Summer vacation is winding down for us. The kids start school in 2 days. I'm happy and sad at the same time.
We had the meet and greet at school with their teachers last night. Ben has the same teacher as she moved from 1st to 2nd grade this year and took her whole class with her. She's a great teacher, so we are thrilled that he will have her again this year. Emily got the teacher we were hoping for, Mrs. Jackson. She's our friends all time favorite teacher, so you know she's great. Her room was well organized and she seemed so on top of things. I look forward to another great year.
Noah doesn't start preschool until after Labor Day, so we'll have a month before he goes. Will I be sad? Maybe a little, but M, W, F from 8:30-11:15 is not a lot of time. I have BIG plans for that 2 hours and 45 glorious kid free minutes. Well, the plan is working out, grocery shopping, volunteering at the school and working. The glorious part is that it will be kid free.
Today, we decided to end the summer with our fun filled Friday's. We started at the tennis courts. Tennis, basketball, stomp rockets, hoola hoop.
And when the kids got bored with that they did cheer.
And played swords.
Then, we hit the pool for 90 minutes. It was a great ending to a really great summer. My kids are tan. Their hair is streaked with blonde from the sun and I know they have loads of memories from the past two months.
We are ready to start a new school year!
