School Is "ALMOST" out......


June 2nd......Last day of school!
{I know...I know....June 2nd is tomorrow}

Time for a Break!!

I'm thinking they need to go back to the way it use to be....
When I was young, school never started until after Labor Day, and school was out around the middle of May.....
~ ~
Honestly, the "BIG" test is over by the end of April, so what else is there to learn....The entire focus from the start of school is based entirely upon "THE TEST" and once it's over, the kids are in desperate need of a vacation.

Today is awards day at most of the schools in our district.....Carson's is at 9:00.... Tucker's is at 11:00..... and Trey's is at 12:00.....
(Oh....did I mention that they are not all in the same school building?)

Tori's is tomorrow!

WOW......Will I be able to make them all???  Believe me, my grandchildren will know if I'm not there!

The outside temp is going to be around 95 degrees today, and what sounds good is the lake or swimming in the pool...not running around from school to school.....

But.....a (Shug) has to do what a (Shug) has to do and that is to chase grandkids around today.....

Much to do, Much to do.....so I'll have to stop by later to visit with you.......

Have a Blessed Day......

As a former teacher, I always looked forward to the summer break. HOWEVER, I now feel strongly that kids need to be in school for 12 months --with some breaks along the way.

Our schools here seem to be OUT more than they are IN. There are tons of vacation days, teacher days, half days (which are only about 2 hours yet count as an entire day), snow days, field trips, etc. etc. etc. My hubby and I both laugh when we drive by and notice that the schools are in session. I think they are closed more than they are open... Oh Well---I guess that is why the public schools are in trouble these days... Are kids really learning???? Not sure about that--at least here in TN.

Oh Well---glad you will enjoy your grands today --and enjoy their special days.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hope you enjoy your last day of school with the grands, Shug. I know this is not any consolation, but it was 94 today here in MO. I see pool days ahead for you and the grands now that school will be out and it's so hot. Have fun!
