Lest you think this is actually the last Sound Bytes, I will squelch any rumors and let you know that it is indeed not.
It is actually just the last day of school – FINALLY.
Big E’s actual last day was supposed to be the third, but thanks to our nemesis the Polar Vortex plans changed.
We stopped and had a celebratory last day cinnamon roll at our local coffee house before I sent him on his way today. He’s become a such a little man, and I see so many wonderful changes happening – like we are actually enrolling him in a summer camp. Last year we had so many reservations, but this year, I know he will have a blast. Seriously, who wouldn’t. They get to swim everyday and they have field trips – wait can parents sign up? I could really use a summer vacation.
Luckily the hubs and I are planning a solo vacation in a couple weeks, and I’m literally counting down the days, hours and minutes until our plane leaves.
In the meantime, we are in full baseball mode with both boys enrolled and every single night of the week we spend at some sort of ballpark. However much I eye-roll I truly love it. My dad wasn’t much for having me enroll in sports or activities and I think giving this opportunity to our boys is benefiting them in so many ways.
Just check out Big E’s First Day and Last Day photo…notice the self-confidence, and his anxiety level is down too. Even though he’s attending a camp where he may not know anyone, he’s still cool with it. That’s BIG…HUGE even.
So, while it may be the last day of school it’s the beginning of something GREAT.
Speaking of great let’s get those Sound Bytes shall we.
3. “I want 200 Starbursts for dinner.”
I’m cool with that as long as you brush your teeth afterward, and I don’t have to cook.
2. “Mama that box has ribbons and trappings in it.”
I guess a little redhead as read too many Charles Dickens novels.
1. “Mama why is that lady dead.”
I practically died myself from laughing so hard as I explained to my littlest that she indeed was still alive and just sunbathing in the park.
Well, I’m just finishing up the day at work, and then heading with some of my Iowa City Moms blog friends to the Inspire Motherhood Conference. Can’t wait to enjoy some girl time.
In Case you missed it…
