Bubbles, Snow Cones and Water Balloons

Who knew preschool could be so exhausting? Today marked the end of year party at my daughters' school and I am wiped out. They had a big party with a bucket full of bubbles, a yummy snow cone machine and a water balloon toss. The water balloon toss ended up being more of a water balloon fight, but would you expect anything less with preschoolers? Surprisingly, the bucket of bubbles was never tipped over. I was convinced the soap would end up all over the ground... instead, most of it somehow ended up in Tortilla's hair, so I guess we'll be taking a bath pretty soon!
Most of the parents became teary. Their "babies" are growing up and getting ready for elementary school. Out of the class of 20, all but 6 of those children are moving on to kindergarten. My daughters are among the 6 who will return to preschool next year. They won't even turn 4 until mid-September. The other two girls who will go back to preschool have birthdays after ours. I think it will be pretty interesting to see my daughters in preschool next year, since they'll be among the only ones already familiar with the routine.
For now, Hubby and the girls are camped out on the couch. Did I mention we took them to McDonald's after the party? Yep. We're all exhausted. Now we have until August to rest up until the whirlwind of preschool begins again!

Any big plans for the summer break?

I think we'll mainly be at the pool. Maybe some library story hours. I'm looking for cheap or free activities!
