School's out for Summer!

Well, summer vacation is finally here, and AK couldn't be happier. She had started to cry about school the last couple of weeks because apparently 5 year old girls are as mean to each other as teenage girls are. There was all sorts of bickering and uninviting to birthday parties between AK and her little circle of girlfriends. Why is it so hard for a group of girls to be friends? I remember the same sorts of problems in high school. I had 2 close girlfriends, and it seemed like each week one of us would be excluded from the group, and it was really hard when it was your week.

Anyway...this is not what I was going to blog about, but if you can shed any wisdom on the above topic fell free to COMMENT! :)

To celebrate the last day of school, AK's Mimi planned a camp out in our front yard. Mimi has been AK's babysitter/2nd mother since AK was 3 months old. She is a big part of our family. AK and Mimi had all sorts of fun games and activities planned. Including ghost stories and pranks to be played on N, the only boy attending.

Well, the weather wasn't too cooperative because at 2:00 on the afternoon of the camp out, the bottom dropped out of the sky. The camp out was not canceled, but the camping out part was. So now the festivities were moved to inside my house. Joy. Also, N decided not to attend, so the pranks had to be put on hold.

The festivities started around 4:30, and 5 meltdowns (by MY child only) and tons of fun later they all collapsed and fell asleep. I think it was actually around 10:00, which I found amazing! They all slept through the night, and no parents had to be called in the middle of the night to get their homesick child. AK had the time of her life, and is already planning a 2nd camp out, with hopes of actually camping out, for the end of the summer!

Here are some Kodak moments...
