Last weekend we had an end of summer celebration and it was a BLAST!!
We invited a few friends to meet us at a local park to enjoy the ending of the summer and the beginning of a new school year. The kids ran around and played (and totally wore themselves out, thankyouverymuch) while the "grown ups" chatted and caught up on our busy lives.
Then as the sun started going down, the real fun began. This past summer, I was lucky enough to win enough Text Bands from Hallmark for a classroom or team. Since we have two girls and not quite enough for two classes, we decided to have a big, old party instead and give out the Text Bands to our friends.
This is one of those drink dispensers where you can put ice in a tube down the middle to keep your drinks cold. Instead, CG put glow in the dark bracelets. That is reason enough alone to have a party.
We had such a great time that we are seriously considering making it a tradition. The Friday of the first week of school, party at our park. Y'all are invited.
