It’s almost hard to believe that another school year has come to a close. Every one passes faster than the last. A skeleton crew of the elementary aged kids arrived home to find the usual ambush of silly string, water guns and popsicles! Would you believe that we are missing FIVE more boys (plus one pre-school aged little brother) from our usual bus stop crew in this picture?!
We’ve celebrated a LOT of things over the years, but the last day of school Walk of Fame is my most favorite of all. It’s not elaborate or expensive, but it makes me happier, prouder and more excited than any of the others and is a small thing to remind the boys of how much we love them and just how proud we are of them. I line the driveway or sidewalk with signs touting their accomplishments, both in and out of the classroom, from the past year.
I did Whit’s along the left side and John’s along the right this year.
Here’s a little recap of an incredible SEVENTH and FOURTH grade year for my two favorite kids in the world.
With that, we are well on our way to settling into a summer routine. Whit is off to swim team in the mornings, while John sleeps until lunch. The seem to alternate late afternoons between baseball and lacrosse practices. I am so thankful that my work allows me to be home with them every single day this summer. With a rising 8th grader in the house, I’m trying to live in the moment of THIS summer rather than think about how few we have left.
We have no plans this holiday weekend. I hope you and yours enjoy lots of sun and fun!
