End of the school year fun

It's a bit fuzzy....it's a fuzzy caterpillar....made out of Oreo cookies and eaten by Madi's class on the last day of school. Some gummy worms were slithering around too.
Ben and Madi made these yummy posters to give their teachers on the last day of school.
There they are early in the morning getting ready to head out for one last day of school.

Our neighborhood pool opened up last week. One day after school we headed down there and had the whole pool to ourselves for a bit. The pool is only 6 houses down from ours and it's one of our favorite things about living here!

The posters turned out so well! I hope you are enjoying your first day of Summer vacation. I had a crazy, busy day scheduled today and then my car wouldn't start.... That is a way to slow down for sure. Atleast I got to the gym. Can I make a request for your amazing BBQ Beans? I tried to make them like yours on Saturday but they were lacking something??

I love the caterpillar. I wouldn't have thought of that!

The posters made me smile. "Sometimes I act like an air head" was my favorite saying. Kids tell it like it is. :)

What a great idea for the teacher.
I hope you don't mind, we may use your yummy poster idea for Josh's teacher. I think she would get a kick out of it.

Hi Jeni~
I love the caterpillar! I bet it was a hit at Madi's class. :) I love those cute posters your kids gave to their teachers! May I "steal" this idea? I think my kiddos would love to do this for their teachers! :)

I hope you are doing all right. I am praying for you! :)

Cute, cute, cute crafty things! I made the caterpillar for Bryce in Germany one time and also made frogs with it. Have you done those for the kiddos, too?
Glad you're getting some swim time in. It is so refreshing, isn't it?
How is the 1st week off going? Are B and M sleeping in? My B and C are and I love it! xo
