As the school year winds down, I find myself getting clucky again about all of the lasts I'm experiencing as the Mother of a Kindergartner. The big 100 day celebration (which was busy planning but super fun plus I got to be the "official photographer" and got to take each Kindergartner's 100-day picture), the Spring Egg Hunt yesterday and soon the big Dallas Zoo fieldtrip.
I hosted the Spring Egg Hunt here at the house. A first and last for me and I'm so glad I got to do it. We hid 230 numbered eggs (it was a "math hunt") in our front yard (and my gracious neighbor's), walked the kids from the school to our house, helped them find their eggs 1-10, let them play with confetti eggs -- a first for many of them, which was a real treat! -- then they had snack and headed back to school. It was busy -- it takes a village! -- but so fun and the kids had a blast.
It's such a cute little tradition. I remember volunteering for Natalie's egg hunt (at a classmate's house) and, though I hate to admit it, I have NO idea where I was for Elle's. I seriously don't remember it. Isn't that horrible? I did have Anna Sofia at home, but still. Oh well, it all ended on a high note. Anna Sofia was chuffed and my last chance to enjoy the Kindergarten Spring Egg Hunt was a success indeed!.
On a totally unrelated note, this blog is 8 years old today. I can honestly say, it has been a wonderful project for me. Thank you for coming along for the ride.
