Here we are with only 5 days left of our first summer vacation.
I'm so proud of you. You faced some fears over the last few months, you'll be swimming soon. We had lots of fun checking off all your summer fun list items.
You were supremely patient with your mom as she spent weeks making jewelry and then winded up selling nothing.
So I want you to remember playing in the park. The solid month of rain we had this June. How we played on the renewed front porch.
STEM camp, even though we only went to half of them.
Reading lots of books!
4th of July fireworks on the bridge with Uncle C.
Uno, endless games of Uno.
Your yummy kindergarten green beans. You grew those kiddo! We'll be snacking on them this fall because I froze them. Picking tomatoes and sunflowers.
Wigglers 1-3 all leaving your mouth. The Tooth Fairy was seriously worried #3 was going to be a June loss! Whew! It made it's debut in July.
Camping with Uncle C and David. Night fishing and Daddy catching his first ever fish at age 48!
Going to the zoo with Aunt S.
And how can we forget Lego Pirates of the Caribbean game and Lego Jack and his grand disappearing act. How did he end up in the camping gear???
Song of the Sea and Nocturna.
Drive-in Minions. Star gazing. Meteorshower where only Mommy got up.
4 day weekend with Ninny and Buppy! Emma, Kennywood and the zoo!
Playing at the Thing.
Swiming with cousins, lake swimming, Palace of Gold, McConnells Mill, endless trips to ice cream.
There was some loss too. Dunner's Oak being set on fire. Mr. Thomas dying. The slide at the park being smashed then boarded up.
Your best buddy going to a different school this year. He's still just 3 doors up and I set a play date tomorrow so that technically scratches off the last item on your list!
We sheltered it all together. I truly hope it was the best of summers. We still have a few more days. I had a great time with you. And your Dad and I love you to the moon and back!
My wishes for next week's new beginning for you: Have fun; Make some more friends; Please behave on the bus this year, please; Always having the fast undies for gym days; Having a teacher you love just as much as Mrs. B!
You're one step closer to Big kid and we are so excited for you! But it's still okay if we call you kidlet for just a little while longer right?
