Schools Out for Summer


The kids had their last day of school yesterday.  I can't believe it, 2nd and 4th grade FLEW by!  The kids have had some parties, some long play dates  (uh-hem excuse my now 5th grader tells me it's hanging out, NOT play date) and some really short days of school.  Can you believe the kids had a full day on Monday but T-W-TH they went to school for 2 1/2 hours and on Friday a mere hour and a half?  Crazy I tell ya!

They are done and Sam did well on his report card.  So proud and Maya, well she left hers at her friend's house - it fell out of the bag.  No worries I am sure she did well too.

It has been Crazy raining here which caused many a graduation parties to be canceled - bummer.  My County was called into a stat of emergency and I got a major leak.  Now to look for that problem and where it is coming from and where it's going.

But that's for another time.

The kids and I are doing something different this year.  Usually we go to camp.  Sam wasn't too interested and did not want to go and I had an opportunity to work at my school and make some very nice money.  The kids will be doing Gymnastics and I am trying to get her into Brownie camp with all her girlies.  Sam will be doing Lego/Space camp and possibly Boy Scout camp with his buds.  This is something new and we will see how it goes.  Lots of their friends are around so it will be interesting.  Most go to camp but some are around.  I only have to work six weeks so after that we are going to gave fun.  AND big bonus for me, the kids will go to CT for a week.

I love summer.  I LOVE the beach.  We will be going often as much as we can.  We the pool (thank goodness my parent's have one and they live around the corner).  I love the BBQs and we will be setting up our fire pit this weekend.  I am excited, now just stop raining.

Have a great weekend.

  1. Yeah for school being out!! Sounds like you have a fun filled jam packed summer ahead Ziz! I am sure you will miss camp this year but to have the opportunity to make some moola is good too. Will the rain ever stop?? It has been the same way here.... My baby girl is going into Grade 7 ~ I cannot believe it! Happy week-end ~ it is going to be a soggy one here.
