It's been a busy week, I'm certainly glad to see Friday get here. I'm actually off work today. Today is Drama Teen's last day of the school, so I'll be attending the awards ceremony and then playing chauffeur later in the day for her and several friends as they head to the local Cherry Berrys for what as become their traditional last day of school frozen yogurt feast.
It's been a long time since I've been in school (though I went long enough, 21 years). The last day of school was always a looked forward to event. That hasn't changed with DT's entry into the academic realms. My Guy and I begin to look forward to the last day of school almost as much as she does by the time we get to April. Summer means, no school sports thus no weekend games. It means no algebra coaching sessions in the evenings, no science fair experiments spread all over the kitchen table. It ends the 9 PM run to the grocery store because she forgot that it's her turn to bring the treat the next day.
Summer is just a lot more relaxed, even though we still go to work each day. It's amazing how much simpler life is without the need to be sure there are clean uniforms hanging in the laundry room each day and no need to check if her lunch box has to be stocked before I run out the door in the morning (which I invariable forget to do until she asks if I've done so). So the last day of school is my favorite thing this week.
