So, we have officially reached the end of the year for both kids.
Jimmy was done first for the year as of last Wednesday. His school's official last day was Thursday, but since he goes in the afternoon, they were done Wednesday. They had their last day fun in class and he got a car math game and his photo album from his teacher like every year. They get pictures of all the things they do during the year.
Bri was done this morning. They had park day last week. Which it was flaming hot outside and I think she had a good day. She came home sweaty and bright red. However, they changed how Park Day was handled. Last year, we had to pay $3 for the pizza and donate anything extra we wanted for supplies. Some parents were assigned items but we were not. This year, we got assigned items to bring. Nothing like supplying 5 oz dixie cups for this thing. I want my extras back, but will never see them again.
Bri had her last mass for the year and then I think they were cleaning out her desks. I think these last days are kinda a waste. Two hours and then go home. Jimmy's would have been an hour and a half if he was in AM Early Childhood.
James got their bikes together the other night for them so the kids have been charging out of the house when we get home and staying out until dusk with the neighbor kids. Bri has almost gotten the hang of riding a two wheeler. I haven't seen it since I went out to write last night.
Meanwhile, I did my first 5k since last August. I'm trying to get back into my groove of one a month but its proving harder than I thought. There is supposed to be one this weekend at our local Y but my calf muscles STILL HURT! I may have to wait another week or two and take it then. I did finish in under an hour, 52:55. Not shabby in my opinion. However it was a chotic start and walk. It wasn't chip timed, it was a shot gun start. And people did not know how these things go or did not listen to the directions. The runners were getting mad at the walkers, but they were behind us and should have been in front of us. Some guy walked it in flip flops and a woman was on her cell phone the entire time. Ugh.
And Mildred keeps making appearances. The weather here has thrown her for a loop and I ended up taking today off. Prescription pain killers would not knock her out. Full neurological symptoms (arm/leg numb, nausea, left eye out of focus) which hasn't happened in quite a while. I'm feeling slightly better but now my eye hurts.
I just need an ENTIRE weekend of sleep. I don't sleep as everyone knows. I almost fell asleep at my desk a couple times yesterday, which sucks. I don't normally do that.
So, only how many weeks of summer to survive?
