Reese had her last day of school today. She was super excited and jumped right out of bed. We took some pictures before she got on the bus. And boy does she look so grown up!
Some good ole silly posing.
Sam wanted in on the action too but Hayes was still sleeping.
This year’s last day of school went much smoother than last year so we got to have the fun we wanted to have last year. I talked to the mom’s at our bus stop and we planned to have water guns and water balloons for when the kids got off the bus. Reese knew what was coming and was so excited! As soon as they were all off the bus, we soaked them and they loved it. We left the water balloons in the cul-de-sac for them to have fun with and they had a blast.
I think the mom’s had just as much fun because I didn’t get many pictures. The kids were soaked by the time all the balloons were gone and the guns were empty. The mom’s that had middle schoolers asked if they could borrow our sign and guns and decided to refill and wait on their kids to get home. They waited behind some bushes and ambushed them. I was sitting on the front porch and just heard squealing and then see the middle school mom’s chasing down their kids. It was too funny!
Lance got home a little bit early around 5:00 so we decided to go to Moe’s for dinner. While at Moe’s we ran in to one of our neighbors from the bus stop and two kids from Sam’s school class. It was a busy night. We also treated the kids to a Blizzard to celebrate summer and then ran to the mall for a quick second. It is going to be so nice to not have to stick to bedtimes for a little while.
And here is a comparison of the first day and last day. Bows…she won’t wear them much any more. And the first day of school and picture day are usually the only days I can get her to wear her hair down.
I can’t believe I have a second grader on my hands now!
