So last week was the last day of school for the year and to say my kids were excited is an understatement. They were equally excited but also a little sad because they LOVED their teachers this year. We've been looking forward to summer for awhile, but I have to agree with them, I'm a little sad to say goodbye to their teachers this year because they have been so great to us. And that's where I put a little plug in for their school because we truly are lucky. I hear SO MUCH about people complaining about the school their kids go to and honestly? It's what you make of it. I really try to be present in the class as much as they can, I have never hesitated to email or stop in and talk to the teacher with any issue I have ever had and I make sure their teachers know that I appreciate them. I do. They have my kids for long hours day in and day out, and they are a big influence in their lives. I really appreciate knowing that they would do anything for my kids while they were in their care and that means the world to me. So yeah, enough sap.
But now that school is over, we are going on our BIG TRIP to the Wisconsin Dells this week! If you don't remember the excitement of this, go HERE and read that post. The kids still have no idea where we are going, only some ridiculously vague clues I've given them and they can hardly stand it. I think I am more excited just seeing their faces as we pull up to Great Wolf Lodge and they realize we are going to a water park for two days! I also booked us on a Upper Dells boat tour, and Jackson made an off hand comment that he'd like to go to a Ripley's Believe It or Not museum (he's in love with the books) so time and money dependent, we might do that too. We'll see. I'm kind of afraid of the cost of food and just the trip in general so I didn't book that in advance yet. But it's going to be so much fun. And it's Penelope's first time spending the night away from home, which is stressing me out a little but I'm sure it's going to be just fine. I can't wait to post pictures and tell you how the trip went. Soon!
