Sarah and Emily’s last day of preschool was June 2nd. During the school year, they made some beautiful drawings, paintings and craft projects in Miss Lynn’s class. They learned to sit quietly during circle time and wait for their turn to speak; walk in a crooked line out to the playground; sing numerous songs; eat lunch as part of a large group AND clean up after themselves.
We drove to Chicago in early June, stopping for the night at Uncle Jeff’s house. We played hide and seek—Uncle Jeff hid up on the roof.
Tim and I left the girls with Grandma for a few days while we escaped to New Harmony, Indiana to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Sarah and Emily weren’t thrilled, but they had a great time with Grandma and Uncle Eric.
We had a nice time in Chicago. The girls spent evenings in front of the television watching the same 3 episodes of The Dumb Bunnies and reading Franklin books.
After we came back home, we attended a wedding—the girls’ first. They didn’t recognize the bride with her hair up, wearing white gown, but they listened intently and loved wearing their new dresses. During the young couple’s first dance at the reception, Emily turned to me and said, “Isn’t that sweet?”
