Oh So Random

This weekend my daughter's classmate invited the entire grade to his house for an End Of School Year Splash. They live right on a lake and were told to bring sunblock, towels, a swimsuit, water shoes if they had them and a life vest if they had one. When we got there one of her besties was arriving at the same time which now that I have seen it should always happen. When friends arrive to a party together they don't feel uncomfortable when they first get there because they have each other. Mental note to set this up for my daughter for the next party.

My girl is in the middle, blue suit dragging her friend on a float

Goddess has matured so much over the past few years. It kills me sometimes.

She was having a blast
The kids had a blast. Even though it was a drop off, I hung out. I am not a drop of kind of parent unless I know you and really trust you. I can name three people like that right now where my kids would be dropped off without a second thought. Three is better than none.

The parents also set up a slip and slide. Which I hear was very cold.

She acted like she was about to go down but changed her mind last minute

Her friends are fearless

running through was apparently fine
Then before I knew it there was talk of  a boat ride.

Goddess without her glasses can see nothing. The squinting is not just from the sun
before I even had time to discuss, she was on the boat

And it was being lowered into the water
I watched them drive away and I thought...wait who is this guy? I don't really know him.
While the girls were gone I busied myself with watching the boys who were jumping from a 25 foot deck into the lake. UGH...

Even Goddess' friend took the plunge when she returned. Go FAITH!
It was a great day and while I was worried about my daughter who drove away in a boat with a bunch of other 5th grade girls and a stranger she informed me on her return she was having the best time.

Still going to hover but learning that my little girl is totally growing up and doesn't need me as much.



  1. What fun! Looks like a perfect way to celebrate the end of the year!!
    Thanks for linking up!

  2. What a great way to end the year. It looks like a lot of fun. I have a 7th grader this year and I agree...SOB!

  3. That was nice he invited everyone over for a party. It looks like fun. I like to hover with my 3rd grader too. That would be more comfortable, to arrive the same time as a friend.
