It’s the kids’ last day of school. They will sit in classrooms for 1.5 hours. When I get home for lunch hour, they’ll be back already.
Why? Good question.
Something to do with seat time. We had no snow days this year – no snow at all, really – so this is the end of the year from the original 2014-2015 calendar. It’s a mystery wrapped in an enigma, with tartar sauce on the side.
Zac is no longer a sophomore and Ruby isn’t a third-grader anymore. Where does the time go? I’d post photos, yet they slumber on. Besides, Zac would kill me.
The good thing about summer is that I’ll get to see them both kids more. Ruby will attend a few camps here and there. But most of the time she’ll be underfoot, filling water balloons and jumping on her friend’s trampoline next door. Zac will be one with his computer, taking breaks to crack terrible puns and pester his little sister.
I wish regular jobs had summer breaks. Sure, I’ve got vacation days scattered throughout. Nothing of any duration, though. I’ll take my vacation where I can find it, spending time with family and friends. We’ll barbecue and picnic outside. Might even throw in a little karaoke for good measure, enjoying the sunshine. It’s going to be a great summer, folks. Don’t miss it.
