That's it...the school year is finally over!
There wasn't really any screaming or yahooing when the kids got home this afternoon - but there weren't any tears either (which is exactly what happened last year three minutes after Maddie got off the bus).
We started the summer off right by setting up our "sundae bar" and enjoying a delicious dessert after dinner. We went for a walk and followed it up by playing a game of "Apples to Apples" and laughed a lot.
They tried their best to fit everything fun into one night and suggested they stay up later than the 9pm we told them summer held for them. They also lost out on having their own slumber party. We told them that doing everything fun in one night would make the rest of summer so boring.
We sent them to bed with the thrilling news that they would each be spending quite a bit of time with me sorting clothes tomorrow for the garage sale next week.
Wait until we tell them that Thursday involves sorting toys for the same thing. They thought they didn't have any homework this summer....
