It has become a family tradition to celebrate the unofficial end of summer with friends the weekend before school starts. (You can see last summer’s celebration here) So, I packed my Costco cart full of cook-out necessities (burgers, dogs, buns, beer, and fruit), and we invited a ton of friends. Most are families who go to Peyton’s school (and went to high school with David, small world). I think the ratio ended up being one kid to ever adult. We might have even been outnumbered at one point. But that’s the way we like it.
Today, the play kitchen looks like it survived the purge (and I mean barely survived), and I keep finding beads and other art table paraphernalia throughout the downstairs area, but I consider those signs that the kids had a blast!
School starts tomorrow for Miss Peyton! She couldn’t be more excited!! Happy Monday!
