For many, the first day of summer will be June 20 this year.
For me, the first day of summer will be June 8. The day after school lets out.
No more yelling at the kids to do their homework.
No more class projects that are due on Monday.
No more rushing to get the kids to school by last bell.
No more notices about lost library books.
No more complaints about how easy school was in "the olden days" compared to now.
No more notes home about how chatty L was or how outrageous M was or how distracted P was in class.
Ahhh Summer, you're so close I can taste it.
