Ellery's last day of school was actually a couple of weeks ago.
It's been a great year at Head Start and she is so excited for Kindergarten next year. But the day passed with little fanfare. Anna still had a lot of school left, after all.
Anna's last day was yesterday. Since it was only a half-day, we spent the afternoon celebrating.
We took the obligatory pictures (hello, I really need to print and frame both of those pictures of my lovely girl!) and sorted through all the junk, papers and broken crayons shoved into her backpack.
We attempted (and failed) to put some pink streaks in the girls' hair with Kool-Aid. I think I watered it down too much. We're going to try again today with less water and Cherry instead of Pink Lemonade. Well, on Anna at least. Ellery was not a fan of the whole process. Obviously.
We had homemade frosting and graham crackers for a snack.
And, most importantly to Anna, we spread a quilt under our willow tree and read big books. It's how she plans on spending most of her summer and I'm going to join her as much as possible.
I guess the celebration of Summer is still going on. Sam spent hours this morning snuggled up in my bed playing on the iPad. The girls are still in their pajamas- watching cartoons and eating cereal. I love summer!
