School was officially over for the girls yesterday, and DD is already complaining of being bored. She wants to do MORE science….so I’m sure we’ll continue…in our free time. We’ll find plenty of things to do…trips to the library, swimming lessons, violin lessons, sewing, and of course….house cleaning (yuk!)

Doodlebug is very excited about being in kindergarten next year. Some of her kindergarten curriculum arrived in the mail a few weeks ago and she couldn’t wait to get started. She LOVES the math book. I’m hoping she’ll decide to LOVE the reading book soon. Although she CAN read, she’d rather make up her own words than sound out the ones written in the book. If you know DB, that’s no surprise!  After all, a princess should only have to do what she wants to do, right? She made a lot of progress in speech, but she’ll continue to attend speech classes next year. She’s scheduled for only one day per week rather than two.

We’ve had a great year and accomplished quite a bit, but I’m exhausted! I’ve always been a very energetic person…but I’ll have to admit that DD’s got me whooped! (Is that a word?) She’s given me a new appreciation for parents and teachers of ADHD children. Perhaps I should include “young” parents, too. There have been days this year that she has literally been upside down in her desk, sitting on the back of her seat, and bouncing like a rubber ball. We’ve reviewed math facts and spelling words while jumping up and down and hopping up and down stairs! I’m not sure who needs medication the most…DD or me? Lol
Next year will be quite challenging…teaching two different grade levels to two very different personalities at the SAME time. Hmmmmm…I sure hope it’s a long summer.

Congratulations on the end of another school year. Time is just flying by isn't it? I can't believe DB is going to be in Kindergarten. I was looking thru old pictures yesterday, and found many of DB when she was little bitty. And DD, and all the girls...just growing up. Sigh....
