My parents bought a new house. It has a pool! They haven't officially moved in yet, but we have already visited the backyard.
We took the kids out of school early the other day (today is the last day, so really they could not have missed much!) and we headed to Redlands. We stopped at Rubios for fish tacos and then we set ourselves up for a pool day.
The kids had so much fun! Everyone enjoyed the sunshine. Ty loved it too. We already have another pool day planned for this coming Monday.
Swim lessons for the kids start on Monday as well! We are ready for our summer break.
This was Zoey after the pool. Sunshine wears little people out!
So fast forward 2 days and we have finally arrived at the last day of school! No more sunshine. It was a cloudy 50 degree day! I went to the school for Zackary's kindergarten program.
speaking of Kindergarten....This entire year we thought Zackary was in transitional kindergarten and that next year he would be in regular kindergarten. It was what we signed him up for and he wasn't old enough to be in kindergarten anyway. Surprise! He has spent the entire year in regular kindergarten and we had no idea. His teacher was as surprised as we were. She looked up his birthday and realized he should not have been in the class. He has kept up really well and they were ready to send him on to first grade, but Ty and I just felt like he could use another year, especially since he is so much younger than the other kids. He will be attending a full- day kindergarten class in the fall. I don't really think of the situation as holding him back. I am thinking of it as giving him more time to prepare for first grade!
We have had a lot of cake and lots of celebrating.
Birthdays, graduations, Mother's Day, etc....
Ty and I went on a 12 mile hike up Mt. San Jacinto.
It was beautiful. A wonderful date idea!
An end of the year homework assignment for Max involved eating and writing about chocolate pie.
I love it when homework and chocolate pie collide!
Band concerts, band tour, band parties.
There was lots of band.
Zoey is still hanging out with me and we plan to keep it that way! After much debate I have decided to do preschool for Zoey at home next year. Pinterest has already helped me plan out most of the lessons for the year!
This is Zoey being a caterpillar...she is just cute.
Epic brown butter cinnamon rolls!
This was yesterday after school.
We were celebrating because we had nowhere to be all afternoon!
Summer really can't get here soon enough. 6 more days!
So basically school is still in session, we are ready to be done, it's been a great year, but we need a break!
