Sentimental Old You

Well, I'm done with being ready for the kids to start school. We bought school shoes this weekend and I'm over it. Today I'm choosing to live in denial. There's plenty of summer left. We'll probably even go to the pool and pretend like it's June 3 again. Maybe even fire up the grill and drink sweet tea for supper. And eat watermelon.

Remember a couple of months ago? When the girls and I were playing the preschool...with 10 other kids? We had a wonderful year doing Pre-K together. I told Honey that one of the perks of the girls being in my class was that he didn't have to buy teacher gifts.

But I did make myself an end of the year gift. I just didn't finish it until a couple of weeks ago. We picked it up this weekend.

Don't you love it?! I do. What an energetic, spunky, talkative, creative, special class. I love that our class was the Butterfly class. I love watching the magic of 4 year olds turning 5. I love how much they change and grow that year.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar was our signature book. We read it often. They could all act it out. They all knew how it ended.
The girls recognized the butterfly on the plate as the one from the book. Whew! You never know how it's going to turn out. I'm not the most artistic apple in the basket.
I'm are you feeling about August? Are you in denial and pretending that it's June or are you ready for summer to pack up and go home?

That's so cute! I'm learning to be there with you. I was honestly dreading summer, b/c summers have always just been harder on me...but this one wasn't. It was actually much easier...hmmm, wonder why? :) Anyways, so now I'm joining the real world and not wanting school to start either. But, ready or not, right?!

So what are you going to do next year?

LOVE that plate!!! LOVE that song... how creative, and special that it was the name of your class!! I am ready for routine but not ready to get my son to school by 7:45!!!! I think it will be more of an adjustment for me than him! It really HAS flown by...

I am thinking about skipping school this year. I am just not up for it. I'm sure the kids will be thrilled and I shouldn't get too much push back from them.
