Today was the last day of school for my girls, and just like the past 19 years, on the last day I made, cream puffs.
It started innocently enough when my oldest was in kindergarten. He wanted me to do something special for his class at the end of the year, and he’s always loved cream puffs, sooooooo, the year was 1988.
He remembered and wanted me to do the same for his first grade class.
When my second oldest, Nick, started kindergarten, he was ready with this same request.
Hence a tradition was born.
Some of the most difficult years were when I had 3 in school at the same time, and had to make approx 130 of them.
This year was easy, my youngest is in a class of 24, and my oldest daughter just picked her favorite teachers and coaches.
My youngest is moving up to Jr High this next school year, and I thought I was permanently done with, last day, cream puffs… that is until my oldest reminded me that my grandson will be starting school in 3 years, and guess what???? LOL
At least I’ll have a break!
Other than making cream puffs and making sure our new fence was installed, we went to my oldest daughter’s softball bbq. She, lettered, and made all conference team, for our district. OK, I have no idea what that really is, but I do know it’s a nice honor.
It was up at the dam, with lots of good food. The water was too cold to go swimming (for me anyway), but most of the girls jumped in.
I hope you are all safe and enjoying your summer.
Now, I wanna hear about any of your traditions and how they got started.
BIG HUGS, Steph
