My kids have been home since May 19th; they just had the math exams to take this past week so were happy to have all these days off. Truly, doing well in school pays! We were a bit too relaxed though. I got a call Wed. at 8:15 am (I'd been awake a mere 15 minutes) that the teacher was going to mark Dagny absent for her final. And possibly a zero too. Oy! I wonder whether this is a family trait. When I was in college I missed my biology exam because I was in one of the practice rooms in the music department playing the piano and lost track of time -- 2 hrs felt like 20 min. I got lucky with my professor. I told him the truth and he believed me. He allowed me to take the exam in his office even though the answers had been posted.
Dagny also got lucky. She was already awake, so she got dressed in a hurry (no breakfast) and I drove her to school. We're only half a mile away so she was able to go in to take her exam by 8:40. She returned home happy and hungry. I doubt she'll make this mistake again. She'll check and double check to make sure she has the time right for exams.
There is such a lightness in our days now, with both school and sports over. We've been sleeping in, reading, watching movies, playing with the pets and eating a lot of fruit. I really hope this summer we can de-clutter our home a little; give away the books and things we've outgrown, tidy up the attic and garage. If we've not used something in a couple of years, it might as well go.
It's a rainy weekend with a tropical storm but the kids are home from the farmer's market. Michael cooked up a big batch of pulled pork so it's a relaxing weekend. I'm sure by next weekend the kids will be itching to do something.
