School is out for the Summer...

No more homework, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks...YEAH! The kids countdown is over...SCHOOL IS OUT! I can remember the last day of school being the BEST! In grade school the teachers would use slave labor and make us clean their rooms...then in middle school we would think we were so cool going over to Dixie Frozen Yogurt for the end of school celebration. High school was the ultimate...signing yearbooks and checkin out and scheming the summer "scam"! AHHHH... those were the days. Even as a teacher I loved the last day of school...FREEDOM! Now days... I am having a plethora of emotion...glad that there will be no more homework or projects, the kids won't have to be rushed in the morning, and no big schedule. On the other hand there will be no schedule and routine and approx. 80 days of bliss. BLISS? YIKES! I am off to the pharmacy to get a party pack of those "mother's little helpers" that this state is so famous for...

80 days? Wow, put it like that and it seems forever. My friend Tammy just put up a school starts in 60 days calendar. I am sure her kids loved that!

Amy you are so funny! I love that school is out too... for the time being. I might not be saying that in 3 weeks from now. And also, about our little girls night out... I'm so excited! I hope you don't think I'm a big fat dork, and then you de-link me from your blog and never comment on mine again after we meet. Oh that would suck! LOL

Do you mean closet cocktail or party pill? I'd like two of whatever you are ordering.
