A Taste of Summer

Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop

Tuesday was the last day of school for my girls. I love watching all the school kids leave the building, so excited that it is the last day of school. A few of them have gifts for their teachers. Even the bus drivers excitedly honk their horn BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP as if saying “Have a great Summer, see ya in the fall!” I absolutely LOVE seeing the teachers give their students hugs while wishing them a safe and happy summer. Many of us parents have our own tradition, on the last day of school we take the kids out to eat. It’s an exciting time. Summer for children is almost magical. Staying up late, picnics and barbecues, going to the beach, park and even the zoo. Hot days spent at the ice cream shop, and you know for the kids, summer last an eternity. It is a time for me when I put away all the pictures and report cards that I have accumulated this school year and look ahead to the next. It’s almost a time for reflecting, at least to those of us that still have young kids…….and then when Monday comes around, I will be at the point where I will have lost my mind and will be anxiously counting down the days till school starts up again.
