We’re done! Today was the final day of our spring co-op and it went out with a bang. There was all kinds of craziness, changes, and general mayhem.
The morning started off with some pretty sleepy kids (with good reason), it progressed with most of our families out sick, picked up with some curriculum gain, and ended with my oldest girl being sick.
Even with all the craziness of the day, it was a blessing being able to see our friends for a short while. It is always lovely to fellowship and learn something new.
T was joined by another girl in class (hooray, the first time this session) and we made some lovely Pac-Man and owl origami pieces; very cute!
N and Mouse had a blast in their art and PE courses. Their teacher had them finger painting (sometimes a lost art with middle aged kids), which they really enjoyed.
JAG’s teachers said he had a blast and behaved very well. (This can sometimes be a challenge for him when he plays sports and is overly competitive; we are working on this though!)
For me, the day’s bonus feature was purchasing some curriculum from another mommy in our PSP. She has a son a few years older than T and uses the same curriculum. It seems she had been holding on to some older curriculum and wanted to sell it off. I got a great deal on some of next year’s stuff and most of 8th grade. Whoopie!
It was a great morning, full of fun and laughter (even if it was a bit chaotic). This evening is our PSP’s game night, but unfortunately it seems we won’t be attending. Right after I scored some awesome deals on text books, the troop headed over to the library. Within a few moments of being there, it became very evident that T was under the weather.
Sure enough, Pop confirmed the little lady needs to be kept home and get some rest. So, the family is going to be hanging out at home and getting some much deserved downtime.
While we are a little bummed at missing out on more fellowship, I am looking forward to getting some things cleared off my plate and getting these new books organized.
What a great way to end an eventful co-op season!
