School's out! I had never before today seen a school bus do a victory lap, but at Abby's elementary school, all three buses were circling the parking lot honking Shave and a Haircut. It was hilarious. She even got a second grade diploma and a yearbook. At the risk of sounding like a stereotype ("I had to walk up hill both ways barefoot and in the snow. For ten miles! You whippersnappers don't know how good you got it!"), I never got a yearbook until I was in Jr. High.
We have a busy summer planned. Lizzy's going to the Nest a couple mornings a week, so as to feel like she has "camp like my big sistahs". Abby's going to Brownie Scout Camp for a week, and Museum of Flight Camp another (she did that one last year and loved it). They're both going to stay with Grandma at her time-share condo for a few days, and Abby's going to spend a whole week with her paternal grandparents, where she gets to engage in such rousing activities and "collecting eggs from real live chickens".
We're still cleaning out our storage unit - at least I plan to continue once the cottonwood fluff has settled some - so we can take it off the lease and save a hundred bucks or so. And there are always assorted household projects to complete. Should be a productive summer.
