Oh I miss the energy of the end of the school year. It is so much better than then the count down to the beginning of the year.

We have 12 days of school left (after today) - just attended the ES concert last night :) Other signs of summer = signing up for camp, planning R&R travel, trying to figure out what summer clothes from last year still fit the kids(!). Not that they're wearing much yet... down to 55F this morning. That is not shorts weather!

Yesterday Bud and I saw bus loads of kids at a park with the 'volunteer moms' carrying coolers and boxes of sack lunches!!

My 13 is TV flashback, with Paul Lynde. Comedy responses HERE

Do hope you can find time to stop by for a visit.

Did this school year fly by or is it just me????

Connie said...

@Skittles - Even my NINE year old complained about the year going too fast. When kids notice, it means you're not imagining it ;D

NOOOOO! My school year has DRAGGED, and I cannot wait for it to be over. It has been horrible!

We are done with our curriculum and surpassed the states required days in March so we are just having fun and doing projects as they present themselves. Sure glad I don't have to do everything you do at the end of school! ~ Calico Contemplations

I can see how impatient you are to welcome summer :)

Deb said...

Strange, we're just getting cold here. Although we do get a 4-week break in about 4 weeks time.
