Marty's Birthday -- The Last Day of School
We were getting a little nervous about Marty's outdoor water birthday party because it downpoured non-stop Wednesday and into Thursday morning. But by the time the last day of school was over, the rain had stopped and the sun even came out a bit. All the kids had so much fun and entertained themselves so well that when their moms came to pick them up by 5:00, I sent the moms home without their boys saying we'd call when they were done playing. They all ended up staying until 10:00 which was Marty's original birthday party wish anyway. I didn't go for it imagining an exhausting nightmare -- electing a more traditional party -- one with a timeframe. However, the day was absolutely wonderful because the kids were so good so I didn't see any reason to send them home. Welcome Summer! Happy Birthday, Marty!
