End of the Year--Hyrum

 First grade is almost over, and this little guy has changed a lot this year. Here's how he looked when first grade started:
And here he is today:
This is his boreal forest diorama. He knew exactly how he wanted it to look, which trees and animals he wanted to do (pine, oak, wolf, deer snake--in the tree), and he did much of it by himself (except for the trees--Dad helped). His teacher commented to me that she could tell that Hyrum had done his own project and that she appreciated that.

Biggest achievement this year:

We waited all year for those front teeth to grow in.  I have never seen a kid whose teeth just refused to grow in. Now he's in that snaggle-tooth crazy teeth stage, and I smile every time I see it.

Can it be possible that my baby boy is done with first grade already? When did that happen?


  1. His teeth have grown in even since he's been here! Cute boy. :)

  2. Oh my goodness, how Hyrum has grown! But he still has that sparkle in his eyes - love it!
