The kids arrived home from school at their 3:20 time. Jake ran off the bus to me and jumped up to give me a giant hug because he was so excited for the last day. We were spinning around with excitement over the beginning of summer.
I looked up to see Maddie dragging herself down the street and crying. I thought she had a headache and felt bad that it had happened on the last day when it was supposed to be such a fun day. But nope. I asked what was wrong and she said she missed her friends. School got out at 3:10. It had been 10 minutes.
I think we have officially started into those tween years I've heard so much about.
