The grad ceremony went off without a hitch. Except maybe that it was blazing hot! Every year we seem to have the hottest evening on record and I was pleasantly surprised to see the forecast called for a comfortable temperature. However, this year we had the most grads ever since the school started. Ninety-two students out of about 680 graduated. You can imagine that once you’ve packed all the grads and their parents and whoever else they wanted to have in attendance that the place was a little warm. It was so weird seeing all my kids again. It was great to see that they appreciated me being there, in fact one girl came running up to me when I arrived and threw her arms around me saying that she was going to cry she was so happy I was there.
Sunday we are headed off to Barrie to Spring Water Park. We will be meeting hubby’s family there and having a picnic as a belated birthday celebration. I’ve never liked mosquitoes but am even more afraid of them now that I have a little guy. I know I can’t protect him from all things forever, but would like for him not to get bitten. I don’t want to be smothering him in bug spray that he might ingest that’s for sure. So I went hunting for something different. My local kids consignment store is carrying Baby Buzz patches that look like a great idea for baby D. They are a sticky patch that once squeezed activates a smell to ward off the pesky critters while supposedly not touching the skin. The big question … do these patches actually work? I think I will go and pick some up and report back with my findings next week.
