And I’m glad.
I think I dislike the school year more than my kids do.
I dislike homework.
I dislike studying.
I hate quizzes.
I dislike reading logs and state capital quizzes.
I dislike all of it.
I like summer mornings. I like the kids sleeping in. I like waking up to sunshine and going to bed hearing sprinklers. I like kids playing outside and creating memories as a family and getting in the car and going out for ice cream just because it felt like an ice cream kind of day.
School gets in the way of all that.
Oh, it’s necessary. It’s good for my kids to grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.
But we have only 3 1/2 days of school left.
And then summer is finally here.
So don’t mind me if I’m a little distracted. School’s almost out. The sun is shining.
And I’ve got memories (that will last far longer than a memorized fact or an algebra equation) to create with my family.
