The Last Day
On the morning of the last day of school, Nick and Nathan Cook woke up feeling all excited! Last year, the final day was celebrated with a dress up party in the park, but this year it was going to be a waterparty at the beach near their house. Lucy, being a Beehive teacher, had to go to the beach early to set everything up and of course the boys got to go with her to help. It was going to be a very hot day, so perfect for a waterparty!
Soon enough, other kids started to arrive as well.
Little miss Ellie didn’t bring her good mood (or, was her usual self) and immediately picked a fight with Chantal (who, I might add, had picked out a nice tacky outfit for this day). Some nerve, Ellie; I was nervous to even speak to 11 year olds when I was 5, let alone pick a fight with one of them…
The temperatures rose quickly, so before long most kids were involved in waterballoon fights or other water-related activities.
And more apple bobbing! Ellie decided to just try again! This time joined by Nathan and Ryan….
Sidenote: It was too funny! I didn’t really control any of the kids much but almost every time I went to see where Ellie was, she was applebobbing again. She’s the only child to try it more than once and the only child to get all grumpy when she lost. She’s persistent though, you gotta give her that! Hahaha, I love Ellie!
Tyler and Riley were the lucky ones. Because their mum had to stay to tidy up, they got to enjoy the beach a bit longer than any of the other kids.
For the kids, the summerholidays were off to a good start, the teachers still had some work to do though…. More on that in part 3!
