The end of the school year is upon us!

My kids have three more days and I have four. As we look to that finish line, we have been embarking on all of the end of school year activities.

Last week we had the 3rd grade kickball tournament. My class won the championship. I wasn’t expecting that so it was a pleasant surprise. We had to play my son’s class in the championship, and I didn’t feel bad about beating him.

Yesterday we had science experiment day. Every student brought in a science experiment to do for the class. It’s fun to see what they come up with. We had several lava lamps, a color density experiment, a running rainbow, mentos and coke, elephant toothpaste, a bouncy egg and several others.

Today we are making s’mores with solar ovens. I’ve never done that before, so wish me luck.

Anyhow, here are your flakes.
