Today was the last day of preschool and Friday was the girls last day at Mary’s (pictures above are from Friday morning). It’s amazing how much they’ve grown this year!
Bo’s preschool program was this morning and in my eyes, he stole the show. Seriously, he has more personality than he knows what to do with and their hoe down was simply adorable. All of the kids sang the cowboy song below to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot. Totally adorable.
I’m a Little Cowboy
I’m a little cowboy, wearing a hat (point to self and ‘hat’)
Here are my spurs (tap heels)
And here are my chaps (brush thighs)
As soon as I get up, (stretch, pretend to wake up)
I work all day (pretend to lasso a cow)
Then I get on my horse (pretend to mount horse)
And I ride away. (gallop in place)
Then they sang another song where they counted to 100 and did different cowboy actions with each set of 10. Hilarious and super cute! As with all programs so far, I managed to have tears in my eyes through most of it. The worst part was at the end when Ms. Vicki was saying something special about each of the kids and hugging them all good-bye. Luckily, Bo will be back in her class next year, but the soon-to-be Kindergarteners made my eyes well with tears. I haven’t quite wrapped my head around how quickly time passes.
It hasn’t hit me yet that it’s summer. I wrapped up two classes for a school that I’m taking a break from this summer (I’ll still have two schools until July and three schools after July – but going from four to two for a little while feels like a break!) and we celebrated with a picnic in our front yard for lunch on Friday. I’m planning to spend lots of time with the kiddos, potty train the girls, and utilize a young woman who recently graduated from college to help fill in for work hours and to help out for trips to the pool, children’s museum, etc. The list of things I’d like to do this summer is miles long and our weekends are already established until August. It’s exhausting just thinking about it – but I know it’s going to be fun too. The kiddos are all at an age where we can go and do a lot more than we’ve been able to in previous summers and I plan to take full advantage of it.
