We hadn’t been to the library playground in forever so we went today. We were the only ones there for quite some time and then two ladies showed up with two small kids. I didn’t pay much attention to them but Katie was playing with them and then I heard the boy call her Katie. In a tone like he knew her. And it turns out he did! It was the kids of an old neighbor (who is also a first grade teacher) who were there with their sitter (their aunt) and a friend.
This is the stuff I am really going to miss.
They wanted to run so off they went!
Katie was ahead the whole time but then stopped for some reason so he passed her and “won.”
I was in Owen’s room this morning and commented that I was impressed that he had made his bed. Oh…no, he says, he sleeps on top of the covers! Why? Because 1) he’s warm and 2) he doesn’t want to deal with pulling the sheet up (because it’s always totally kicked down to the bottom of the bed and he apparently has a huge problem fixing it). So I went to check on him tonight…and yep, on top of the covers, NOT in PJs (another thing he does even though we ask him not to), ab FD sucking his thumb!!!
And shall I add that it was cooked in bacon grease?!
Mine can! Here’s a Before & After teeth cleaning. The color looks exactly the same—I’m just missing a bit of gloss! I’m telling you LipSense is amazing.
Beginning and end of year:
A matching dress to my leggings! She LOVED it!!
We went to Occoquan to do some Pokemoning… It was like this the whole way there. What would normally be a 5-minute drive was 15.
I came up to the bedroom for a few minutes of alone time before the craziness of today’s party starts and this is what happened.
Fridays are sprit days at school. We don’t dress up for them unless it’s easy…and beach was super easy.
Yes, I said surprise. I had NO idea whatsoever—I just assumed they finished next week along with the rest of the school.
So, I dropped her off and a short while after I got home, I got a text from the class assistant (our friend) saying Whoops, they must have dropped the ball and forgot to send home the sheet about today being water day and could I bring a suit and towel for her. So I ran back to the school and dropped the stuff off and put her sunscreen on (they are not allowed to do it). Water day should have been my big clue since we also did it last year, but my brain is going in so many different directions that it didn’t even occur to me that water day was the last day of school. So I went to pick her up and saw her walking out with her art folder AND IT STILL DIDN’T HIT ME until the teacher said something about it being the last day and they enjoyed having Katie… Huh? What? Ahhhh, then it all became clear. Of course I was thinking WHAT THE HELL?!?! How could I not have known that today was the last day? Well, it wasn’t on the school calendar (and I live by my calendar). So I was bummed I didn’t have teacher gifts ready…so I will take them in Monday when I drop off some educational stuff for the classroom (donations as we purge).
