The girls have a token last half day of school tomorrow and then we’re done. I was just remembering C’s first day of Kindergarten, particularly the look on her face when we left her at the classroom that first morning. Sort of like a deer in headlights, but we couldn’t have asked for a better Kindergarten year and now we have a first and third grader in the house. Crazy! But just as well since Claudine’s pretty much abolished anything she thinks is “babyish” from her possessions. Why do they want to grow up so fast? Have I told you that the tooth fairy has been busy at our house? I don’t think I have. But Claudine wasn’t too excited about the tooth fairy because “all she brings you is money” (not that she refused the money when it was left under her pillow both times). She did build the coolest little container for her tooth using legos. It had clear blocks as a little window so that she could look at her tooth without taking it out.
So summer vacation starts. Hours reading books, playing with legos, building forts and getting wet under playground sprinklers. Camp. More Sunday outings. Our annual trip to the NW. I like summer. What do you have planned for yours?
