Winding Down.

We’re winding down from another school year, and couldn’t be much busier. Between book fairs, vacation plans, and school functions, we’re about beat.

Last weekend we had the chance to blow off some steam at the school Spirit Festival. I was really looking forward to it, even though we had to get up very early on a Saturday morning after being out late the night before.

The rain that threatened to ruin it the night before held off, but it was chilly. Still, the weather didn’t dampen our spirits. We sat on our tailgate and watched the parade, then walked on up to the school to enjoy rides all day.

The sun eventually came out and made me regret eschewing the sunscreen that morning. Oh, well. Live and learn.

Laurel got “a lot of free reign” as she later told a friend. Greg took Ethan on the kiddie rides and took both kids on the ferris wheel as I watched the entertainment on the main stage and visited with other parents I knew.

It was a great day with great people, and a great all-district event to cap off the school year.
