lasts & firsts
last day of school - first day of summer vacation! wednesday the girls had a wonderfully fun last day of school. i'm still kind of wondering where the whole year went. it was nice that stan had to work a little later, so we were able to take the girls to school together, and go out to lunch as a family when they got out.
it was one of those days where we got to think back on all of the events of the year. i am so thankful for all of the new friends they made this year, and how welcoming the families and staff were to our family. it always makes you a little nervous for your kids to make all new friends in a new school. we were so blessed to meet so many wonderful families and teachers... not to mention starting all of the fun new traditions at the new school. i love it when a plan comes together!
after school we went to the pet store and picked up a few more fishies for the pond just for kicks. emma made sure to explain to torrey exactly how she should go about the releasing process. pretty dang funny.
then we headed out to a friend's 40th birthday party. love a party where all of the families are there too. the kids had a great time. anytime you can fit almost 40 people in a restaurant with kids and maintain some kind of sanity, is a fabulous time!
yesterday our new bikes were all done being assembled, and we went on our first family bike ride. the girls made it for a 10 mile ride! i was pretty darn impressed with them. although i can now see why people wear those cushy bottomed bike pants! i'll be investing in some of those very soon!
