Busy Carefree Summer Days!

Goodness, it has been a month since Bug ended first grade with a bang! He missed the last 4 days of school due to a terrible virus. I joke that he was ready for summer and decided to take an early break. I did take him in on the last day for his awards ceremony and am happy to say that he received 4 awards! I took pictures and you can tell that even though he was happy about his awards, but that he felt so bad! So glad that he finally got better and we began our summer of no schedules and just having fun. I am happy to say that Bug finally learned to ride his bicycle without training wheels. That was such a big deal for him! He is so excited that he tells everyone he sees and you can tell just how proud of himself he is. (Not to mention, how proud Mommy and Daddy are too!) He has been participating in a reading camp twice a week, hopefully to help boost his reading skills. He is enjoying it, thank goodness. We have also been on a camping trip at a campground near our home. Bug brought along a friend for one night and they had such a good time riding bikes, playing basketball, playing on the playground and, of course, roasting marshmallows to make s'mores.! I just wish he would eat the marshmallows, but that is whole another post! He is enjoying sleeping in, going swimming with his friends and just having no schedule to worry about and getting him in overload. Mommy really enjoys spending this stress free time with him and sometimes makes me dread the grind of getting back to school. I wish he didn't have such a hard time at school, but at least I know that he will have an awesome teacher next year, who I know will take very good care of him and make sure that he has a very successful year. I am thankful that I have gotten to know the teachers at his school so well this past year and know that I won't have to worry about him when I start my job in August. Oh, did I mention that I have a new job? I will be working at another elementary school in our county. I really wanted to work at Bug's school, but this opportunity came and I just could not pass it up. I know that it will take some getting used too on both mine and Bug's part, but I feel confident that it will be okay. I hope everyone has a wonderful, carefree summer too!
