It's Here!

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?

What a fun way to end the year! And I'm doing laundry today so I can pack and get the heck out of Dodge.

What a fun tradition! Have fun and hope you find everything you need. It is kind of cold here in CA and Logan has water games today so I am hoping it warms up. Enjoy your summer w/ your kiddos :)

I LOVE those traditions! Hopefully our new neighborhood in Florida will lend itself to things like this.

Thanks to you I do the summer banner too. I use cheap dollar store wrapping paper as a background and I print out the words on my computer and tape them to the wrapping paper. Works great. Lily loves this tradition. She wasn't crazy about getting squirted at the school bus though.

, I have been having a wonderful time since we last spoke. A quick recap, I had been married for 20 years, 4 kids, both of us had very demanding jobs and when we were finally able to lay down at night were too exhausted to make love, even occasionally. Our love life had gone from hot (hence the 4 kids) to non-existent. We settled into a pattern and just thought that this was how things were supposed to be when we finally “grew up”. Boy were we wrong! Since having the increased sexual desire love spell cast on us we have not been able to get enough of each other. We have even gone so far as to having weekly “business meetings” that last 4 -5 hours… we get A LOT of work done during those meetings! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr obodo templeofanswer@hotmail.co.uk and his circle of casters. Absolutely Amazing!
