And just like that, the school year has come to an end.
We started our countdown chain when we had about 48 days left, and this morning we took the last link off. After 180 days of school, we have arrived at summer vacation. No more homework. No more lunch money. No more early morning wake-up calls. It’s simply summer. Time to play. Relax. Be.
As the kids and I were leaving school this afternoon, I thanked William’s teacher for putting up with him for the year. I laughed as she replied, “It was good, he really grew on me.”
I have a lot of good memories from the school year. The kids have all grown so much, physically, emotionally, mentally. As I look at them, I see a whole world of possibility, and what a bright world it is.
