last day of school


today is max's last day of 2nd grade! bee and i are so excited to have him home and begin our summer shenanigans together. our "last day of school surprise balloon wake up" was a total bust...what with me getting caught by max at 4:30 this morning standing over him with a bag of balloons (i told him he was just having a nightmare and slowly back-peddled out of the room) and then coming to realize that angsty almost 9 year old boy's don't get sent to the moon by a bed covered in balloons (he surely is not my son. haha)

regardless, here's to summer!
oh my. wish me luck.

  17. I will admit to finding some respite in hearing of angsty 9 year olds. I have one too. (Well, he just turned 10.) It's like a pre-pre teen phase.

  20. What a fun idea to celebrate summer break and a year of hard work! Too bad our house is already filled to the brim with balloons All. The. Time. My 1 year old and 2 year old have a thing for balloons. I could never get the surprise past my 8 year old. LOL.

  28. I love this idea. Nothing better than many many colorful balloon. It's such a cool idea to make a day special. Definetly have to do it.
    And I really love your photography style. Every picture is so so beautiful!

  29. what a brilliant idea! balloon bombing! my boys share a room so i'd have to figure out a way to either contain the balloons on one side, giving new meaning to 'this side of the room is mine!' or figure out an occasion to do it for both of them. thank you for the inspiration!
