End of an Era....

Good Morning Company Girls!

Well, even though the calendar says summer comes next week...really...it comes today! All my kids will be done school after today..and to me, that always signifies the beginning of summer....just as the first day of school..to me, is fall (autumn)....I know I'm weird...but when your life has revolved around your kids being in the school system for over 30 years...well, that's just the way it is.

Hubby reminded me this morning that after today we wont have anybody in the elementary school...the same one that eldest one started at about 30 years ago....what a run! He wanted to know if I was going to go over and give them all a hug....well, except for hubby...I'm not a real huggy person....then he asked me how many principles that I could remember.....!!! Good grief, I have a poor memory at the best of times but really...I think there's been at least 5,...maybe 6. Oh well, I wont lose sleep over it!

It feels really nice to have this era done...like we can finally move on...come September, all 4 teens will be at the same high school......pretty neat, huh?

Well, that's about all I have to say today....I plan on taking off in a few minutes...Megan's gone to school, and I have places to go and things to see!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Wow! I can't imagine being through with elementary, but this is a year of changes for us because our oldest begins junior high...I can't believe it! I love gleaning wisdom from ladies like you who have made it through...and still have living children to prove it! ☺ Have a great weekend...enjoy your summer!

There were only 4 of us kids, but isn't it the best when they're at 3 different schools? =p Happy summer!

Wow! That is amazing that they all went to the same elementary school, with all the moving around and change that usually happens in families today. :)

I can hardly believe I will have three in school full time next year. This year just breezed by!

Have a great weekend!

I thought summer was already here. It's been so hot. It must be nice having all kids in the same school together. Have a great weekend!
