :(

After the games, Matthew, Michael and I went to eat at Applebees.

I left after that and met up with Ryan back at school, where they were loading up and getting ready to leave for the 1st competition of the year.

They performed at 6pm and then we sat in the stands and watched the last bands perform until the awards were held at 9:15pm.

They ended up taking 1st place in Division II and all 5 of the Captions! Go Band!
