School's out for the summer... yay! No more getting up at the crack of dawn to
drag the 12 year old out of bed. No more
fighting Angry Mom traffic to drop him off every morning at school. No more homework taking up hours of my time
every afternoon (yes, I know it's HIS homework, but tell that to his teachers
who require parental involvement at EVERY step of the way still). And no more obsessively checking his grades
online every day, refreshing to make sure no teachers have lost any assignments
before report cards are due. (You'd be
surprised how often this happened last year!)
Life is good here in the Halliday household.
And just when I feel like I've got this whole middle school thing down... my son tells me he's doing two summer camps this year. One is at the high school and the other is at Stanford University. High school and college this summer?! When did my baby grow up on me?
