School’s Out For Summer!

We did it! We made it through our first year at Stanford. I am so proud of The Little Girl and all that she has accomplished this year. Yes, it’s just preschool but it was a big change for her and for us. It was a new learning environment, a new school, new teachers, new friends, new rules, new expectations. But, we did it! Okay, SHE did it but I’m gonna take some credit since I packed umpteen hundred lunches and sat in the drop off/pick up line for approximately 20+ minutes every day.
Let’s see how much my favorite preschooler has changed over the last year.
1st Day of School
Last Day of School
She’s grown quite a bit don’t cha think?
We made a big fuss over the first day of school and I was equally excited to go out with a bang for the last day of school. When I was in college in Mobile, Alabama I once happened to drive through a school zone on the last day of school. (FYI – there are no buses in Mobile. Everyone gets picked up by car and it kept a lot of college girls with an after school job.) Anyway, I saw that lots of the moms had decorated their cars for the big event. There were streamers. There were balloons. There were windows painted. It looked so festive and I fell in love with the idea. I vowed then and there to do the same when I had kids.
So, today, I did it! I decorated our vehicle inside and out and I made a huge fuss over the last day of school complete with balloons.
Skylar was thrilled. She even told me, “Mom, I loooove this car!” (see her reaction below) Mission accomplished. After school, we headed to a little celebration party at a friend’s house and it was the perfect icing on the cake to my little surprise.
Now, let’s get this summer going! We’ve already done camping. Up next on our list of summer fun is a road trip to Chattanooga.
School’s out for summer!
Side Note: Anyone else have flashbacks of Dazed and Confused when they read that? Personally, I can’t get the song out of my head. Schoooooool’s out fo summa!
