Last day

Well, it's a wrap! Wednesday was E's last day of Kindergarten. They had a little party to celebrate...





E had a great year, and a fabulous teacher. Sooo proud of my girl. Next stop...First Grade!!

Water fun and a night out for me!

Late yesterday afternoon at the playground...



Today at Mystic Lakes...





And tonight I got a girls' night out! I went with a couple friends (moms of classmates of E's) to The Paint Bar. We drank beer and wine and painted Hawaiian beach scenes. Very fun. My friend Evelyn's husband bravely took our 3 kiddos out to the movies and kept them entertained while we were gone.


Nice weekend so far. I have been working what feels like a lot of hours at my now 8 week old job. I like it, but the pace is pretty fast, and, by this Friday I was beyond exhausted. So it's felt great to have some beach time, as well as some fun grown up time.

The day Elizabeth played hookey

So our friend Maria asked if she could take E to Canobie Lake Park yesterday. Maria has had an exchange student, Fan, staying with her this year. Fan will be returning to China tomorrow, so Maria really wanted to do something special with both girls before then. Elizabeth has grown to like Fan a lot over the past 9 months, so I was happy to let them spend some fun time together. I had to work and couldn't go, but Maria and Fan took plenty of great pictures:)

Field Day

On Friday, Elizabeth's school had Field Day, where they got to play games and have races outside most of the day. I think this was E's favorite day of the year; she has been talking about it all weekend!

I wasn't there, but my friend Evelyn (Mom to E's buddy Casey) was and took lots of great pictures :)





Just a little over two more weeks left of Kindergarten...They go practically until July this year because of all the snow days we had. I am going to be sad when it's over. I love E's teacher, and she's had such an awesome year. And wow, 1st grade just sounds so much older than Kindergarten!


I wasn't going to, but I couldn't resist...

Yes, of course I bought her soccer picture...

The pool is open!

It's been almost 90 here all weekend, and we've been spending most of our time down at the pool... We are big fans of summer here in our little household:)







One thing I've noticed is how much bigger Elizabeth is, and how much older she looks this year. She will be 6 next month! Yikes, how did that happen???

Class field trip (that I didn't get to go on)

Yesterday, my girl's class went on a field trip to Davis Farms. I didn't get to go as a chaperone, but Maria did:) It was hot out! Yes, in typical New England style, we jumped from 55 degree weather to 90 degree weather overnight.

Maria stayed over at our house the night before so she and Miss E could get to school bright and early for the big day...


There was a splash park at the zoo!

Looks like it was a great day! Thanks for braving the heat, Maria, and chaperoning. I know it meant a lot to Elizabeth (and to me)!

Here is the part where I confess to having some jealousy and some mommy guilt that I didn't go. Being just one month into a new job makes it hard to take any time away. I've been working some long hours, which is good for my job performance, but not always so good for my mommy performance. I look back over the past year and I have in no way been as involved with E's class as I wanted or planned to be. Hopefully next year when she's in first grade (!!!!!) I'll be more settled in this job and will be able to do more in the classroom.
