What can I say . . . the last week of school was a blur and on the VERY last day of school I got sick, said goodbye to my kiddos, I checked out of my room, went home, and turned into "I'm-on-vacation-and-you-are-lucky-if-I-actually-get-dressed-today" Lindsay. Its not pretty folks. NOT PRETTY.
Soooo . . . lots to share from the past few weeks. First off - my kidlets had a real "official' graduation with caps and diplomas and everything! They were so darn cute! I, on the other hand, was a mess. I tend to be a . . . how should I put it . . . basically, I'm a nervous sweater. As in I get sweaty, not the cardigan sweater. So with all the microphone talking, making sure my kidlets didin't fall off the back row of the risers, etc. etc. I was a sweaty mess. And then we took pictures.
I'm sure I looked greeeeeeeeeat! ;)
Anyhow, here are some pictures from the last day that I remembered to snap:
All my kiddos got memory books as their goodbye gift from me. They are a LOT of work, but the kids LOVE looking back at the photos of all we did over the year!
Hanging up for the occasion was our kinder graduation portraits in cap and gown (idea from Little Kinder Warriors). They just turned out so darn cute!
On the kiddos' desks were all their graduation "goodies": a framed picture of them in their cap and gown, their memory book, and our completed America book. (More to come on that in a later post, I promise!).
Since school's been over, I have been in full-on stay-at-home-mommy mode . . . . I have been organizing closets and old clothes for storage. (Check out Jack's super sweet loafers that no longer fit!)
I have been cleaning up after my little "helper" (whose new favorite game it to empty every drawer and basket in the house).
We can often be spotted cruising the neighborhood. In the convertible, of course!
We have also been swimming every chance we get, including Mommy and Me classes! (Note: That is not mommy's hairy chest in photo below!)
And finally, I have been doing some fun Pinterific crafts around the house! I made these cute lil pinwheels for the Fourth of July festivities . . .
. . . and also this half of a yarn-wrapped wreath.
Yep, I waited until the night before the Fourth, and after a whole episode of The Bachelorette this was as far as I got! Oh well, guess I will have it for next year!!
Well, thats about it for now! Hope you are all rested, reading a good book and laying poolside with a margarita in your hand! Or just rested. :)
