Today is the 4th of July. Not just any 4th of July. The LAST 4th of July. I mean the last 4th of July in Massachusetts for our family. It's not just the last 4th of July though. It's the last EVERYTHING. A couple of nights ago, we had the last dinner with some friends. I already had my last day at Swift River Elementary School. I think I went to the Clapp Memorial Library for the last time (that's the library where I live). Sunday, we'll go to our church here for the last time. And then, we'll leave our house for the last time.
You probably already know this, but it feels really sad to have all these lasts and to leave everything.
There are some lasts I'm not so sad about. Soon, I will ride in my dad's car for the last time. I won't be sad about that. It's kind of a run-down car. The air-conditioning doesn't work. When we go over bumps, sometimes the trunk bounces open. The key doesn't always unlock the door and sometimes we can't get the trunk to open. My dad says it's not going to last much longer because it has lots of miles on it so he doesn't want to take it to Wisconsin.
There are some lasts that are really sad though. The last dinner with my friends was really sad because we have had lots of play dates and we go to the same school. We were in even in the same class so we could play together every day. It's also sad to leave our house because our house is very cute and has a big yard with lots of woods around it. Plus it has a tree swing. We can swing really high on the tree swing and it's really fun. I'm going to miss my bedroom because I've spent lots of time there. It seems funny to have a new bedroom that will be unfamiliar.
There will be some good things though. Our house will be bigger. Now, I sleep on a trundle bed and the roof is short. In my new house, I'll have my own room. I'm going to get to choose what color to paint my bedroom and what pictures to hang on the wall. And there's a neighborhood park that I can ride my boke to and there's a meadow behind our house. And hopefully, I'll make new friends in my neighborhood and at school.
Here we are on the LAST day of school in front of our cute house.
Here are the best parts of our new house: the meadow behind it and the new giant playset.
