a wish cake
it is definitely time to celebrate! i am actually walking around spontaneously bursing into song (showtunes), grinning like a cheshire cat, and giggling to myself. well, it is the last day of school. i am still so much like a kid, to have three whole months ahead of me with no school leaves me feeling giddy and marvelously free.
of course i start out the summer with grandiose plans of adventures with the kids, art hours that last until the wee morning light, and spectacular organization projects going on throughout the house. i am a bit realistic however, by the time august rolls around i already know i will be going crazy with three teenagers sleeping in until after lunch, the revolving front door, and the fridge opening so often it wont even keep the milk cold. i won't be able to wait until we start a real schedule again. but for today, this minute, i can't contain my excitement.
i am celebrating these things:
two birthdays this week: hannah is 14! and amanda is a few years older than that tomorrow. happy days girls
marina graduating tomorrow where is that little red headed girl of mine? she's all grown up and ready to save the world.
heading to the oregon coast for a week long holiday right on the ocean. we are going whale watching and to the aquarium. its a long 16 hour drive to the coast, but the first view of the ocean always takes my breath away!
last day of school today and waiting for me in the mailbox was a fat little package from kari . . . oh i do love little unexpected surprises in the mail.
a tall glass of coke zero on pebble ice
and the art nest is only a couple of weeks away, i can hardly wait!
i'm about ready to start singing again and can't sit still at the computer another minute so i'm off to celebrate. . .
