Last Day of School!! (and clever ways to spend it)

Goodbye 2013-2014 school year! We will treasure the memories, the Kindergarteners’ special persons’ breakfast, the art shows, carnival, learning what a blizzard bag is, haha! We are sad to see it go but excited for the summer ahead!!

Today is the last day of school and guess what? The kiddos didn’t have to go till July due to all the snow days thanks to the awesome blizzards bags and crazy early drop off /late pick up schedule. This year was a little eventful to say the least. I am happy to say we survived and thrived! Momma managed to get the kiddos to school every day on time! Can I get a woohoo for the momma bus…not one tardy and they literally did not miss one day of school (minus the 13+ snow days).

I am going to miss this school year; the kiddos had such amazing teachers. And we made memories this year that we will treasure always. I can’t allow myself to get too sentimental now, I still have to go back to school to pick them up and I’d prefer I not show up on the last day with sad raccoon looking eyes from crying my heart out because my babies are growing to fast. Must. Not. Look. Through. Their Baby books. Why do I do this to myself? Haha!
