Sweet Summertime

::click on photo to enlarge::

While most schools are already out for summer vacation our lovely school district decided they needed more money from the state so our kids don't get out until Thursday. Isn't it interesting that all the textbooks were checked back in LAST TUESDAY--grades are all done---and the teachers are absolutely pulling out their hair (if not the kids'!!) trying to babysit for so many days when the weather outside is already so hot that the kids hide in any kind of shade they can find during recess?


We have the same schedule for next year, too. Hopefully enough of the teachers will complain that something will be done about it, otherwise it's just another thing I can't stand about public school.

Too bad homeschool didn't work out for us.

Enjoy the pics of PandaGirl until I can post the great pics from our weekend adventure we just had:

Firestone 550 INDY-Car Race!!


  1. I'm right there with ya on this one!!! Bring on summer vacation! We're in session through Friday! I'm so ready to retire the girls' lunch boxes (Chris's too). Hugs!

  2. We have till June 22 and my kids have already turned in some books. Grrrr. Drives me nuts, but I don't even entertain the thought of homeschooling.

    Love the pics!

  3. Our school district is in such bad shape they've shaved 5 days off of the calendar for next year. We got out May 21st, but have to go back August 5th. Yuck.
