Back-to-school can be an emotional time for kids and for some parents, too. But one group of moms from the Dallas/Fort Worth area sent their kiddos out the door and had a celebration of their own – on a huge party boat.
On the first day of school, the mamas dropped their children off at school, took the obligatory first-day photos, and then headed to Lake Lewisville for a few hours in the sun and water. Mom Abby Lane was part of the group and she says this was their second year doing a boat trip, but this year more moms wanted in on the fun, so they got a bigger boat - one that could fit all 100 of them!
So the mothers brought way more food than they needed for their three-hour excursion - hey they had to be back in time to pick up the kids from their first day of school - and hit the water. They swam, soaked up the sun, drank an adult beverage, and didn’t once have anyone ask, “Hey mom, where are my goggles?”
As much as we love summer and getting to spend more time with our precious little ones, after a few months of bickering about screen time and cleaning their rooms, we welcome the first day of school. And these Texas moms sure did find a fun way to wrap up summer in style.
