Today is June 1. My girls finished school yesterday - can't believe I now have a 2nd and 4th grader! What a great year they had in school. How jealous am I (every year) of summer vacation. My younger daughter asked me the other day "Mommy, when is your last day of work?" Oh how I wish!
On the other hand, my husband the SAHD is now on full-time daddy duty. I don't really envy that either. I'm pretty excited though, because this is the first summer that we've been able to sign the kids up for community ed activities since taxi-dad is one of Sean's SAHD duties. Brooke gets 2 rounds of summer school this summer, Jordan is taking 3 different community ed courses, and they both can do vacation Bible school at church this year. And hopefully we can figure out activities and "field trips" and even some math skills time to keep them all busy (and off the electronic screens) this summer.
But it is always an adjustment for me to get up and get ready for work while everyone else sleeps. Why oh why did I not become a teacher, so I could have the thrill of "last day of school!!!" and then the anticipation in a few months of "first day of school!!!" Happy summer vacation everyone!
