School’s Out for Summer

Remember that little ditty from Alice Cooper? (confession: I had to look it up to remember/know who sung it)

Today was the last day of first grade for Krystal. I welcomed her off the bus by calling her a second grader, which thrilled her. Ah, the simplicity.

I’ve been wracking my brain for several weeks, trying to think of a sustainable “Last Day of School” ritual that we could start. In the end, I fell back on the one I grew up with, that we continued mostly by virtue of inertia. And even though I brought my camera with me, it wasn’t till we were just about done that I remembered it hanging off my body to take a photo!

Ice Cream

Yep, that was dinner. We’ll see if it becomes a yearly tradition right around this time next year. Unless you Internets can come up with something we like better!

  1. Ice cream for dinner? Sounds good to me! We didn’t have any end of school year traditions. Thanks for suggesting it! I have a couple of years to wait, so I may forget though.
