The last days of the 2016-2017 school year.

Last Tuesday, May 23rd, both of the kids went into their rooms to get dressed for school.  They each selected their own clothes and put them on while I was in the kitchen packing lunches.   They came out of their rooms at the same time.

Elliott was delighted and Spencer was disgusted that they were wearing the exact same outfit. 
Seriously.  Exact same shorts and exact same shirt.  What are the chances that they would each select the same thing without knowledge of what the other was doing?
At work that day I took a packet of paperwork to a kid in 3rd grade and when I went into his classroom one of my other kids asked if I would sign his yearbook.  I said of course I would and then he opened to this page and told me to sign there. 
Look!  I made the year book.  I don't think that has ever happened before.  In 13 years I'm pretty sure this is a first.  Maybe it's not though and I'm just not aware of it.  That's kind of horrifying to think about. 
Spencer wanted to try his bath bombs again on Tuesday night.  He put in four of them and then they didn't all dissolve, so he had a lumpy bath. 

Elliott took a bubble bath in our tub at the same time. 
Wednesday the 24th was my last day of work before a week and a half off.  I had been working on my end of the year to-do list for weeks and had it down to this for my last day.  This took me all day.  Mostly because the resource teacher made several huge mistakes and I had to fix them before I could do my job.  And yes, I had to fix them.  He's not returning because his contract wasn't renewed and he didn't care at all that it was his mistake and that I literally could not write my part without first fixing what he had done. 

This is the only picture I took at home on Wednesday. 
On Thursday the 25th Elliott and I stayed home all day.  It was glorious.  

That night, after dinner, we all drove to the airport to meet my brother Nathan, sister-in-law Kendra, and niece Bella during their layover.  I got a glass of wine, the kids got gelato, Michael stuck with a boring glass or water and Nathan, Kendra and Bella ate dinner.  

Nathan tricked me into eating a bite of radish.  He claims he had no idea they were radishes.  

We got to spend a tiny bit more than an hour with them .

Up next: the very last day of school- 3rd grade and preschool.
