No more pencils. No more books. No more teacher's dirty looks.

I don't know about you all but I am diffidently ready for the school year to be over.  This year it really felt like it came and went so fast.  I'm still working on our night time routine.  I still haven't figured out if it's better that I take a shower at night or morning to save time.  I'm pretty sure I have a laundry basket of clean clothes from September that I have to put away.

I need a breather.  I need a break from the emails and the letters and the ARDS and cue cards.  Not to mention the beast that is 6th grade.  I'm ready for that grade to be over with.  It's like a tooth ache.  2 down 2 more to go.
Honestly sometimes I find myself feeling angry.  I just want my kiddo to enjoy kindergarten the way I did.  The way I think I did. The way kids should?

I don't see N-Zilla enjoying school.  Not even a babble of what happened at recesses.  When I ask him how school was his immediate reply is, "I didn't get in trouble".  That's sad.  That makes me sad.  Tons of sad face emoticons.  TONS!

So this summer we are staying home.  Our house. Getting to enjoy a much needed break.

Tomorrow is a new day.  Next school year is a new school year and we are still us but we will be rested. Focused.  Appreciating who we are and what our life is.  I will be doing more of the soul searching-I'm sure-while the kids will be happy to sleep in (mostly).
