We're almost there... I can see the finish line... but right now exhaustion is at an all time high. Scott and I are dazed with end of the year duties. Mine as room parent and a mommy, his as a principal.
Anna and a special friend this year. They are as different as Tarzan and Jane. But I love them together. Friendship and kindness is all that matters. Anna in her white eyelet dress and Haley with her sprayed hair :) Here they are at the Fun Fair... I was busy of course running the Kindergarten booth so I only got two shots.
And it doesn't help that everyone in our families has a birthday between Mother's Day and the end of the school year. Almost all of the cousins, grandparents, my siblings, my daughters, and everyone in between.
Abigail at the fun fair in line... she looks so little to me.
We're "pulling Christmas hours" as I call them with Scott. As organized as I am we're franticly wrapping when we should be sleeping, running to staples for room parent copies, I'm at their school every single day... phew!
Anna's art work at the Art Show... not her school. She takes art lessons on Saturday mornings about 30 minutes away... awesome program and so worth the drive.
I think when that first "lazy day of summer" hits we're going to watch Disney movies back to back all day. (in our jammies) I don't think I'll even have enough energy for the pool that first day. Oh no... Scott and I leave for Philly those first few days to go to that EE conference.
The CT Art show end of the year.
Meanwhile, we trudge through. Not in a bad way really... I'm not too crabby despite all that is circling around me. Surprisingly it's all okay as long as I get my laundry and cleaning in each day even if it's late at night. I've got to have an organized house, good dinner, and clean floors. Then I can do anything.
They had fun frame and pictures scenes this year.
I know that the end is in sight but it's sure hard believing that it will ever come.
Just so I can remember when I'm 80... her puppy's name is New York City because... well she got him there.
I'm mixed of course. They had the most amazing teachers this year. I'll sure miss my place in Abigail's kindergarten class... sweet as can be. And with another year ending means that they are another grade level older, sigh. June 25th... it'll tug at the heartstrings for sure.
Celebrating the end of her 6th year... I didn't tell them even though they gave her a bear that said 5 years. I should know... I 've been driving her for that many years. :)
So today I'll soak in the littleness that is still in my kitchen, bathtime, bedtime, and on the way to school. Little pink butterfly sandals, and Anna's pink butterfly backpack. I'd love to sum up this post with some happy words of wisdom... but I'm just too tired.
Just another piece she liked.
