The End is in Sight, Will I Survive the Summer?

The end of the school year was today for my kiddos. Where has the time gone?

I went on a field trip Tuesday to the roller rink with Miss M and her class. Talk about a flash from the past. How many of you held hands for the first time on the roller rink? There was some fun activities while we were there, Miss M tried the hula hooping on skates and did pretty good!

Then we went to a local park for lunch. I can't imagine what the locals thought when 2 buses full of first graders pulled up. No kids were lost or hurt so we went from there to the OmniMax theater to see Mysteries of the Great Lakes. It was pretty good I thought, but it was mostly just fun to go with her class and enjoy the end of the year.

That night we went camping for a night. It was a beautiful night.We stayed in our pop-up camper in this field. It was pretty fun but BFing Cold! (don't ask what the BF stands for its not PC) I think it got down into the 30's that night and our heater is broken on the camper. I guarantee it won't stay broken too long.

The next day was beautiful though 60-70's with a slight wind and hardly a cloud in the sky. The older kids had school so Noley and I got to hang out there alone. We played a game.

I knitted on Noley's sweater.

Noley blew bubbles.

WE searched for and found some treasure.

We found some pretty rocks to take pictures of.

The field was used for haying so there were rock piles all around and in the field, big ones we could climb up on, so we did.

A fun end to the school year for all, I promise a FO for next blog post. The seamless sweater is done it just needs the right pictures taken.

Last but not least, it was KD's birthday last weekend and he turned 9, I thought you should see his new legos. Jealous? Oh come on you know you are!

It even comes with a little Darth Vader:)

YEAH! I am jealous! MY boys love those SW lego kits. (Hey, check out on youtube - type in your google "darth vader in the death star cafeteria" - it is NOT kid friendly, but you and your hubby will get a kick out of it!

What a fun camping night. It looks so peaceful and sunny.

Sounds like a good game!

I always liked "camping" in the pop up camper when I was a kid. I don't think my mom liked it so much, though.

Arggghhh...Happy Birthday Kyle. I am a bad Auntie. Give him a hug and tell him that his legos are awesome.

I love your "campsite". It looks like a great place to spend some time. Noley is so Cute! It looks like you guys had a great time. Last but not least, it isn't me that is jealous of the SW Lego's but my boys sure are. They love them too.
