school's out for summer... wait, no it's not

there are three and one-half days of school left. but, as we all know, they are fake days. days that have to happen because the school year has to end, but grades have already been turned in so any work that's done isn't gonna be graded. which drives me bonkers. i hate busy work. hate it. with a passion.

but, to be fair, it is all over for #1. he had his last final today and only needs to return to school to retrieve his final report card. #2 is left with only field trips. 3 days of field trips and one half day of p.a.r.t.y. and it's nice to see that their teachers are not propagating the the-last-week-of-school-is-a-real-week-of-school lie. but for #3, the lie lives. he's got a regular ol' week coming up. with "maybe a few quizzes" (so he says). but, i'm starting to think that maybe #3 has it all figured out.

seems they were only looking for some kindlin' to start a good marshmallow roasting fire.
good cover story, don't ya think?

It always makes me crazy when politicians start talking about lengthening the school year. If we'd take out all the "do nothing" days the week before Christmas, the last week and a half of school, etc., they'd get a lot more accomplished.

Made me crazy when last year my kids had to go to school two extra days in the summer because they'd used up their calamity days when they ended up just watching movies and playing. Glad we made those up. :)

Enjoy the summer break--I know it will be a bit of a mixed bag.

#3 cracks me up... my dad always starting singing the '3 more days and we'll be free, free from all this misery...' song, and countdown... its not politically correct, obviously. and, he told me this weekend of the ritual burning of his notebooks. apparently, the tradition continues.

That marshmallow looks slightly toxic!
