Elizabeth's friend Samia invited her and a couple of other girls for a sleepover to celebrate the last day of grade three.

 

They decorated cupcakes, watched a movie and generally had a blast.

 

The era of sleepovers has begun!

   

He can't do it long, but Michael can sit up by himself! Be afraid...

   

Matthew and Amelia were invited to come and participate in a research project on how kids see the future.

 

They were asked questions about what they thought they'd use when they were grownups like whether they'd have a school bag or briefcase. Matthew said he'd have a schoolbag full of money. Then they were asked a few questions about what they would like most when they grew up such as sticker books vs magazines, books vs storybooks, Curious George vs cooking shows, crosswords vs playdough and juice boxes vs coffee. Amelia answered everything based on what she likes now. Matthew answered based on the more obviously "adult" except he chose sticker books and Curious George.

 

Then they did a delay of gratification exercise - pick one now or get four later. Matthew chose to wait; Amelia chose to eat what was offered immediately. They could also choose to give hypothetical smarties to someone else. Matthew offered up 8. Amelia offered up 3, thus proving that Matthew is my more generous child (heh).

 

After they were all done they were allowed to pick a toy and they both picked out hatchimals. Elizabeth was SUPER jealous. Matthew and Amelia want to help the scientists again as soon as possible.

Erika and Maria have received their second stripes!

   

It was the last day of school for my kids! Amelia's school technically goes another week but we're heading out of town so it was her last day too which wrapped things up quite nicely. For breakfast we tried out the many weird flavours of honey we got at the insect place.

 

Matthew got a photo with his teacher Mme Judith at the playground when they did their little party, but Mme Samia had disappeared by the time I remembered such things. He was quite pleased not to be taking the bus home the last day.

 

I picked Elizabeth up first and was quite amused by having to wade through hordes of wailing sixth graders. The school ends after sixth grade so it was extremely tragic and there were FLOODS of tears. On the opposite end of the spectrum the kindergartners were getting onto the last bus of the year amid dancing, tambourines and maracas. The teachers at least were getting ready for one big party and it was quite festive.
