Ever since Alexis started kindergarten I had been dreading the junior high years. BFA was a great place for her to ease into her junior high experience. I love how small and intimate it was. We will really miss it. She made some amazing friends there and it was really hard for her to say goodbye.
|Gabby, Hannah, Alexis, and Katie. Katie and Gabby were Alexis's two best friends while at BFA. They had some great times together. Katie text Alexis the other day and said, "everything is falling apart without you here!"|

Katie and Gabby had a goodbye sleepover for Alexis right after school. Alexis (and I) were glad that she didn't have to say her goodbyes at school that day.
|Here are Tori and her best friend Julie the last day. These two were such good buddies and reminded me of myself and my best friend growing up, Mary Sue.|
|All of her classmates were so sweet all throughout the party. If they ever thought that she was about to leave they would run up to her and beg her not to leave.|
|Please don't go!|
|Tori felt very loved that day.|

She also had a goodbye sleepover with Julie a few days later, so it made her goodbyes a little easier that day.
Levi was a different story.
He too had a great time at his holiday party with his class. They played all sorts of fun games.

|Being a goofball during a game.|
|Snow ball fight with wadded up paper! A definite hit!|
|It was so fun to have Lyla visit for his party|
|Levi got to be the "Stat Student" since it was his last day.|
|Levi's teacher Ms. Whelan was outstanding. Tori had her as well when she was in second grade, so we got to know her well.|
|We ran in to one of his best friends Chase in the hall. These two boys had some good times together and Levi will really miss him. They shared the love of skateboarding and "colored pants" He was a good buddy to Levi|
Levi spent the rest of the day in my lap crying off and on. One of the hardest things about moving was taking our kids away from all of their friends, and family that were always near by. Luckily they are all making great new friends and thriving at their new schools; a definite answer to many prayers.
We will never forget BFA though.
