Happy First Day of June!
I can’t believe that in a short couple of weeks, Micah will no longer be in Kindergarten (sniff, sniff!). The year has really gone by so fast. We are looking forward to our fun summer plans but sad that the school year is coming to an end. I will need to soak in as much as I can these next couple of weeks.
We had an eventful Saturday. Jason had a guys day out and went hiking on Mission Peak Regional Preserve. The view at the top is beautiful! I’m glad he decided to bring the camera along.
Our church hosted a blood drive today. After dropping the kids off at my parents’ house, I headed to Creekside to donate blood (my first time!). I’ve had my blood drawn at the hospital numerous times (too many to count), so I figured this would be a similar experience. Everything went well. It was actually more painful when they pricked my finger to test my iron levels than when they inserted the needle into my arm. =P
In the afternoon, I took the kids to the San Leandro Library Summer Reading Program Kickoff Event. Their theme this year is “Reading Is So Delicious.” There were a lot of activities; crafts, snacks, a music concert, etc. We saw many friends from MOPS and a buddy from Micah’s school was there too. We all had a good time!
One of the crafts was to make a pillow for your stuffed animal. You could bring your stuffed animal to spend the night at the library. Cute idea, but we didn’t bring ours. I think Micah made his pillow for his turtle constellation night light.
Papa Murphy’s handed out samples of their pizzas.
The summer reading program officially starts on Monday, but we got to sign up today. The Alameda County Library Summer Reading Game begins on June 10th, the Hayward Library Summer Reading Challenge begins on June 15th, and the Oakland Library Summer Reading Game begins on June 15th.
Let the Games/Challenge/Program Begin!
