Both kids were lucky enough to get two of the best teachers at our school. They really are such fun, caring and thoughtful people. The kids had such great school years thanks to these two.
Our street has a big block party every year and it starts with the parents arming themselves with water balloons and water guns and ambushing the kids when they get off the bus. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked, but these capture the fun pretty well.
We are also very lucky to have a volunteer firefighter at the end of our cul-de-sac. He brings the firetruck and hoses down the kids.

The water fun is followed by a potluck dinner in the street. It's such a fun tradition and the perfect way to kick off summer!
