I can’t tell you how much I’ve been anticipating this day. I know for a fact that I’ve been looking forward to the end of the school year more than either of my boys. Julian is pretty depressed about the prospect of no school and all fun. Strange creature.
The weeks leading up to today have been pretty busy.
Field trip with Julian’s class over the Brooklyn Bridge. What a great group of kids!
(There was also the moment when one of the dad chaperones bought his daughter and himself (!) huge ice cream cones while 25 ice cream hungry children and infuriated teachers/parents looked on.)
Super Heroes. All day every day.
Our tiny city garden! We’ve harvested a few strawberries already. Waiting for broccoli, cucumbers, and peppers. I can’t believe how quickly these babies grew. We love our plants! The owl and plastic bags are keeping them safe.
Parties! The boys went to four (!) birthday parties over the weekend. It was sugar and pizza insanity. Also, Julian’s end-of-year picnic, hot dog parties, and celebratory ice cream.
Julian’s report card
I won’t say much about it because I don’t want to be that annoying parent, but it was amazing, and I cried, and we’re so proud.
Also, Julian is now keeping a journal. Basically, he’s like 16.
Dates with my boys!
I love this time with them.
And we’re off into the summer, starting with a long weekend together. First stop: THE POOL. Second stop: Coney Island. Summer, we’re coming for ya.
