Tomorrow, the kids finally–finally!–are done with school. I’m not entirely sure why school dragged on so long. People are claiming we didn’t even use all our snow days, so that doesn’t quite explain it. Of course, Labor Day was late this year, so that partially explains it (given that school begins the day after Labor Day). It’s really been kind of silly. Geeky Girl hasn’t done all that much for at least a week. Geeky Boy does have exams, but things seemed to slow down the last week or so, with little homework.
We’re looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be traveling a bit. When we return, I’ll give you all the lowdown. After that, we’re pretty much done for the summer. We’ll squeeze in a visit to relatives late in the summer, but otherwise, we’re going to just be hanging out at home and the pool. I’ll be doing a little bit of work to prepare for classes in the fall, but I’m not that concerned, given that I’ve already done a fair amount. I’m really going to try not to work too much before my official start date. I know things will be busy enough once work begins. We also have a lot of other things going on this summer, which I’m not quite at liberty to reveal just yet, but I’ll let you know. In the meantime, stay cool, and I’ll be back with more news in a week or so.
