Today is the last day of school for my kids. One was up early, and one slept a little later than normal. At one point they both wanted to stay home, but then I reminded them it was "step-up" day and that got them excited. Step-up day is when they get to learn which teacher they will have next year, then they go visit the classroom they will be in and see what other children are in their class. It's a great way to end the school year (and eases a little of the anxiety that can come with a new school year also).
When the bus came I took their picture to make a comparison with first day of school, and then they were off.
I have mixed emotions about summer. Normally I can't wait to have them both at home with me all summer, although this year I am a little nervous as well. There aren't many kids Mr. J's age around, and most of his friends seem to be in daycare still - which means there are only younger kids to play with.
I fear it may be a LONG summer with a LOT of fighting between the boys. That worries me. I am so glad that they will be home, and hubby is off next week so we have lots of family time...but then it's just me and them.
I do have our bucket list ready to go with things to do, and I also know that while I may get frustrated and ready to pull out my hair - I will NOT be glad to be rid of them come school starting in the fall.
