Today is the last day of school. I’m not sure what’s more bittersweet, the first day or today! But we are ready for summer, one way or another.
There’s a heap of “outdoor toys” by the back door as they head to the park…
There’ll be popsicles ready for when they come in…
And the kitchen table will look the way it looks all year round, full of art supplies and projects…Sometimes we clear it off before a meal, sometimes we don’t :)
These are my old caran d’ache crayons from design school. Oh how I love these! They are smooth, come in brilliant colors and blend beautifully with water. (They are not inexpensive but if your kids learn to use them respectfully, they will benefit from using high quality materials! Amanda speaks to this topic in her book)
And me? Did I accomplish everything I intended to before school ended for the summer?
Nope. Not even close. And if this year was any indication of the speed in which time travels, summer will be over in in the blink of an eye! Hold on, here it comes!
