I LOVE this tradition.
I just do.
When the kids come home from school on the last day, they run through, and break, a banner that says "Welcome to Summer!". This serves as a physical showing of switching gears from school to summer.
This year, Beckham got to break his first banner!!!
He punched right through it as was SO excited.
Karaia loves this tradition too, but usually hides her excitement because she feels a little embarrassed. Forget that two seconds before she broke through the banner she was jumping up and down because I reminded her that it was waiting for in the front yard.
Beckham actually had two tries because the first time through didn't tear the banner...well...at all actually.
Ah, summer. I love summer!
