We're almost there, ladies - the end of the school year. For many of you, it's a bittersweet time, full of memory-making events and photo ops. Wait, let me hand you the tissues...
For me, it's turning into a 400-yard sprint to the finish, which will be fueled by crockpot meals and caffeine as in years past. My calendar is chock-full of end-of-the-year concerts and ceremonies and events involving emails requesting my presence and oh-by-the-way-please-bring-two-dozen-individually-wrapped-somethings-for-our-refreshment-table, all being crammed into the last two weeks of May and the first two weeks in June because we had no snow days this year and therefore our kids are not attending school until the 4th of July.
And the planning for summer activities is underway as well. Since I'm not working full-time and Hubby works second shift, our kids have more "kid" time during the summer than many of their friends. But even those weeks have already filled up quickly with a family vacation, a nephew's wedding, a week away at camp for the Oldest. Add into the mix football starting the second week of August for the Middle Child and the Oldest working this summer, and the "free" time isn't so readily available.
Do you find your end-of-the-school-year jam-packed? And how's your summer shaping up?
