It's the 10th of June!
Also known as my last day of school!!!!
Students finished yesterday and the last day for teachers was today.
Both girls slept in until after 8 today....let's hope they keep that up the rest of the summer!
(I can dream, right?!?!)
We had a staff breakfast to kick off our Teacher Work Day, and we celebrated the end of school with mimosas!
Then I headed back to school to clean up my classroom & take down projects from this year's students. This is a Tessellation project that I do the at the end of the school year:

When I got home, Claire wanted to play Marching Band:
Kate's block tower....the girl LOVES to play with blocks:
Because the girls slept in so late, they didn't fall asleep during "room time", so per tradition, we headed into town to look at the Grad Night at a local high school:
When we got home, it was snack time. This is the girls favorite snack.
Apple slices, Ritz crackers and peanut butter with sprinkles on top.
Getting my empty jars ready to make some more Homemade Strawberry Jam!
While watering our garden, Kate & I noticed we have our very first tomato!
It's tiny & it's green....but that means tomatoes are on their way!
Guess who fell asleep on the ottoman? At 5:00pm?
Kate thought that called for some Bunny Ears.
Sisterly Love, right there.
Happy 10th.
Happy Friday.
Happy Summer!!!!!

We are headed out to dinner to celebrate school being out for Summer!!!!!!!!!
I am so, so, so, SO excited that Summer is here!


  1. one question...can i come over? hahaha...champagne, snacks, jam....you are killing me!!! you always have the sweetest pictures!!
    have a great weekend friend!

  2. i so meant to do this today...uhhh...it didn't happen. oh well. maybe next month. have a great weekend! :)

  3. I just used my last jar of jam today! Yay for the perfect amount, now we just need it to warm up here so we can get some yummy strawberries! Happy Summer!

  4. Woo hoo!!! What a great way to kick off your summer. Your girls are so cute. Love that l'il bit fell asleep on the ottoman. Too cute!

  5. Love the bunny ears! And my dad recently learned a trick for the tomato plants. He hangs red metal Christmas ornaments on the tomato plant and that way the bird thinks it is a red tomato and comes to peck at that but then flies off when he realizes he can't get anything. It has saved his green tomato from getting peck at.

  6. Yeah for the last day of school! I love summer too!

  7. Congrats on summer! I made strawberry jam last week. It's my favorite time of year. We've got a couple of green tomatoes too and I can't wait for them to turn red. I love the last photo. Gotta love sisters.

  8. I dream everyday that my kiddos will sleep later than 7am! I know someday it will come true right?? Fun set!

  9. Oh I love the jam jars! My apricots should be ripe enough soon to make some also. And, love the green in the tomato pic. Fun set!
