Last Day of School

Campbell and Bennett had their last day of school (aka Mothers Day Out) yesterday. We have a month break then they'll go back for a few weeks in the summer then have another break again before starting back up in the fall. So it doesn't technically feel like the end of school just yet since they'll be back in their same class with their same teachers. But it was the "last day" regardless.
I've said this before but I'm so thankful for this program. When we were dedicating Bennett at church on Sunday, our pastor said "If there's one thing this church does right, it's our children's ministry." And he is so, so correct. We walk in the building and there are always sweet people ready to greet us all by name. They talk to Campbell, say hi to Bennett and it just starts the day off right. I know some children don't have good drop-off experiences and I think this is their way to make everyone feel at home and loved and cared for.

Campbell and Bennett have always loved being there and I'm so grateful for the sweet people who are there, pouring love into these kids, teaching them about Jesus and having an overall fun day with them!! While my kids are having fun, I get to have some time for myself. A much needed break to run errands, do stuff around my house, or treat myself to shopping at the mall or a manicure. It's a win for all of us!
Campbell will officially start pre-school in the fall which is so crazy to me! It's the same days and hours but a different building and a more big boy environment. He will have a work book that he will learn from throughout the year and I know he's going to be excited about his new Mothers Day Out/Pre-School experience. 
So now we just need to find a way to keep ourselves entertained for the next four weeks!! I'm thinking multiple trips to Pops and Gammas's house will take place! I know Campbell and Bennett will be excited to go back for the summer session so they can be with their friends and teachers. And while they're there, I plan on parking myself at the pool with my Crystal Light and a good book. I'm a tiny bit excited for the break (can we talk about how annoying it is to make school lunches?) but I know we'll all be ready for the summer session to start! Thankful for another great year of Mothers Day Out!!
