Today marks the last day of the school year for our kids! Evan is now moving on to the 7th grade, and Sierra will become a 4th grader! Hard to believe... they are growing up so fast, and this school year went by in the blink of an eye for me.
However, that's not all..... no, we have another graduate as well. Tracie has formally finished her Medical Transcription program, and passed her final exams..... with honors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
So, it is official.... School's out for Summer!!!
OK, not actually, completely..... because Sierra has asked to go to summer school. YES, that is correct... she actually wants to go to summer school. In fact, she would rather go to summer school than to go on the vacations that we have planned for the summer!!!
As it turns out, the school is glad to have her as well..... because she will be able to develop her math and writing skills to an even higher level before the new year begins. Of course, for Sierra, it's all about being with her friends and teachers. I don't know that she understands that summer school will be different.... but hey, who am I to stop her from wanting to go to school?!?!?!?! :-)
And so, it is time to celebrate!!! We must celebrate that our kids have made it through another year of school. And we MUST celebrate that Tracie has finally finished her schooling, and is now ready to start looking for employment! :-)
Come on Summer..... we are ready!!!
And lastly, on a different note...... we are putting our home and property on the market for sale, in the next couple of weeks. We plan to downsize substantially, and financially. So, we have a very busy next couple of months ahead, as we start to pack, organize, sell, give away, etc.
