It's so cliche to say, but I really am having a hard time believing that today is the last day of school, and it's not just because it's still only the middle of June. I feel like, as a kid, school ended much later, definitely towards the later part of June.
This school year has flown for us, and at the same time, has taken forever. Forever. We had a rough start in a new school and some of us acclimated better and quicker than others, but in honesty, it has been a wonderful year and we are very lucky and grateful for all special teachers and new friends (kid and mommy) that we have made.
For me, as the school year ends, I am grateful to have a break from all the driving. And last night, as I packed the four lunchboxes for the last time - and as I sent up a silent prayer of thanks that all the zippers still zipped and all the water bottles kept it together and did not leak and made it through the year, I could not help but be undecided about how I felt about packing these last lunches.
On the one hand, I feel like dancing on the front lawn, no more packing lunches at 10pm when I should really be in bed, but on the other hand, summer means making snacks all day long. And making breakfast twice and also making interesting things for lunch because no one wants to look at tuna fish anymore. Not that I can blame them, but still.
Either way, I think we are all ready for a long break from leaving the house at 7am.
I have to think about that more.
But only for a minute because summer vacation starts in a few hours - and there's still lots to do to get ready.
Happy last day of school, y'all!
Are you a Mom?
