One down, Goodbye Summer

The last day of summer vacation for the kids I was trying
to keep it low key and hang inside the nice air conditioned house.
But they were bored out of their minds and I was tired of
them complaining. So I set up their kiddie pool.
It was actually bought to transplant our fish from
our fishtank but you know how everything
can get turned into a water toy.

I gave Little E his brand new side walk chalk and
told him not to get them wet. Well, Miss K wasn't present for those
instructions. I wasn't upset about it. The water and chalk kept
them occupied for almost two hours.

But the chalk didn't stay on the sidewalk. They used it as body paint!
I laughed and told them they looked like the
people from Avatar.

So the last day turned out to be quite fun for everyone. And I was
lucky enough to have worn out Little E and he fell asleep
waiting for bedtime.

So long last day of summer!
Hello to first day of school for my third grader and preschooler.

What cute pictures! I've been told that it makes great paint... by Diva. She hasn't painted herself though, she just paints the driveway.  It looks like they had a blast playing! You didn't tell the funny story about how it almost didn't come off.  I kept waiting and waiting for it... :-D I hope they have a wonderful first day! I can't believe summer is over it feels like it just started yesterday. And now it's almost fall, although that is my favorite time of year. I can't wait for the leaves to change and go apple picking.
