A new graduate!

If his mom hadn't been such a slacker, you would have found out weeks ago: Simon is a new "Western Academy of Beijing Fifth Grade Graduate"! Woohoo. The blue t-shirt (and some academic credit) is proof: Next year Simon is going to Middle School.
As parents, we were treated to a nice assembly, where we reviewed the fifth grade accomplishments this year (camp...some school work...personal project, and.. oh another camp). Afterwards we had a good lunch in the gym (now, that is a reason to go to the gym!), at which we as parents all congratulated ourselves with getting the kids this far without us getting any older. :)

(Hhm, not the best picture quality, is it?)
Simon and his friends--some other successful graduates, woohoo!
Never to old for balloons!

In het Nederlands: Simon heeft onlangs z'n Fifth Grade afgemaakt en rond daarmee de Elementary School (basisschool) hier af. Volgend jaar gaat hij dan naar Middle School (en over drie jaar naar High School). Felicitaties!
