In the doldrums of winter it seems like summer vacation will never arrive, but once it’s May 15th all you can see is the end of the school year bearing down on you like a runaway truck.
While I am thrilled at the prospect of NOT having school for 2.5 glorious months, I also am not that fond of the huge amount of events that seem to take place in the last 2 weeks of school.
You know a field trip might have made the month of March a little more bearable. No, I don’t care if it’s cold, I’ll make sure my kid wears a hat, just get him outside please!
Ah, but alas all the field trips are at the end of the school year. Not to mention all the final plays, programs, concerts, you name.
I am tired people! Please cut me some slack, here. I really don’t need a day that includes 1 concert, 2 awards program and track meet all at same time in two different venues.
When I told my kids I was looking forward to not having to drive anywhere in the summer; my oldest daughter got quite indignant and insisted she would still be doing things, thank you very much.
Of course, she will. I just figure that maybe on that day the other two kids won’t have to be anywhere or at least anywhere at the same time that she needs to be across town.
