winding up for the end of the school year

It always feels like it should wind down but it couldn't be further from the truth. The last two weeks of school are the toughest (on me at least.) The amount of things to contribute to, finish, pay for, and remember is unrelenting. I just remembered this minute I have yet to put all of Chloe's patches on her Girl Scout vest for her bridging ceremony tonight. Seems silly since the ceremony is to bridge into Brownies where she'll get a whole new vest that I will need to fashion a whole new lot of patches onto. But this one must be complete. And um, many of the ones I'm putting on have already fallen off from my first round of apparently insufficient hot gluing.
Also on the to-do list:

  • Make Blurb book for teacher with portraits I took of all the children and include a quote from each child.
  • Make that Blurb book again so that other parents can order. (no, you shouldn't have to do that, but my username had to be changed and so on and so-forth.)
  • Go to birthday part in BFE.  Can't grab a gift since there are no stores in BFE, so add that to Monday's to-do list. 
  • Finish report on woman inventor. 
  • Buy a $5gift for pen pal gift exchange. 
  • Sign permission slip for walking field trip to pen pal's school.
  • Wrap and remember take gift. 
  • Pack sack lunch for walking field trip. 
  • Attach patches to girl scout vest. 
  • Make gifts for Girl Scout leaders (this is going to have to wait till later in the week when all other gifts will be made.) 
  • Check to see what dues I still owe for previous girl scout meetings. 
  • Wrap teacher's gift.
  • Bake and decorate several dozen summer-themed sugar cookies for gifts to teachers, girl scout leaders, the mom who made scrapbooks for the whole class, the parking guy, principal, secretary, friends, and anyone else who has helped us out this school year. We appreciate people. With cookies. 
  • Get oil change. 
  • Have tires rotated. 
  • Shop for husband's birthday which happens to also be the last day of school. 
  • Shop for husband for Father's Day which is three days after his birthday. 
  • Shop for Dad for Father's Day. 
  • Design and make t-shirts for Camp Debbie.

Also? Really wish I'd remembered about the patches sooner, because we are missing two petals on her vest and look how cute this is.  I could have made her vest really cool had I shopped earlier. The local scout shop which is right down the street? It's closed the second and fourth Monday of every month. Dang it!!
