It's really here. Finally. J13 finishes school at 10:00 this morning -- his last final. D10 (ok, just for a second there I forgot how old my youngest is) has his class party today and then award ceremonies in the morning and we are finished!
I thought third and seventh grade were going to be the end of me. Third grade at our school is really intense -- lots of field trips, projects, etc. Seventh grade has been a challenge for J13 but he really has done well. Middle school is some sort of special hell and we all went through it. As a serious, intense, non-athletic kid it was not easy. Let's just say the alpha mails took a few runs at him. But he's still standing. I'm proud of him.
I'm just home from a three day business trip to California and am really looking forward to the holiday weekend. I am back to teaching yoga two or three times a week but I'm on a bit of a break until the following weekend. With no yoga classes happening and homework finished for the year it feels like someone has added a couple of hours to every day. I'm pretty sure I'll figure out a way to waste it. It's summer. Isn't that what we're supposed to do?
