It's time for summer!


In past years, I've experienced end-of-year-itis much like my kids. It wasn't as bad this year--not creeping up on me until just recently, with only three weeks left of school. Usually, I get antsy with about two months left... I attribute the lag to the fact that my son rides the bus to and from school. That's really what drives me insane--the trips back and forth to school on a daily basis. And our middle school is the worst set-up for traffic I've ever experienced. And I'm on my third go-round.

Anywho...tonight is my son's band program and next Thursday, my middle child graduates from high school. And then we're off for the summer. I even get summer vacation (sort of) this year.

Come June 8, I'm working half days. The kids and I will spend mornings cleaning house. Well, mostly the kids. I'll be there to command the troops.
We may get a couple of field trips in there, if they do good.

We'll be taking a couple of camping trips, hopefully, and I'm also hoping for a houseboating trip--but not until after the peak season, which for most lakes/houseboat rental places is the end of September.

Any special summer plans?

A three month break!!! What are you going to do with yourself... You could always take a camping trip to Oregon... he he he.

Summer snuck up on me as well. Now, that I'm working more hours outside the home, it doesn't really feel like summer -- YET!

However, I hope to change that with more fun week-end outtings. And as mine are all old enough, a few late night outtings as well.

We're planning a cruise this summer. It's our first, and I'm totally jazzed about it.

One of these days, Mom, we'll make it.

Have fun on that cruise, Sandra!
