Seven Quick Takes: End of School Edition

One: Woohoo!  We are done with our school year!  We’re off to a Guatemalan restaurant to celebrate.

Two: I’m looking forward to a summer full of tea parties (this was the best one ever).

Three: I used my Christmas money for a new sewing machine. The minute I pulled it out, 29 elves came out of the woodwork to sew with me. Within 30 seconds, the room looked like this. Tell me this happens at your house.

Four: This Sunday was Pentecost, which is Owen’s baptism anniversary.  Dinner was lovely, and then I had this to contend with elves who ate dinner.  Wait… maybe they were Orcs.

Five: On Memorial Day we went to make a mess at my parents’ house. It was lovely. Owen became an Egyptian real estate tycoon. (For some weird reason, all the properties on the Egyptian board have British names. That’s Colonialism for you.)

Six: We finished our standardized testing last week by celebrating with two homeschool families who have moved away… Such fun! I’m not sure who had more fun- kids or adults! (these are the kids.)

Seven: we got together with our Karen friends to play soccer and have ice cream sandwiches in the park. They have very little English and we have no Karen, but we didn’t need anything but laughter to play soccer.

I’m not sure what I’m going to have to pull out of my hat to make the summer any more fun than last week.
