As cliche as it sounds, it seems like yesterday that we were loading up this little one for his first day of first grade! Yesterday ended a first place year in first grade and we rang in summer in style.
The PCP was barraged by silly string as he exited the school bus and Mr. R bellowed “Haaaaaaave a grrrrrrrrreat summer!!! See y’all next yeeeeeeeeear!”
It was a big year for John and, just like in Kindergarten, he kicked off summer by making his way through his very own “walk of fame!” I picked his top ten accomplishments for the year and staked them right in the yard on a path leading from the bus stop to the porch. (Please excuse the painters in the background.)
He paused at every single one, to read and remember. I could literally see his smile grow and his chest puff with a sense of accomplishment as he made his way through.
A simple snack awaited on the porch.
And the cherry on top? After a loooong last day of school nap on the sofa, our pool season kicked off with an ice cream party!!!!
Summer is finally here, y’all!
