And Patrick is gone for the weekend for the Indy 500. Essentially, a weekend of drinking and telling dirty jokes while occasionally watching the cars drive in circles.
I get the offspring alllll alone this weekend. A taste tester for the summer vacation.... WHY was I so excited about school being over? Ah yes. No more answering to the "man." We can do our own thing. Sleep in (sort of) and be dirty and lazy if we want.
Aside, of course, from the 2 vacations, 2 long camping weekends, day camp and other various outings already covering our summer calendar. Which is why I am SO glad we don't do summer sports. We can save the rigorous scheduling for the school year. Summer is about chillin around the house as much as possible.
Last night was Evan's preschool's "Going to Kindergarten" celebration. ADORable. Little kids shaking and dancing and singing. Very cute, and nobody cried onstage! Miraculous!
Even Justin got out of his verrrrry rude funk that he was in all afternoon. It stemmed from a small upset at school (very minor, I've talked to the teacher) and he just went with it. He ended up doing a 180 and being happy while watching the preschool program. THANK YOU GOD. I so didn't want it to be clouded by his antics.
Corinne danced and clapped and "YAYyyyed" through out the show, as well. And cried when the kids were done! But they had cookies, so all was well fairly quickly.
And that's that. Evan is sitting here, waiting to go onto Nick Jr. and I have more laundry to fold (joy) so I have to go.
But tell me again, how is it possible that he is starting kindergarten in the fall????
