It's the last day of school! Wooo hoooooo!
Tomorrow morning, I will NOT be waking up at 7am to make sandwiches!
It's a busy day today, and I've got a lot of running around to do. I'm still looking for those long, tube-like water soakers at the dollar stores, and no one has them. A few years ago, I started a neighborhood tradition. All the parents at our bus stop wait for the kids on the last day of school with water soakers, and we blast the kids as they get off the bus. We have a huge water fight in the middle of the street. The first year was the best because the kids were unsuspecting! Then we take the party to the pool and have lots of cupcakes, popsicles, snacks, and "mommy juice!"
I'm also still looking for a big roll of white paper. Every year I make a big "welcome to summer" banner and hang it across the front door to the house. The girls bust through it as the start to thier summer vacation. Where to go? Ac Moore? Office Max? Any suggestions?
I also forgot to get an end of year gift for Clara's teacher, and just realized it this morning :( Guess I'll be dropping something off at the school this afternoon..... What do you give as teacher gifts?
The countdown begins..... 7 hours to go!
What are you doing today?
a splash of summer
