June 30th marks the last day of the month, the first full day of summer holidays for the boys and I, my parents' 51st Anniversary (congratulations!) and my end of the month wordle post. I couldn't just post the wordle alone though and had to share some photos from our annual trip to Crescent Beach on the first day of summer holidays. The boys made a huge sandcastle with a moat. Colin called Adam a traitor for even considering another type of icecream than their traditional "Rainbow Twist"!
We went out for dinner to celebrate the end of the school year and to give Adam his "graduating" gift. Along with a grade 7 photo collage, we finally relented and got Adam a cell phone. He was so excited and surprised. I know he really wanted an android type phone but geesh, Neil and I don't even have phones like that! Although my heart always just wants to give the boys what they want, Neil and I believe that the boys have to work towards some things, that things just can't be given to them so easily. There's that danger of expectation that I think gets really tricky to deal with as kids get older. It all ended well and Adam is super happy with what he got and we're happy with the plan. Adam is just beaming actually.
