End Of The School Year Balloon Surprise

School is officially over! Summer has begun!

This school year has really FLOWN by. It seems like yesterday we were buying new school clothes and backpacks. Though I’m a tiny bit sad the year is done, I must admit, I’m really excited about no homework and crazy schedules. All 3 of my kids have grown so much and worked so hard that I wanted to do something special for them to close out the year with a SMILE.

So I prepared a little surprise for them for when they arrived home from their last day of school.

A week before school was out I reached out to my family and asked them to write a little congrats letter, or something they love about my kids, or a fun memory from the year. All of their responses were so touching. I am so lucky to have a family who is sweet and supportive.

After I printed up the messages, I cut them into strips, stuffed the balloons and tied them to skewers. I gave each kid their own color so they wouldn’t open each others messages. 

When we pulled up in the driveway they started giggling. They shouted “who’s birthday is it?” I said “those are for you guys and once you pop them you will find a surprise!” They jumped out of the car so fast!

We came inside and sat in a circle. One by one they each popped their balloons and read aloud their messages. It was so special. When we were done they all said they couldn’t wait for more balloons next year! This is a tradition we will be doing until they finish college 🙂
