Three and a half days.
That's it...3 1/2 days of school left and then it's "104 days of summer vacation, and school comes around just to end it!" (Name that ditty.)
I'm not sure who looks forward to summer vacation more, me or my kids. Last year held a lot of promise, and then approximately 3.2 hours into summer vacation I was sick and tired of the bickering and fighting and declarations of "I'M BORED!" and I packed up my hot, sweaty kids and my grumpy, hot self and we hauled our butts down to Sam's Club and bought a trampoline.
"HA!" I declared, "That'll show 'em."
It kinda worked.
But this summer vacation? I'm determined to not let there be ANY bickering and fighting...at the first utterance of "I'M BORED" I will provide them with a list of chores that need to be completed...*insert evil motherly laugh here* mwuahahahahahaha!!! That'll show 'em!
Then, the rest of the summer should be a breeze, right?
Actually, the rest of the summer is proving to be crazy busy. Grad parties, family vacations, the boys going to the Boundary Waters, and house projects GALORE (we have our OWN grad party to look forward to next year...WAAAAAAAA!!!)...yeah, I think we'll stay occupied!
Anyway, the countdown is on. Only 3 more "school nights" until summer vacation!
Then, let the party begin!!
