School's Out For Summer!

Well, it's the last day of school, and I have a pizza party to get to. This school year flew by! I can't believe when September rolls around again that I'll have a 12th grader, a 9th grader, and a 3rd grader!

Today is a half a day, then I take LD off to a night at girl scout camp. Pick her up, and the day after that she goes off for a sleep over at a friend's house. I think it'll be a really busy summer.

We had our annual trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes yesterday. I cheated and put some pics from a couple of years ago on here. That's only because I didn't climb the dunes! I went up far enough to snap some photos and that was it!

I sat on the blanket and knitted some more booties. You can see how dangerously close some ice cream got to my yarn in one of the photos. Carrie was there, and so was our other knitting buddy.

LD had a blast, and so did I. It was really hard to find some pics of LD that I could show off, because she was surrounded by friends. Isn't that how it should be, though?

I have a pic of Melanie the other knitter, and Carrie. A pic looking up the dunes, and a view from the top are also hanging around. The pics bordered in orange are from yesterday.


Sorry for such a quick post, but like I said: "Yay, it's Summer!" I have to rush back to that pizza party, and get moving.

I hope everyone has a spectacular summer. I plan to, and I also plan to get those UFOs in order!

The dunes are amazing! I went there once when I was in Virginia and it was just beautiful. Glad to hear the start of your summer is a great one. May many ice cream days and parties come after!

Wow! A 12th grader! Time flies, doesn't it? :)

Happy summer!

I'd be the one sitting on the blanket knitting too...

Ice cream too close to your knitting?? At least you got to knit! I'm not wishing time to go faster, but no one had you jumping up to do their bidding every minute. I'll be glad when the kids are older... =) Nice pics!

Wow, look at those dunes! Gorgeous. I hope your summer is fun but not so busy that you don't get to knit a whole bunch!

It's quite a workout to walk through deep sand, uphill. Knitting is more fun. Enjoyed your pictures.

Hiking the dunes will wear you out!
It's really beautiful up there though. That first hill is a toughy.
Good luck on the UFO's

I love your pictures!!! What gorgeous views!!!

Hmmm...how do you feel about your middle one going to 9th grade in the fall? My oldest boy is and I'm scared to death! My little one is only starting preschool!

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog...when you said "THE Sleepy Eyes Knits", I thought I'd faint with happiness. I'm really glad you like my podcast...it means the world to me!

Happy Knitting! Gina : )

Wow you guys are out early! We're not out until the 21st. I just survived my son's senior prom, if school was out too, I'd have myself committed...

Jane said...

Lucky, lucky you! We've got two more weeks to go until summer vacation.

It seems strange that your school year ends half way throught the year but then of course because it is summer there!

Children grow up way too quickly :(
