Summer '06 In Full Swing

We have made it through the first two weeks of summer vacation! How many more to go?

We had our first slumber party! Popcorn and beauty supplies were abundant.

Jason brought back Princess Peach t-shirts from the Nintendo Store in New York City. Also, socks are no longer being matched.

Ava took her first photographs. (Those are Juli's paint spattered legs under the table.)

Speaking of Nintendo, Juliana and I have been logging a lot of time playing Animal Crossing together. It's quite addictive but hey, it's summer. I'm trying to chill out a bit.

Last Day of School!


Juliana received "outstanding achievement" awards in math, reading, writing, science and social studies. She also got an art award, a citizenship award, and was the only student in K5 with the perfect attendance award! (Of course she started in the middle of the year but I still think it was impressive to not miss a single day.) Ava and I came with to the end of the year picnic where all the kids stuffed thier faces with hot dogs, cookies, and jell-o. Today we are kicking off summer vacation with a bang. We're going to see "Over the Hedge" this afternoon and Juli will have a sleepover at Maddie's house for the first time. Woo for summer!

School's Out for the Summer

Well, technically next Tuesday is the last day, but last night was the end of the year party at Chuck E. Cheese's (otherwise known as Vegas for the underaged set.) Good times.

Juliana's Observation

"This butterfly ring says Made in China! Oh man, everything says that! China is always doing that..."
