School's Out For The Summer!!

Today is my girls' last day of school!!! They are very excited! They love school but it's time for a break and some relaxation. It's a tough day though, it's my oldest daughter's last day in her elementary school-unbelieveable!

We've got lots of fun things planned for the summer. I told the girls we'd make a list today of all the things we want to do-course my oldest chimed in right away with "go to Hawaii". Sounds like we might have a luau this summer :)

We've got a few camping trips planned, a trip to Hershey Park, some sports camps, visiting friends and lots of swimming and playing.

We're starting off our fun tomorrow with a visit to a house they are building for Home Extreme Makeover. We love this show and they are in our area this week-so exciting!! We were on pins and needles yesterday waiting to find out where the house is-all we knew was it was in our area somewhere. Last night, we found out it was about an hour away-not too bad and I got all the info on where to park and get the shuttle bus. Sounds like it's very organized. We can't wait!!

We've had lots of exciting things happen in the past week
6th grade graduation (sniff, sniff, the girls all looked beautiful but so grown up)
bridging from Brownies to Juniors (my 8 yr old was so excited)
the baby's first haircut (well, just a trim, his bangs were so long, I didn't want to cut his hair but when his sister put his bangs in a ponytail, I figured it was time)
but I can't share any pictures :( Our computer is out being fixed and I'm on the old one that is
sssssooooooo ssssllllllooooowwwwww!!
Very annoying!
It's so old, I can't put my memory stick in so hopefully the new one will be back soon and I'll be able to share lots of pictures!

Have a great week!!!

Hey Dawn! Congrats on the beginning of a fun summer! It was fun to see you may go to Hershey Park. Kim and I flew to Pennsylvania when we were 11 years old to visit our grandparents who lived out there. While there, we went to Hersheys and it was such a highlight for me in which I'll never forget!

Knowing you, I bet you've got a lot of fun planned for your kids this summer!

I read the title of your blog, "7 All Together", and thought what a cute name and that's a lot of people, then I realized, holy smokes that will be us by Christmas time...I love it!:-) My kids are on year-round so they are still in for another week and a half, we're anxious for the break too!

Hope your day is great! I'm going to go read some more of your posts!:-)
