Fifty bonus points to whoever can tell me the significance of that song. (Its significance to me, not that it was in “Song of the South.”) Here’s a hint: It makes me very happy.
And speaking of happy things, school is officially out for the summer!!!! We are all in full-on rejoicing mode.
We got a sneak preview of summer fun when we attended the Best. Birthday. Barbecue. Ever. We will be forever grateful to Colton for turning two and inviting us to celebrate with him. His party was at his grandma’s house, where there were goats, chickens, cows, super cool playsets (three of them), and not one, but TWO ziplines.
Dear Russ and Mindy, If your parents ever decide to move, we would like to purchase their house. We will sell our children if necessary to secure the needed funds.
Here are some pics of the big event:
While the boys were having zipline fun, Bitsy was sneaking off the playset. Please notice how she now has enough hair to do bunny ears. I finally grew a child who wasn’t bald until the age of three. I’m so proud.
What? You thought this was going to be a post about school getting out? No worries – that’s coming up next.
Sarah finished her junior year with her 4.0 gpa intact. She gets one week off, and then she will start cosmetology school. Which means that in another short year I will finally be able to get a decent haircut!
Daniel graduated from junior high. He is planning on spending the summer doing freelance programming and hosting epic Warcraft parties.
Emma was bit by the acting bug and performed in her first play. She also finished 5th grade. She did not, however, finish all of her homework. We’ll have to work on that next year.
And Joshua… Over the years, my kids have brought some pretty strange stuff home on the last day of school. Geckos, tarantulas, old keyboards, but this just might win the prize for strangest end-of-year take home object:
Up next…camping, hiking, swimming, fishing, and lots of carefree summer days!
