Last Day of School!! Last Day of School!! Last Day of School!!

Mr. Man and I did a funky dance while screaming, "Last Day of School" in the kitchen this morning to Mr. Boy's mild amusement. Mostly he just rolled his eyes. He finally is on the mend, and the doc gave him the all clear to go to school today. He put together a special outfit. At first I was a little worried, because it appears he's going to be spending the day working in Aunt Jemima's kitchen instead of school. However, once I asked him about his look, I realized with pride that it was inspired by my first true love, Bret Michaels, "Rock of Love" Star and lead singer of the worlds awesomest hair band, Poison.
I had pictures of him in my wallet from the age of 13, and I imagined we'd have this crazy awesome house overlooking the city with a huge pool in the shape of a guitar together. Me + Bret = True Love. He'd strum his guitar while I unpacked the take-out and put it on plates that we had designed for us for our wedding. White bone China with a ring of Roses and thorns......*sigh* (notice how even at 13, I didn't have high expectations of my domesticity) So, where was I? Oh Mr. Boy! Ok.. so it wasn't really inspired by Bret Michaels, but is really from this day, where I said... "Hey, let's pretend we are like the Rock Stars on Guitar Hero, and clean the house!?" So we popped scarves on our head, blasted music and everyone cleaned. They loved it! So here is the look Mr. Boy wore to school for his last day... Notice it's not even 9 am, and the Irish kid is already pounding down a kiddie sized Heinekin.
Then he did this...
Then it's time for the customary last day of school pic in front of the sign.And I noticed that I failed to post the first day of school pic, because of that whole "In the hospital, having stupid surgery" experience. However, Mr. Man followed my instructions to take the pic. Notice the white cars, I wasn't even kidding...

I'm happy to see that the grass has improved.

Is that red bucket mandatory for first and last day of school??

Yes, all kids take Buckets instead of Backpacks. It's very cute seeing all the red buckets lined up. I should take pictures of that!
