As Alice Cooper Said; School's Out For Summer!

Hooray! I am so happy that school is over for the summer. My readers may remember that I was very sick last summer. Our summer vacation was a bust, as I couldn't really go anywhere because I was heavily medicated after spending two weeks in the hospital and finally having surgery in December. This year, I vow will be different. This week, I am working on a calendar so that the kids know exactly what we are doing and when. Now that I am a working mama, things need to change a little but our plan is to give them an awesome, fun filled summer.

Yesterday, school ended at 12:30 and the kids seemed to almost not realize that they will not see some of their friends until September. Hopefully, we are able to set up play dates and meet ups with most of them throughout the summer.

Handsome and his teacher on the last day of school

Goddess and her Kindergarten Teacher

One of Goddess' classmates parents owns a local deli, and invited her class there for a pizza party. It was the perfect way to end the school year.

We took a yearbook with us and had the kids sign near their names. They ran around with their friends and I got to hear some conversations that made me happy and sad at the same time.

A little girl that Handsome went to preschool with but moved away for Kindergarten came back in the middle of this year. While they are not in class together, I am thrilled to see them together again.

She told me at the circus that Handsome loves her. Then yesterday morning, I heard another little boy telling Jewel that Handsome said, he is going to marry this little girl.

I was a little shocked because I didn't think he thought about things like this.

Yesterday while at the pizza party, how Handsome feels about this girl was the talk of the kids. One little girl in Goddess' class who states she is going to marry Justin Bieber, overheard this is was like, "what, he said that? Why, why her?"

So funny and disturbing, why are kids growing up so fast. I don't believe I was thinking about boys until the 3rd grade. They were so far off my radar before that.

20 minutes later, this little girl again, stood up, put her hand on her hip and stated, "I can't believe he said that? Why her?"

Too crazy. Then I overheard my son's supposed crush telling Goddess while she poured her a drink, very matter of fact like, "my cousin Charlie, tells me all about you. I hear about you every afternoon." Thankfully Goddess was uninterested. While it is very cute, crushes and broken hearts, I was hoping would be very far in the future. However, with the kids these days hearing from other kids at school about boy and girls they like, parents are dealing with crushes much sooner than our parents.

All in all, it was a great day. My kids had a fun time hanging with friends and I got to be a fly on the wall in a moment in my children's life. Good times.
