Claire de Lune

My mom called me today and wanted me to post K playing the piano.  So I tried 4 times and it wouldn't download.  I'll have to try something else tomorrow.  Sorry, Mom.  But I won't give up yet.

The last day of school was...short.  The kids got ready in record time...they didn't have to make their lunches and were up at 6:30.  Then after scriptures we headed out the door.  We thanked each teacher for all her hard work this year and then F and I were off.  

By the time we got back to the school for A's classroom awards, the entire school was out sighning yearbooks.  It was crazy.  I was mobbed.  I thought 'My kids must be popular so their friends want my autograph.'  And then one little girl asked me to sign by my picture in her yearbook!  'Huh?' I told her I wasn't in the yearbook and she let out a disappointed sigh (she let me sign it anyway).  Half the kids were my kids' friends but the other half thought I was a teacher. Oh how funny!  A's teacher was super cute, as always.  She had 'candy bar' awards for each of her students.  So cute.  We all laughed and clapped.  

At 12:27 it started raining.  Then 2 min. later the hail came.  I jumping in the car and went to pick them up from the bus stop.  I am so grateful for garages.  I don't like getting wet unvoluntarily.  Now they're all home for the entire summer.  Let the fun begin.

I started the fun with taking Lisa J.'s 'points' idea from last summer.  I made my charts and posted them on the corkboard.  I am so excited.  The kids less so but maybe they'll get excited after they understand what it's all about.  Thanks, Lisa.  You seriously have the best ideas.
