After today we will have three weeks and one half day of school left. I am also counting down that I will be headed to see my daughter and her family, the day after school lets out. Cross the spring concert off the list, it was done last night. One more bus ride day, today. I will fix a meal for Youth Group, one more time. The dinner for the foreign exchange students is over. They leave when school lets out. Sometimes I feel as if life is a dizzying spin. I am just counting minutes this morning until time to go to school.

@GardenGerty I don't think so I heard they didn't use any snow days this year so they get out end of May.

@GardenGerty .....With a ODD child on the premises it should be fun. I hope his mom will take him out and about sometimes.

The school board may possibly vote Monday night to end early.

I was always quite giddy when the end of school was just a few weeks away. Although I had to go to committee meetings and tutor during the summer, the end of the school year was always looked forward to by me.

The end of the school year seems to give the opportunity for new beginnings. A dizzying thought in itself.

It varies so much around the country. I know our teens tried to do some things that involved others from around the US, and our early dismissal did not mesh well with their late one.

I'm sure it's nice to be ticking things off as the 'last time' occurs.

It is nice, and sometimes scary as well.
