My little man had his first full day of school, a practice day for next year. When asked, do you like Kindergarten days or First Grade Days better, he said, "First grade days!" So that is good. It was nice not to rush away from my two free hours to go pick him up at 11:30.
Did you hear????
I know I will take this statement back mid July; but, I can't wait till school is done for the year and we can be outside more. I love the summer months. I am really lucky to have a great group of girlfriends (some will love me for the pics. on this post) who enjoy park hopping with their kids. It's so much more fun for mommy to go to the park with mommy friends. It's funny how I can stay at the park over two hours when I have some mommy friends with me. If I go alone, my kids are lucky to get to play 30 minutes before I am ready to move on.
Adventures of a Flake shares this outside fun idea... Throw some large paper up on an outdoor upright surface and let the kids create outdoors.

One of my favorite activities when I taught was during an earth unit. We would discuss volcanoes and make our own. The kids loved this simple to do and easy to set-up activity.
Well, the Have You Filled a Bucket Contest ended yesterday. I loved reading every one's bucket filling thoughts on their blogs and facebook posts. It sounds like through blogging and facebooking we managed to fill many buckets. Thanks to all who participated... Unfortunately, we can only have two winners. I used a random number generator to pick the two winners... Below are the random numbers: 18 & 8!
