We are all a little sad here that our summer vacation is coming to an end.
But (shhh......don't tell anyone I told you this, okay) I'm also kind of glad we will be getting back into a routine. I think we had way too loosey goosey a summer - no plans and consequently I did not get many of the projects done I wanted to get done. But oh well, that's water under the bridge.
So Baby Bee starts Middle School on Thursday and I go back next Monday for training and meetings. My students coming the following Thursday. (It's kind of weird this year with Baby Bee and I starting in totally different weeks.)
Uh oh - I digressed.
Well, we had a big old slumber party here Friday night and Baby Bee invited over her 6th grade buddies from elementary school. We had pizza and popcorn and pop! (I'm not from the midwest, but some of my nieces and nephews from Minnesota say pop when they are talking about what we in California call soda and I love it.)
Have you ever popped M & Ms in hot popcorn?
(pop the M&Ms in AFTER you've popped the popcorn)
The candy gets all melty and yummy and the hot buttery popcorn with the chocolate makes a delicious treat. Worker Bee - our resident purist - does not like this treat, but us girls do! I think it was the perfect way to spend that last free weekend with so many changes happening soon for our Baby Bee.
wouldn't one of you like to come up here and help get me organized?
I really need your help!
(and please note the stash of fast food coupons - 'fraid we'll be living on that stuff the first few days after school starts)
