Yay! It's here!!!
For those who asked, here in the Northeast, school starts usually the Wednesday after Labor Day in September, and continues through until mid June. The actual ending date depends on your district, how many days you get off for winter break, snow days, etc.
Fuzzy had his awards ceremony this morning. As I mentioned, Pumpkin's was yesterday. Here are pictures:
First is Pumpkin, in the flowered skirt getting her Academic Achievment Award, for final averages 90% and above. She also received 3rd place in the chess club junior division, and a certificate for participation in choir.
Next is Fuzzy receiving his academic award.
The pictures are blurry-ish. Sorry. Fuzzy is the one in the grey Rutgers shirt. To the far right is his good buddy, Russ, wearing Borat. @@
School was a half day, ending at 12:30pm. Fuzzy and a friend headed to our town center, we townies call it 'uptown', to have pizza and hang out for a bit. He and his buddy should be arriving back here very soon.
Pumpkin came home, changed quickly into her bathing suit, and headed out to her best friend Siobhan's house for the annual End of Year Pool Party! Yay!
Hubby was home yesterday afternoon for Pumpkins ceremony and this morning for Fuzzy's, so he had to go run and visit a construction site this afternoon.
Exciting doings, I got my hair cut today! Yay! It is the same length just with some layers and better shaping. I needed it. It feels great!
On an annoying note, I have been increasingly having more and more problems with my eyes getting dry and my contact lenses. That goes hand in hand with the RA/Lupus/Sjogren's Syndrome. Ugh. I have to mention that to the eye doc at my next check up in August.
So, I am wearing my glasses for a while until the redness goes away and I can switch back to my contacts again.
Tomorrow, we have a scout family trip to a mine in western NJ. I decided to go because there is not that much walking. I like exploring and learning, so this should be fun!
