Five Question Friday

1. Did you do anything special for your kids on the last day of school? Or did you parents do anything special for you?
Nope. We haven't had our last day of school. Polly finished her 5th grade Math and started the next book immediately. We still have some Science and History to finish up and Tigger hasn't finished her 2nd grade Math yet. We're doing a modified year round schedule right now.

I don't remember anything super special when I was a kid either although I do know my mom was as happy to be done with a year of school as we were.

2. What's your favorite summer tradition with your children?
Two family occasions come to mind: Memorial Day with my paternal grandparents (and extended family) and July 4th with my maternal grandparents.
Other than those, I love the simple things: catching lightning bugs and keeping them in a jar, going swimming, going to church camp.

3. What was your favorite thing to do during the summer as a kid?
Swim, stay up late, visit my grandparents. Now that I think about it, those are still my favorite things to do in the summer.

4. How old were you when you were married? Were you a Bridezilla?
I was the ripe old age of 18 when we married. (Way back in 1999. Our thirteenth anniversary is June 19.) I knew what I wanted but I hope I wasn't a Bridezilla about it. I think the worst thing I put everyone through was stringing up {millions of} lights in our church gymnasium. That and the fact that I wanted a candlelight wedding on the longest day of the year.

5. What is your favorite girl name? (I'm needing suggestions.)
My favorite girls names are my daughters' names. But, as I do not share those on this blog, here are a few more that I've always liked (and that we - most likely - won't be using):
1. Eowyn. (Yes, it's from Lord of the Rings. I still think it's a sweet name.)
2. Anna
3. Juliet
4. Tessa (or Tess)
5. Elinor

How 'bout you? What's your favorite summer tradition?

I still get excited on the last day of school. It hasn't arrived yet. Come to think about it, it probably won't since we are trying to make sure The Bear has everything completed in time to graduate next spring. {sigh}

My favorite summer traditions are about the same as your. I love watching the kids catch lightning bugs, we also buy tons of cheap dollar tree fireworks to use throughout the summer. The kids love hearing, "let's do some fireworks tonight!" And going to DQ at 9 pm just cuz we can (we did that last night).
