And no, I did not mean to dress them alike. But, since they were wearing practically the same outfit, do you think it would have killed them to look and smile at the camera at the same time?
Emma is counting down to the last day of school, and doing a lot of talking about how she's ready for second grade. We'll see how that evolves over the summer. By August we're usually having daily conversations about the next grade being so much harder, her not knowing anybody, and it won't be any FUN!!! Typical stuff, and the open house day always resolves each and every one of those fears. I wish we could do open house before the end of this school year!
Yesterday I told George's preschool teacher that he won't be attending his last day of school next week. I really didn't think I could get through the "graduation" to Kindergarten for the other kids without crying. (Considering I couldn't get through that conversation with her without crying, I think I made a good call on that one!) It's one thing to intellectually make the decision to keep him back a year, to sign the papers and meet the new teachers, and set goals for making it a valuable year. But it's something else entirely to watch the other kids move on without him.
Sorry, didn't mean to get maudlin there. The sun is shining, the kids are (almost) healthy, and Jason's bringing home pizza. Life is good. I'm going to go sit in the sun on top of a Jeep!
