Well, it was a resounding success. Even though we first needed to survive (as I had predicted in yesterday’s post) Chloe’s astounding (although not so astounding for a 7-year old) impatience for most of the day. But the appointed hour finally arrived, and the swim party turned out to be a terrific choice.
All the children had a great time. Even those who weren’t particularly at ease in the water. Here are some photos of Chloe and Sophie from the party.
I think this celebration was the ideal “last hurrah” for her. I’ve already started to plant the seeds for next year. Smaller group, more intimate gathering. I bought her a sleeping bag as part of her birthday present. Slumber party, perhaps?
Goodbye six. Hello seven.
