School’s Out!

Posted on Thursday 4 June 2009

I’m outside on the patio right now, researching for a post about Obama’s speech in Cairo today.  (Added:  post’s finally up!)    It’s a breezy, not-yet-hot day — and I’m anticipating the arrival of any number of hyper-excited young teenagers here any second.

It’s time to cue Alice:  School’s Out for Summer!

It’s quite amazing.  I can actually hear them coming!  Cars are honking on the main road a few blocks away, and kids are cheering in response.  Madness!

Summer at last — swimming, sleeping, playing (and sleeping some more).  Lazy crazy days, leading to many happy memories for Adorable Child and her friends in the years ahead.

But…  I wonder how long it’ll be before I’m counting the minutes until they return to classes?  And quiet sanity…

    Let’s start a pool. I’ll take “Next Monday, at 9:00 AM”. :)

    Have a happy summer!

    Pfft! I guess I can’t participate in the pool, but if I could, I’d say sometime this evening… LOL!

    I’m figuring you calculated it out yesterday

    “I’m figuring you calculated it out yesterday ”

    Haha! No, yesterday was still too far removed from today’s reality — which has, btw, evolved into a 7-girl sleepover. (ACK!!!) Did I say sometime this evening? When’s school start?

    As someone without kids, the best part of “school’s out” for me is no more worries about driving thru school zones!
