The Last Day of School

Today was Hayes' last day of school! So our summer has officially started as of this afternoon. And I am happy to say that both are napping at the moment, which is a pretty good way to start the next 3 1/2 months at home all day, every day! haha! I am looking forward to it but curious about how we are going to fill up our days. But it makes me happy to live right here in B'ham, where there are lots of good options for kids and play.

This is why I love Mother's Day Out...doing things we don't do at home every day and interacting w/other kids!

She insisted on taking her baby this morning and would not get out of the car without her. I told her she would lose her. She did not care. Oh well baby made it back home. I have to pick my battles carefully these days. She is all of 2 years old, stubborn and Miss independent.

We love these ladies...sweet teachers, Martha and Carol, but missing Necee. I'll have to get her pic w/her later. Hayes had a major bond w/Necee from day 1!

I kept telling Hayes this morning that this was her last day until September. She of course had no idea what that meant! She has had the best year in the Puppies Class w/her teachers and friends. They are sweet, sweet ladies and have taken great care of her this year. They sent home a cute All About Me book and artwork from each month. This thrills me. I never knew how meaningful those little things were to mamas when I was teaching kindergarten and sending home cards/gifts for Christmas, Mother's Day, etc. Now I can't get enough of them! That little handprint makes me want to cry just to look at it, sweet little hands and fingers! No actually the sweet part is that she had no idea what they were making when they painted her hands. I'm sure she was in a rush to get back to playing. I love it. Next year she will be in the 2 year old class! Now when I look at her, she looks like she should be in the 2 year old class! She already wants to walk in and out to the car by herself and carry her own bag. She does not want me to pick her up and carry her in and out anymore. She will go Wednesday/Friday mornings when she starts back. She is growing up way too fast and I don't like it at all.

She was super excited about her bucket from her teachers w/sunglasses and other fun stuff. Now we are ready for the summer!

And not to leave out the little man in the house...he got his little footprints done last week. I think they turned out precious!
