Today marks a milestone. After three kids, I am finally finished with the joys of elementary school.
As I take a bow, I celebrate the countless poster board projects, cereal box planets, villages made out of blocks, teepees out of tinker toys, peeps dioramas, a working didgeridoo out of a pvc pipe, Halloween costumes, Valentine cards, field days, science fair projects, international nights, school band concerts, class parties as room mom including endless games, a spaghetti bowl of spiders and boxes and boxes and boxes of doughnuts and let’s not forget the field trips in hot, sweaty, loud, and headache inducing school buses – did I mention loud? In the approximately 30 trips as parent chaperone, I only lost a kid once (don’t judge me – you would have lost this one too ;))
It was wonderful. I will miss the hugs from the kids and all the sweet little faces.
