It's comming to an end.

Another school year has come and almost gone. Abbey and Lindsay celebrated early last week when their school held the annual Jelly Bean Field Day on Thursday. We joined them for lunch and they had fun activities all day. The biggest and most hyped being the tug of war. Each of their classes won once. Yay!

Friday was Pajama Day. Lindsay and Abbey had planned just the right jammies for the day. Latter that evening Abbey was going to the 5th grade lock in. Dropped her off at 7pm and picked her up at 7am. There was dinner and snacks, movies, games, and all of the kids from the 5th grade to hang out with. Teachers and parents were there for supervision. I wish she had gotten some pictures, but alas there are none. I can't help but think that these are memories that will last forever.

Lindsay will return to do the 4th grade, but my first baby will never go back. She is crossing over to middle school. I know that a chapter is closing in my mother novel and it makes me sad. I know that there are new things to experience and enjoy, but that doesn't really cheer me up.

Not to fret quite yet though, cuz the summer is going to be fun. I've planned some great stuff and I'll be sure to post about them. For now, here's what they chose for PJ day.


Yes, those are claws that Lindsay made out of paper.

It was hard to get a good shot of Abbey. She has no patience for pictures, this is the best one.


5 days left

A 5th grade lock-in sounds so cool! I loved lock-ins, our church did one or two every year... oh, to be a kid again. Good thing we have our own kids to live vicariously through, right? :)

I love when schools put on special activities. They really are some of the few things kids will remember forever.

Heidi,
The funny thing is Oy (she could afford any wok she wants) doesn't own a wok. She has a favorite old frying pan. So don't let a wok stop you from some good eating.

I can't wait for summer, it is busy but so nice to have sunshine :)

Hug our girls, and yes there are plenty more memories to come after primary school...

I was thinking about your girls earlier and trying to remember what grades they were going into next year. I can't believe that Abby is going to be a middle schooler! Time flies :)
