As Alice Cooper screeched into a microphone before even I was born...  
"School's out for Summer!"

Summer officially starts today at noon, as that's when the boys get out of school.

This is a double-edged sword, folks.  Pool, sleeping in (I hope), no responsibility... but also they'll be home ALL THE TIME.  I love them, but *head hits desk*  they're loud, you know? 

Thankfully, the little girl across the street has started babysitting.

Also, re: bad Mom post on Tuesday?  The award I didn't see Aaron receive was the 'Artist Award.'  I can only hope he doesn't go all weird and cut off his ear.

That's it.  I won't start counting down  the days 'til Mid-August...  yet.  :)

I think we can all look back and see what we did to our own Mothers...I know I drove mine crazy. I swear she 'locked' us outside to play all summer long...gee...I wonder why she said 'and don't come back until lunchtime'...ha ha ha

Just remember to take some time for yourself. Even if it's only 5 seconds...

Good luck!

I actually don't mind school holidays now, but my kids are a bit older...

This is exactly why we bought a trampoline with an enclosure - so we could zip up the little door and trap them in our gated back yard. ;)

And yes - I think Aaron is safe from the whole ear cutting off thing until he has been jilted by love. Give him a couple years. ;) (and isn't the ear thing better than painting himself in drag with a silly smile?)

You're much better than I. I start counting down the weeks in early July, and I already have August 18th circled on my calendar--the day they start up again. :)

Hee! I went in search of 'Dazed and Confused' when I saw your post, lol! I have a feeling that my summer is going to fly by. It'll be next summer that I want to spork my eyes out.
