I should at least get to vote on this

This is a pretty big week in our house.

One kidlet is spending her last couple of days EVAH as a kindergartner and the other is is about to leave elementary school for good.

The house is starting to buzz as the girls realise that summer and the great expanse of nothing filled days lie ahead.

Lily also has the added excitement of turning eleven  (hah and you thought I couldn't bring myself to say it) on Thursday. She is having a sleepover on Saturday with some friends from swimming. Guess what they want to do? Yes, you are correct, they want to go to the pool. After that it's anyones guess, there has been chatter about dyeing their hair with cool aid, eating vast amounts of Chinese food, making bracelets, if I get a loom for my birthday, mummy, and a variety of other things. If the weather is crummy, which it could well be we are all going to the movies. She is so very excited.

All in all there are some massive milestones and somehow I didn't get to vote on any of them. How can I have an almost eleven year old? How can I have a child old enough to leave kindy for good? And what is up with Lily heading off to middle school? Tonight at swimming the mums of the 2 friends who will be sleeping over sat and talked and frankly we are all in shock. Sometimes I think it would be easier to be a dad, they seem to be oblivious.

Where the heck is my chocolate? I need a double helping right now.

You are a brave one with a slumber party. We have manage to go 14 years without one! We do late stays, but no sleepovers. Hope the weather cooperates. We are in Orlando and got rained out of blizzard beach today. Sorry you can't go to England this summer, but I was just talking to some people from England and they said the weather has been horrible all year long. Have fun this weekend!

Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comment! I feel your pain, I can't believe that I am going to have an 8th grader this fall! The time just flies by!

Good luck with the Koolaid hair dye. I have been told that our girls with dark tresses will not have the desired outcome. We used the lighter colored chalk with some success.

Happy summer fun!
