Last day of school/beginning of summer!

Remember the last day of school when you were a kid?  I was always so excited to see the end of a school year come & to feel the anticipation of summer ahead.  There were days at VBS to look forward to, church camp, sleeping later, cartoons to watch, swimming, vacations....the possibilities were endless.  And so, every year on the last day of school, I'd hug my teacher goodbye, wave to my friends & I was off!

Today is the last day of school for my kids.  They all left this morning with a little more spring in their step, a bit of a giggle in their voice.  They were READY.  And so am I.  This school year has been a whirlwind of busy-ness, so it's good to have the summer to rest.

I am so proud of the kids.  Savannah is "graduating" into Junior High.  Yikes.  I KNOW I am not that old...or ready to have a 7th grader.  I don't guess I get a choice, though.  ha!  Samuel is finished with 2nd grade & moving onto 3rd.  He and Sarah will be on a new campus next year, so they will be finding their way around in a new building together.  Thankfully Savannah & Andrew both went through this school already, so they've been in the building lots of times and at least somewhat know the lay out.  That will help.  Miss Sarah is going to be a big 2nd grader in the Fall.  :::sigh:::  Boy time flies.

The summer chore list has been made, some special things are on the calendar, a vacation week is planned.  Ahhhh....time to relax a little & just enjoy the time we have together.

Virginian children still have a few more weeks to go. Which means (and don't get me wrong, I love children) a few more weeks of peace and quiet :)
