The girls finished up school this morning, and ran head first into Summer Vacation. They got off the bus at our friends' house, where the front yard and driveway was decorated with signs, balloons and streamers. They also supplied water balloons, water squirters and snacks. The kids rushed through the crepe paper finish line, right into a water battle of major proportions. 2 hours later, everyone was soaked through and famished.
All 3 girls are sleeping peacefully downstairs, having been stuffed with tacos, showered and read to from "The Long Winter." Tomorrow I have promised a trip to the city. I am already exhausted thinking of keeping up with everyone for an entire summer! I wonder if I can talk them out of it?
