One day more

  • It's the last day of school.  I am so happy that one child is finished with this year and so sad that the other one is leaving such a perfect teacher/classroom experience.  *sigh*
  • I was so anxious about how naptime would go this year, as we're down to just one napper.  I assumed the middle two would spend the afternoon tearing each other apart until the eldest got home.  Instead, they became best buddies and played together so well.  Naturally now I'm moony about the fact that the Kindergartner will be in school all day next year and so this little window of sweet afternoon playtime is at an end.  
  • Also, our favorite preschool teacher is moving.  CAN NOTHING STAY THE SAME?  (Answer: no.)
  • My parents recommended the 25th anniversary special of Les Miserables, which I thought I'd watch while folding laundry.  The six-year old came in and started asking lots of questions.  "That man went to prison for 20 years for stealing a loaf of bread.  Javert wants to take him back to prison.  Uh, the foreman fired Fantine because... he didn't like her.  Uh, she's working on the street... selling things.  Uh, she's dying, but that nice man will take care of Cosette.  Uh, Mama's crying because the music is so pretty and she's emotional about the end of the school year.  So, you want to watch Clutch Powers?"
