    I just don't know. :laugh:

    LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! It ended with having to give a zero on a test for cheating and I didn't get time to go say bye to my faves, but...no more rushing out the door at 7am and wondering what I forgot, no more sneaking my husband's electric razor out the door to shave my legs on the way to school, no more five hour long last five minutes of the day.

    On the other hand, no more hugs, no more poems eagerly handed over in return for candy, no more most interesting stories made up by tardy students in return for not receiving a tardy if the story including at least one dragon and one alien.

    On the other other hand, no more alone time with my husband on weekdays off, no more making everyone jealous because *my* husband brings me lunch and eats with me, no more paycheck after the last one comes out next month.

    On the other other other hand, I get to see my own kids all day long every day! Yay!

    On the other other other other hand, I see my kids all day long. Every day. Hrm.

    I'm gonna have to go think about this. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. It's been one amazing school year in oh-so-many ways, for my own kids and other kids alike.

    Very sad here. The end of a wonderful journey as our youngest just graduated from high school. All of the school years were enjoyable and his past four years were simply incredible. Also, a bit sad as his friends will soon be off to various universities. Thus, another journey begins...

    Awwww. That's gotta be an interesting feeling. I've yet to have one graduate, but will all too soon. I'm glad you had positive experiences and enjoyed the time. I know my high schoolers sure do make me feel blessed!
