This has been a bit of a busy week. Most of our weeks entail me running around, mind you, but we had some major events this week. Major for us, anyway, the world didn’t stop spinning and CNN didn’t call. We did however, have two girls Fly Up from Brownies to Junior Girl Scouts and it was Elle’s last day of pre-school today. Definitely a time for pictures!
The Flying Upceremony in Girl Scouts can be a simple affair or a major ceremony. The leaders for Mita and Enu planned this ceremony perfectly. There was food, goodie bags, some official ceremony of the pledge, the promise and a song and of course the girls walking across the stage (pretend bridge) receiving their badges and pins they earned over the last year.
Elle attended her last day of pre-school. Last day EVER! She starts Kindergarten in August and will be a full-time student for about two decades. She is excited of course, but I will miss our days at home with just the two of us. Don’t tell the other girls, but sometimes Elle and I would just watch TV or eat popcorn after the kids went to school. It was like having our own little Neverland, where she didn’t have to share with her sisters and I didn’t have to make her share! Here Elle is after I picked her up today. They did clown face-painting as a last day of school activity.
Not to leave Meg out…she had to decorate a potato as a book character this week. She choose to make a Hermione Grainger potato (big surprise there!). Hermione Potato Head was dressed in purple netting for the Yule Ball. I failed as a mother and didn’t get a picture taking of said potato before Meg took it to school. No big deal you say? Just take one when she brings it home from school? I would if some potato mashing bully hadn’t wrecked poor Potato Hermione at school! Ruffians. Anyway, Meg is confident she can repair her creation, so I may have a photo in the next few days!
How was your week?
