Last day of school.........

It's the last day of school.  Yeah!!!!!  The only thing I hate is the cleaning out of the backpacks.  I will have to do a quick job as the whole family is coming on Saturday for the twins birthday.  Actually we are celebrating all the June birthdays, but that is a mute point.  I am always totally amazed at what I find in my children's backpacks.  Recently I found a birthday invitation to our little neighbor's party, which was the previous weekend.  I thought we were not invited and could not figure out why.  Just shows you that jumping to conclusions is a bad idea.  Not that I did anything, I just thought I had offended  in some way.

Tyler owes ten dollars for a book to be re-bound.  Apparently over 60% of the class has to pay the fee for one book or the other.  Yikes.  Isn't that what my tax dollars are for?  He did not maliciously break the book, it just sort of fell apart after many years of use.  I ponied up the ten bucks, but really, maybe it is time for new books.  

We have a pool party to go to.  Actually a ool party, our neighbors would prefer you don't "P" in the pool.  They do it every year at the end of the school year.  Hot dogs, swimming, junk food, fun for all.  You do have to watch their dog, he usually eats himself sick from all the half eaten hot dogs kids leave on plates at the tables.  It is not Haas's fault if you just go in to get a drink, he is just a dog, doing what dogs do, eating unattended food.  By around four o'clock, even he is looking a little worse for wear.

Then tomorrow, the magical day when I don't have to attempt waking up my children.  I can have a quiet morning and watch the news and not have to watch Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network.  Although, the Penguins of Madagascar totally crack me up, King Julian, riot.  "It's boom boom time Rico".  Love it.

So, I will enjoy today and say goodbye to another school year.  No more school, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks (I don't really think they give dirty looks anymore, but what do I know?)

What do you do on the last day of school?  Share the love.

God bless you and yours.

Oh,yeah...they give dirty looks...

For me, that "official" first day of summer is the first Monday, because during the school year it seems Sunday nights are always such a battle of getting the kids to bed.
We're about a week in, and I haven't put a dent in my enormous summer "to-do" list...
