Dashing into June
Cape Cod Weather Today: Sunny. Blue Skies. Beautiful. Only 53 degrees but getting warmer.
Actual conversation at 6:53 a.m. this morning:
"Only 14 and a half days left of school," says Mom, pulling covers off son.
"We still have three weeks left?" whines boy, falling dramatically back onto his bed.
"You have three field trips, a field day, and step-up day at the middle school," Mom reminds him. "And your sister has three field trips and a field day and your brother has a field trip and field day.There's not a lot of 'school' left in the school year. Just a lot of trips and fun stuff."
"But we still have to get up and go," whines boy, covering head with pillow.
"Yes. Yes, you do." Mom smiles. "So let's go."
Did everyone have a similar scene this morning? Only three weeks left and not over soon enough? Ah, June. Not quite the lazy days of summer, but certainly the crazy days. Field trips, field days, bring a bag lunch, eat a special lunch, having a ceremony at Brownies, having a special trip after school, finding appropriate teacher gifts, having a spring concert, hosting a pool party, neighborhood board meetings, signing up for camp, getting the boat ready for sailing lessons...
It'll all be over soon. Enjoy the craziness while it lasts.
