Emerald finished her first year at school! We made it through TK with her loving going and only missing a few days here and there and only a couple times of getting her to school late. She is so excited for the summer break before she starts Kindergarten.
We have tried so hard to book the Summer full of fun things for the girls. Summers are now becoming a treasured time to spend with the girls since Emerald started school. Right after the last day of school Emerald came home to a few little goodies I had picked up from the dollar section at Target and a sign I made saying how excited we are to spend the summer to party.
The first weekend was Memorial weekend and the girls got to be in a parade that my parents retirement community put together. The girls had so much fun.
We of course cant forget the last time we get to go to disneyland before our passes expire for the summer. The last time we were able to go and Lolo (the girl’s grandma) was able to come with us, unfortunately Brock had to work and was not able to join which Violet was so sad about.
Our first big trip for the summer is one to Florida where we’re going to see all of my siblings and their families. ( I will have a blog and pictures coming soon for this trip) The girls are super excited about this trip since we don’t get to see their cousins that often. We also have several weekends booked with camping and weekends at the beach. I’m also planning on switching the girl’s bed to bunk beds so Violet will be moving out of her toddler bed😬. ( I will write something about this too since there will no longer be a crib in our house/sad moment for mommy)
We also got to just participate in a picnic that one of the moms put together for Emeralds TK class to get together during the summer it was so sweet. They had a pinata and even a face painter and we did a potluck picnic.
This school year has been such a fun year for Emerald. She was so lucky to have such an amazing teacher. Miss Creekmore really was one of the best teachers for Emerald. I also love how her teacher at the end of the year made books of all the different special projects that the kids had made throughout the year. She also gave each of her students a special award describing each of their personalities.
While Emerald was at school it was so nice getting to spend one-on-one time with Violet and I am loving watching these girls grow up. Sometimes I battle between being sad that they’re getting older and being happy and excited that they get to have so many wonderful experiences. It is so much fun getting to be there Mom.
