Summertime . . . and the Livin's Easy

Today is the last day of school.































I think the twins speak for us all.




Dinner last night: spaghetti, garlic toast, green salad

Wow! Braden's last day of school is June 29th. A Tuesday. How lame is THAT?! (they go back Sept 7th)

Sweet sprinkler!

And as a side note, I am now officially wierded out - The day you posted you had meatloaf the night before? So did we. (Only we had it with sidekick noodles and apple pie for dessert)
The day you posted pulled pork sandwhiches? So did we! Guess what we ate for dinner last night.. Yup! Spagetti, garlic toast and salad!!
If you tell me you had pierogies and sausage on Wednesday night I'll faint! :P
Seriously.. kinda freaky! (But neat!)

We've still got a couple weeks before school gets out. But we're also looking forward to sprinklers...as soon as it stops raining.

My kids did the same thing this morning!

I like that sprinkler, too.

Looks like fun. I wish school was out here. We have until June 10.

I agree. It says it all! I love the picture.

I'm all for being a protective mommy, but honey, I don't think they need the life preserver swimsuits to play in the sprinkler.

OMG, sooooo cute!!!!! I love that the sprinkler is a little John Deere tractor!!!

Cole and Bella get out of school in a couple weeks!

Why is school out so early for you? Is that weather-related (warmer now, and cooler in August?)
Just curious?

Good question, Carmen. As far as I know, the school year up here has always ended in May (even when I was a kid). Most schools start back up in late August; some in early September. I assume that it's because our summers are so short, and we want to maximize our time in the good weather up here.

Many families need their kids in May to help with the fishing boats, fishing sites, and farms (yes, we do have them up here!).

That's a cool sprinkler! We had a day of fun with the hose ourselves - summer is wonderful!
