I can't believe that this school year is over. I am not sure where all of the time went. I can look back and remember each season, football game, field-trip, teacher workday, choir performance but it is hard to believe that it is all behind us now. I love summer and count down the days until it gets here. This year is bitter sweet. Another one graduates. I like the slow pace of summer. I love family game night and movie night. I like a little time with nothing to do. This summer will be different, busier than ever. #1 is moving into an apartment when she goes back to school so I am going to be busy looking for things for her. We have some furniture we are giving her and it is going to need to be painted. I have some things I want to make...pillows, lampshades, upholster a bulletin board and so on. Sounds like a whole lot of crafting to me!! #2 will be in a dorm and somehow, I seem to make that a summer project as well. Things have to be just right, you know. If it's not cute, then I not satisfied :). She and her roommate are looking at comforters at Anthropology, but haven't made up their mind yet. They haven't graduated from highschool YET and I think I am behind. (Yep, that's me. I am not sure if I am a micro manager, worrier or just organized. I don't like to wait to the last minute (month) to do things. I like to plan, make lists and go for it. I even (don't hate me) started talking about Christmas lists yesterday.)
I take a picture of the princesses on the first and last day of school. I even had #1 take a picture of herself on her first day of class and UNC, but I missed the last day. I guess I am going to have to let that tradition go. It is a little harder when they are in college! I love looking back and comparing the changes.
#3 on her first day of middle school
#3's school had awards day yesterday. I am proud to say that she was one of the few that made the A Honor Roll. Her total average for the year was a 97.5. That's not bad, is it?
She also received the Sixth Grade Physical Education Award from the PE teacher.
So I guess that means that she is smart AND can run fast! Ha!
(We are very proud. We take a lot of pride in our girls being very active and committed to a sport.)
Last Day of School!
(all the seniors wore their college shirts)
We have a few graduation parties to go to this weekend and then a lot of yard work planned. It has been rainy so the weeds are taking over the flower beds!! I also have some planting to do.....again. The deer have treated my flower beds like a salad bar and I am furious....... more on that later.
I am in the middle of a war!
