My son finished his last day of kindergarten yesterday and we are officially on summer vacation. Sadly our town doesn’t have a kindergarten graduation so we did our own. We spent the day swimming, made a trip to Toys R Us to pick out a couple new lego building sets and a special dinner at a favorite restaurant.

Summer Vacation begins His teacher made a beautiful DVD of their year in kindergarten and I think I cried through most of it while we watched it last night. The song selections were perfect! Thank you Mrs. H if you are reading this :).

My mom and son have already hit the pool a few times together. One of the benefits of multigenerational living.

Summer Vacation begins

Blogging will slow down a bit now that school is out.  I cannot believe their are only two months of summer vacation. It seems so short! We have a trip planned to Newport as well as to Lake Winnipesaukee. Thinking about all of that makes me feel like the summer will be over before I know it. My plan is to slow down and enjoy it.

  1. My son’s last day of kindergarden is tomorrow! I can’t believe Grade 1 next year!
    I like your idea of celebrating on your own (since his class didn’t). Hmmm…what to do tomorrow??

    Your son is just as cute as they come! The next thing you know you’ll be crying at his high school graduation in 2026 because it seems like it happens that fast. (Don’t cry right now about it, though)

    I remember when my son was born in 1981 I calculated that he would graduate from high school in the year 2000 and that just seemed so incredible – and far, far away.

    My advice is to live every day to the fullest with your kids – hug them, talk to them, play with them. I love it that my son will still jump up and sit on the kitchen counter while I’m cooking just to talk to me or put his arm around me while we’re walking – and he’s almost 32 years old. Sometimes you wish they’d never grow up.
