It’s starting. They’re done. It’s summer!
Today was the last day of classes, except for a final for Tyler tomorrow. We’ve done all the year-end ceremonies, awards, banquets, confirmation classes and recitals. Now it’s time for camp, kids being home all day, ice cream, hot, simmering days at the pool and vegetable gardens. I know the kids are excited, but so am I. Our family gets to take a little two month breather. Well, sort of.
With the school year being extended quite a bit due to all the snow days, it feels like we’re being thrust into summer abruptly. Erin leaves for camp without having had even a full week of being out of school. Despite starting summer a little later than usual, I find myself wondering where did yet another school year go? The summer days stretch before them, ready to enjoy days without homework.
To quote Olaf from Frozen, Winter’s a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I’ll be a…happy snowman!
