Yes, school is out and little Miss Maddy successfully passed 2nd grade and on to 3rd grade in the fall! Wow -- that seems unreal -- 3rd grade, really?
[Holding up 3 fingers for 3rd grade!]
Second grade was a very big deal with so much to learn, so many skills to improve upon and master!
I admit it, at the beginning of the year, I was a little nervous about 2nd grade! So many prayers to learn, 38 Catechism Q&A's to memorize, the parts of the Mass, the Sacraments, all the preparation for First Confession and First Communion - plus the regular reading, writing, social studies, science, math, art, etc.! It was a little daunting for her (and me too)!
But she persevered and made it through handling it all with grace under pressure.
Good job Maddy -- we're so proud of you!
