School's out for summer . . .
As of this afternoon, we are officially on summer break. The boys both finished up school today (and yes, there were tears and hugs when I picked Joey up, as he has had the most wonderful teacher this year). Joey brought home a near-perfect final report card (and honestly, I'm usually more interested in the teacher's comments than the grades!). We haven't received Kevin's final report card yet, but he did receive two awards at assembly a couple days ago: one for being an outstanding Community Leader by completing more than double the required community service hours, and the other for making the Honor Roll for the second semester running. I'm very proud of both of them.
So now summer. I'm looking forward to a little less structure to our days, to not having to get up at 5:20 a.m., and to long days and walks through the nature trail at twilight. We have no big plans this summer, except to get through Michael's surgery next week.
