The girls are excited to have friends over to play or to meet friends at their homes or at parks. We hope the summer continues with happy memories of good times with good friends!
These next two and half months are destined to fly by. I can tell already by how quickly the first week sped along. We had multiple play dates with various friends, and the girls already tore through a few special activities Mom had secretly planned (like Play Doh for instance — love the hair-dos and macarons they made). We attended preschool storytime as well which was packed full due to school-age siblings in a tow. The thunderstorms precluded us from doing much outside but that allowed for an afternoon of snacks and movie.
It was a hectic week last week. Apparently that’s the norm for end of school but it was a marathon to hurdle all the activities and events. One of the activities was taking a field trip to a farm which included a hay ride, walking through tall grass to a creek, riding a shetland pony, and petting various critters. Of the interesting things we saw, one bull chased the hay wagon out of its territory and one sheep got stuck in the gate. The bus ride there and back was extremely exciting for these kids who don’t usually ride a bus to school. Unni was so sad about leaving her wonderful, beloved kindergarten teacher and burst into tears after the very last day.
