Lex started fifth grade a couple weeks ago. FIFTH GRADE! How is she old enough to be in fifth grade? How am I old enough to have a fifth grader?! This is madness!
At Back to School Night I was talking to one of her friend’s moms and commented on how fast the summer went by. At the beginning of break we created a whole list of things we wanted to do, very few of which we actually completed. It almost felt like a wasted summer until I thought about all the things we DID get done and I felt much more productive.
Spent weekends (and weeks) with the grandparents and cousins
Went to Disney World
Traveled to Portland for a wedding and reunion with my high school besties
Took an anniversary trip to Niagara Falls
Visited the Green Animals Topiary Garden
Toured the Newport Mansions
Enjoyed the Cliff Walk
Got Lex’s ears pierced
Celebrated a friend’s engagement
Celebrated another friend’s wedding in Tiverton
Bought a second house
Spent a copious amount of time in the pool
Not a summer wasted after all. Let’s all take a cue from Anderson and snooze.
