10 months ago, she left the house excited for the first day of 1st grade.
Today she catapulted herself high-ish into a tree, because 1st grade was soooooo a few hours ago.
I’m freakishly excited to be on summer break. To have more flexibility in the schedule, not have to get the little boys up from naps early every day to go to afternoon pickup.
Heck, not having to drag four tired bodies out of the house at 7:40am every morning makes my heart skip a beat with excitement. Not to mention, I’m pretty excited to have Piper home during the day as well. She’s a pretty great kid.
To celebrate, we went to oogu latte (as we call it ’round these parts) and I let Piper completely self-serve herself all the fro-yo she wanted. I made a conscious decision not to deceptively steer her towards the sugar free flavors, or tell her how yummy those (light as a feather, .47cents an ounce adds up quickly) cute little marshmallows and sprinkles looked.
Except, she still went right for the marshmallows and sprinkles anyway. That and a few blueberries too.
We have 8 glorious weeks ahead of us before the educational rat races starts all over again.
Want to hear something super scary? My little Nola Bird will be heading to kindergarten come August. Ho boy, I need these next few weeks to go slowly.
I’m not sure I’m ready for all this growing up and stuff.
