Our cookie stand

The "last day of school" cookie stand started many years ago. The bus stop up the street had a fun tradition. A cool mom had set up a table with cookies and juice and cheered as the kids came off the bus. Well, Ry was the only kid at our bus stop , and I did not think to set up a party, so we joined their fun. The next year the fun mom told me that I would have to continue the tradition because her kids were done with elementary school. Our bus stop has grown each year and I have faithfully set up a table with cookies and juice to start the summer celebrations. Unfortunately, I had class this year so I missed the fun.
But the cookie stand lived on! Luckily, Erik flew into the country minutes before the bus and found himself manning the stand with some of the neighborhood moms. It looks like they had a great time!
Here is my sad fifth grader. She had to say good-bye to her elementary school life.
Here comes my now SECOND grader!More summer bound kids..
Our lovely neighbors...plus the little one was a fun new kindergartener this year!
The stand stayed set up long enough for the middle schoolers to join the fun (Ry wanted to make sure they did NOT miss the tradition-after all Ry was one of the original cookie standers).
