School’s out! Well my daughter’s school is out and soon many of your children will have their last day too, are you excited? The last day of school is an important milestone, it means another year down and a new grade on the horizon. In our house it is a time to celebrate! Anya will be going to the 3rd grade and I can hardly believe it, seriously I remember KG like it was yesterday. I’m so proud of her! Not only academically did she do great, but she adapted to a new school after attending the same school for 7 years (she was at the previous school since daycare), made new friends, faced challenges like a pro, and grew into a lovely 3rd grader! So we must celebrate and we did!
We went strawberry picking on the last day of school along with a fun evening filled with crafting at a couple shops in our area and hitting the bookstore late night. The next day we went to a quaint little town called Solomon’s Island and walked around just enjoying the beautiful day. Take a look at the pictures, we had a to of fun!
I think we need to celebrate more! Life is so short and the years are flying by aren’t they? So why not celebrate life and these milestones like finishing another school year. Celebrating doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive. I spent about $40 bucks tops for those two days! Here are some ways to celebrate the end of the year that won’t break your budget:
- Have a picnic
- Go berry picking
- Catch a movie, better yet go the drive in
- Cook a special dinner and dessert
- Host a sleepover with a few of your kid’s close friends and make it special
- Host an end of the year party
- Go camping
- Go to an amusement park (look for coupons online)
- Take a quick daytrip
- Go for a hike
- Soak in some rays at the pool, beach or lake
- Get them a small gift that commemorates the year
Whatever, you do make it special and have fun! Get excited about celebrating the end of the year and let your kids know how proud you are of their accomplishment!
