And I'll have two girls to entertain .... and feed ... and keep from fighting (this part scares me :)
BUT, on the glorious flip side, I am sooooo looking forward to not packing lunches, not making the long drive across town, not dealing with homework and discipline cards and spending some fun, quality time with my girls.
I feel more excitement than dread, thank goodness.
Both girls have had a great year. We were blessed with great teachers this year and will be so sad to say goodbye. I've learned more about letting the teachers off the hook and recognizing when my girls are being who God created them to be and not what a teacher perceives. This knowledge is golden.
I'm not even sure if that sentence made sense to anyone but me. But, I totally get it ;)
So, at 12:00 today, bookbags and lunchboxes will be retired for the summer. I'm taking the girls (along with my Mom who retired yesterday) for celebratory pedicures.
Then, we'll finish up what little packing we have to do and pray the next week goes by slow as a snail.
First Day of School (August 2011 - First and Fourth Grade) ...
The girls took their end-of-year teacher gifts this morning. Thank you, Pinterest :)
