Last Day of School

This was Julia on her first day of preschool last September:



Doesn't she look tiny?

Today is the last day of school, celebrated with a Family Ice Cream Social on the playground during the last half-hour of class. Can't you just picture it? A bunch of three- and four-year-olds and their baby sisters and brothers, chowing down on ice cream sundaes at eleven in the morning in the May sunshine? What's not to love, really? I mean, we all have a lot to celebrate: our toddlers now big kids, everyone joyful and in love with school, a dreamy summer ahead.

Of course, it's also going to be a LONG summer. I'll be the one tearing my hair out in June, trying to fill all those sunny mornings. Wish me--and all the other mamas--luck.

They change so much in a year, don't they?

It'll be a fun summer because now that G is more mobile, you'll be able to do so much more with them!
