Bring on Summer!!!

It is official...SUMMER IS HERE!
The last day of school was yesterday and the scorching heat has settled in! We are ready for summer at our house! I will not bore you with all the pictures that I took yesterday. Here is just one of Jaxon and his buddies at the pool.I don't get any pictures of Makenna and her friends because you see she is a freshman or rather a sophomore now and I did not see her until 9:00 last night. I don't really like that. I know that I am missing out on some great photo moments. but I must realize that she is a teenager and making her own photo moments! Every year on the last day of school I get a little teary okay okay a lot teary. It is such a great day for kids. They work so hard and grow up so much during the year and it just happens a slide show, a graduation ceremony, the pomp and circumstance song, something will set me off! This year I really didn't think it would happen...tears that is. As you know I wasn't in the classroom all that much so I don't know the kids names really. But then, a stinkin slide show! Just seeing the kids from the first day to the last and the friendships that have either gotten stronger or developed,missing teeth, funny haircuts, I don't know what it is but I just get teary! I don't know how teachers do it! I would be a mess every year!
I am ready for slower schedules, no homework and lots of beach time! With as hot as it is right now we are starting right away. Beach tomorrow!
So here is to a fun and happening summer for all of us out there! Enjoy these times with your kids they go by so fast!
