Tomorrow is the official last day of school for the kids. It will be a short day (3hrs). They go in to say good-bye to their teachers and pick up their yearbooks.
Yearbooks, formerly only for middle and high schoolers are now available for elementary school kids. My son didn’t get a yearbook last year, but this year he’s decided it is necessary.
Most likely because he is eager to collect everyone’s contact information so he can arrange to do cool guy stuff over the summer, he tried that last year, but didn’t have a yearbook and resorted to writing phone numbers on his hands…and little slips of paper that ended up in his pocket, then the wash.
I think it is a good idea to set aside a few hours for yearbook signing, I remember in high school everyone smuggling their yearbooks into class and surreptitiously passing them around. Oh, but if you were caught the teacher would take your yearbook away-sometimes until the end of the school year.
The girls are sharing a yearbook. Works out right now, but I am sure by next year it won’t be “cool” to share your yearbook with your twin sister.
I remember getting popsicles, having water balloon fights and what seemed at the time like endless recess.
What are your favorite end of school memories?
