The Last Day of School

Today is the last day of school:
And Bug and Bear are just all broken up about it:
Bug has Step-Up Day today, where she gets to meet her fifth grade teacher and see who will be in her class next year. Bear is performing in the school talent show (hence the Hawaiian garb). She and five of her friends have formed a woodwind quartet and will be playing some Vivaldi and calypso music. Interesting blend of styles, yes?

School's out for the summer at 11:00 am. I'm sipping my last solo cup of coffee and savoring the quiet of an empty house for the last time until September.
Shall we begin the countdown until the first "I'm bored. There's nothing to do around here." of summer?

I take last day of school pictures, too! Aren't they the best?
Happy vacation! I hope they don't drive you crazy being bored!

Your girls are quite adorable!

Good luck staying entertained all summer. We're taking the dogs for a two day road trip to see the inlaws in FL. They're almost as bad as kids in the car.

I'm betting next Wednesday will be the day you hear it. Lucky them! my last day isn't until NEXT Friday, with the kids going until Thursday. Four more days with kids then one work day (although we usually get to leave at noon). CAN'T WAIT!!

I think they'll miss their friends, but since they both love to read, I don't think you'll hear "I'm bored" for quite a while. First they will surely savor getting to sleep past 6am!

Nothing heals boredom like a chore list...

I haven't gotten "I'm bored" ... yet. It's only been 24 hours and I've got one of the girls in camp the next two weeks, so I'm hoping to forestall the whining for a week or two.

When they get older they drop the I'm bored for where are the keys and can I have some money? Enjoy the I'm bored while you can!
