Since I'm a teacher, I rarely get to attend my own girls' school parties because I'm in the middle of my classroom parties. This Christmas the schedule worked out so that I had the chance to go to both girls' classroom parties. What fun!
Katherine's party was yesterday afternoon, just before our school let out for Christmas break. There were 22 first graders, lots of parents, and half a dozen younger siblings crammed into a too-small classroom. Let's just say it was barely controlled chaos. Kate's teacher passed me and whispered "I hate party days". I can see why... Katherine, however, thought it was all grand.
I'm pretty much partied out now, but it was fun to share some time with my girls.
