His big day
Last year's sledding party was a hit, so we decided to do one again. (Thanks to Mrs. C. Mitchell from whom I stole the idea.) It's one of those things you can't plan until the last minute after a snow storm and with the hopes for a clear, sunny Saturday. So, invitations went out a couple of days before the big day and we just had to hope the conditions were decent. The snow storm ended up being not much of one, but there was still plenty of snow and the day turned out to be pleasant.
On the invite to his classmates, I requested a caretaker to attend with their child. Sledding can be dangerous. I thought it was funny that all the caretakers were dads with the exception of Renee.
After passing out the invitations, K asked me if I gave one to Shelbie. Sure I did, I gave one to everyone in his class. Later on that day, again the same question. It wasn't until the third time, that I put two and two together. Shelbie is his kindergarten crush. I was so excited when Shelbie's mom called to RSVP. I ran downstairs to tell K and I got the cutest reaction......a huge smile, an "I've been caught" embarrassed look and as he turned away he said, "I just wanted to make sure everyone was invited so no one would get their feelings hurt." Yeah, sure. As he gets older, I'm sure his crushes won't be as obvious. so , so cute. Well, there she is featured above.
It was a great time. The kids were completely entertained. We provided a hot breakfast. Next year if we do it again I think donuts and drinks will suffice. We'll add a pinata as well.
