Splash into summer......

For the first time in a very long time, our school ended before Memorial Day. I am determined to make this a great summer for all of us so we spent a good part of the holiday in the pool! Sami had a a great time and didn't even aruge when I slathered sun tan lotion on her multiple times throughout the day.

She started out a little skittish and used her float when jumping in with some of the cousins:

We are making some big plans for the rest of the summer& hope to include the zoo, baseball games, picnics, 5Ks & the beach!

Until next time,

End of the school year!

Thursday was the last day of second grade for Samantha. She had such a great year. She learned so much, but equally important, she LOVED her teacher. Mrs. Kibble is so wonderful! We were so lucky that she agreed to come out of retirement for this one year. Samantha was thrilled to have had the opporunity to have one of the same teachers that her brother had.

Sami & Mrs. Kibble:

Cameron & Mrs. Kibble - last day of kindergarten in June 2005


Tomorrow is Memorial Day. Samantha has some special things to take to the cemetary. Not sure what else to say about that.

Until next time,

Seriously..... This is a job??

Professional Hula Hooper??? Really?

Anyway, Sami & I went to a demonstration tonight at the public library. It was pretty entertaining. Stuff I could never do! Like this:

Sami had a great time trying her hand at some of the tricks:

Me & my girl on Mother's Day - one of the most bittersweet holidays for me.

Next time, I will update re: the lost roll of film! We've got too much homework to finish up tonight for me to do a long post!
