The Blue Run house was open for Memorial Day weekend this year, so we planned to spend the holiday weekend down there. It worked out perfectly for an end of the school year bash because the last day of school was that Friday. We let the kids pick one friend each to invite and Mamie picked Wyatt and AB picked Emma.
Last year we did the “Walk of Fame” on the last day of school and it was such a hit, that I knew I wanted to make it an end of the school-year tradition.
On Thursday night, we gave Mamie her end of the school-year prize. She got all purple and green on her behavior chart for the entire year! We’re so proud and she said she wanted a PINK kayak as her reward. She was so excited!
DW & I took the boat and kayaks down on Thursday night and set up, while the littles stayed with my parents.
I was so glad Nen, Parker & Quinn were able to go too, because an extra set of adult eyes and hands are always appreciated. ;)
It was the very best way to celebrate the end of another school year! WELCOME, SUMMER!
