The kindergarten sold and bought "goods" or a "Service" with money they received for good behavior or profits from their store.
(Jaime's teacher gave the helpers "behavior bucks" so Adeline got to go shopping too, she looted! Jaime sold all of his cookie kits and bought mostly food, so it was a good thing she did)
Most popular, hair streaking stall!
Walking home we got Eis Tony (the Gelato truck who stops outside our house every day at dinner time, if Tony weren't so nice it would be easier to not buy his tasty treats, Also Jake and I remember the overpriced popsicle trucks of the US and figure indulge them in a 1 Euro cone)
The music concert (the night of field day... so exhausted, poor babes)
The Last Day!
Jaime insisted that he wanted to give his teachers flowers and chocolates as a thank you for being the Best teachers in the world... they really were!
School is out now, we are slowly getting adjusted to life, unscheduled beautiful LIFE!
Adjusting, a transition comes and, as always, with the need for a few attitude checks, insert me saying "ARE YOU KIDDING ME" a bunch or "Seriously!" I really need new things to say, maybe "jumping Jehosephat!" or "crikey!" or go back to some of my teenage faveorites like "holy cabozes " or "Golly Gee Willakers" things that will sound super cute coming out of a six year old.
School was quite the experience, and I have resigned myself to accept it as the new normal... at least until he is old enough to be self motivated and then we can consider a satellite school(at this point it would be mum in tears and Jaime learning nothing because he would rather stay in his room than obey...stubborn little Cox) He had brilliant teachers and he was consistently well behaved, helpful, and kind in school, and he learned a lot! We still need to work on hand writing, but as the boy rarely ever drew or colored as a little one his hands need strengthening to begin with and he is MUCH improved.
Adeline is delighted to have him home, the imaginative play is impressive, as is the mess, did he ALWAYS eat so much!? We have had nearly the entire week inside and no wonder, his last two weeks in school were crazy busy! I don't mind the few days of introvertedness, He thinks his head will be in a book for the rest of the summer, I'll give him the mornings but after nap time out we go!
