Well summer vacations are almost over.
This morning we went back to school for Jonathan's Kindergarten orientation.
We found out he was chosen to be in a K-1 combo!
I am VERY happy about that. I was afraid he would get bored and get in trouble. Being with 1st graders will be great for him.
Later this afternoon we go back to see where Will is going to end up and who will be in his class. He should keep the same teacher he had last year and I am very happy about that also.
After that we had to go to the lab for blood tests. All 3 of us.
Yeah that was fuuuuuuuun.
Yesterday the kids had their last day of camp. Meg, their camp counselor was so sad that they were not coming back next week. She was the best! She made my day by saying this "Your boys made my days better this summer!" Ah! I almost cried in front of everyone there. For any parents nothing is better than hearing things like this right?
As stay at home mom, it makes me feel like I am doing something good, it is like my paycheck in a way!!
So summer 2011 is almost in the past.
I always try to make the summer fun for the kids so that they have good memories.
Today I asked them : "What will you say on Monday when your teacher asks what you did during the summer?"
Jonathan: "That I did a race!" (Race is tomorrow)
Will: "That we went to see Cars 2 and the Smurfs!"
Me : "I see, and did you forget we went on a trip?" (May 26-June7)
Jonathan: "Well Mom, that was not summer, that was SPRING!"
He is 5.
He told ME.
Today is rest day....I always feel yuk on rest days...I have aches and pain for no reason.
Tomorrow: 5k race and 1k kids race! My goals: to have a PR, run neg splits and finish with a sprint, all that without dry heaves.
Sunday 10 miles on the menu.
