End of the school year

We have 4 days left!
I cannot believe how quickly the school year went. Remember how I was worrying about how H would adjust to Kindergarten… so many milestones and proud moments. She had the best teacher and I know H will miss her.

Recently H lost her first tooth. She actually pulled it out herself! She was so excited and screamed "Mommy, Mommy, my tooth came out!" She even wrote a note to the tooth fairy that night.
Dear Tooth Fairy
Here is my tooth.
Love H
She made sure to leave a pencil so the tooth fairy had something to write with. H asked "How is she going to hold this pencil? It's going to be so big!" Ha ha I love it, the wonders of a child.
The next morning she receive a nice exchange for her tooth… $1, a special note and fairy dust!

Last week was H's class field trip and I experienced chaperoning for the first time. We went to the fish hatchery and a local zoo. I had a great group of girls and perfect weather that day!

Soon I'll have a first grader and Pre-Kindergartener!?!
But first we are going to enjoy these next 3 months of summer vacation!!! It's going to be nice to have mornings at our own pace and not rushing out to catch the bus, hehe.

Are your kids finished with school? 
What's the first thing you will do on summer vacation?


  1. Anna's last day is this coming Friday. I feel meh about it because she will just be going to daycare with her brother. During the summer, I wish I could be a stay at home mom so I can play with the kids more. But I will enjoy the "slower" pace of not having to drop off two kids at two different places. We won't be as rushed.

    I can't wait to chaperon in the future. I remember my mom chaperoning my class on a trip to Philly back in 6th grade and it was very fun!

    1. A "slower" pace is always nice. I'm sure you have fun things planned to do with them on the weekends this summer :)

  2. How cute, the comment by N about the size of the pencil. And cute that she left a note + fairy dust :). Ahh, it really is nice to not have to rush in the morning!

    1. Actually H made that comment :) And I think the tooth fairy is going to visit us again real soon. The tooth next to it is getting pretty loose.
      I'm going to enjoy the mornings now… but with my luck they will be waking up early! haha

  3. Haha I love her note to the tooth fairy. Very straight to the point! Yay for summer time, enjoy!

    xo, Yi-chia

    1. HAHA Thanks Yi-chia! Have a GREAT summer too :)
