These two pictures above are from her very last day. The first one shows Anna with the teacher's assistant, Ms. Karen. The second one shows Ms. Rita handing out various papers to add to the load of stuff the kids got to take home that day. Ah, it was bittersweet for this mommy to see. Anna LOVED the sunglasses each of the kids got as a parting gift, and has insisted on wearing them out and about nonstop lately.
There were a few field trips leading up to the end of school. The pictures above are from the field trip to Ligon Outdoor Nature Center. The kids had tons of fun playing around in the woods, and especially loved the bubble machine, and the cookout they had for lunch. I, however, was miserable the whole time. At least it wasn't hot. But it was sticky, damp, and the bugs were RIDICULOUS! I think the kids still have a few marks from bug bites they got that day...and it was two weeks ago. Geesh! It's been a very wet summer so far, so I don't know why I was surprised. I'm glad we went though; it was a fun adventure for the kiddies. Anna's pre-school also had a special end of the year party/field trip to Crossroads Village that Anna was super excited about. I'll write about that next time, and share some adorable pics.
And finally, last weekend we had more visitors. Yay! Meghan and Rorie came for a long weekend visit, and we all had lots of fun. It was mostly a lot of outdoor/water activities to entertain the kiddos. The rest of the time was spent at the apartment with the kids "playing." Which means that Anna mainly did her own thing, and Rorie and Ben-Ben fought over various toys, and yelled at each other. But there were some sweet moments between the cousins too. They were very excited to see each other. Anna really wanted Rorie to stay and Benjamin to go home with Auntie Meghan, but in the end we decided to keep our own kids. :) Until next time, have a beautiful week!
