Sunday was the last day of summer before our oldest child began kindergarten. Any teacher (me included) will tell you to get them to bed early so they can be ready and rested to begin school. Instead, we took our kids to Busch Gardens to really enjoy their last day of summer. We let them stay out late, riding rides and playing in the rain. We watched the shows, ate junk and drank soda.
I’m sure my teacher friends are cringing but our kids had a blast. Kendall went to bed two hours past her normal bedtime.
I am so not winning mother-of-the-year for this one.
