1.  DGS1's last day is Friday (tomorrow).

2. We  never did when John was little; not sure if John and DIL have any, since their first year at it.

3.  Hmmm....it's kind of equal between my vintage sewing machine geek fest followed by a small staycation afterwards (end of the month) and a trip out to IL for the family picnic.

1.  The oldest finished about a month ago and the youngest has been out for a couple of weeks now.

2.  The kids do, with their friends. 

3.  Less travel, more home time...a better balance.

My kids have been out for a couple weeks.  They go to school on their last day, How's that for a tradition?  Lol, The number of moms that have told me they don't send their kids to school on the last day and call that normal surprises me, We do ice cream and dinner out too.  Vacation.

1. When is/was the last day of school for your kids/grandchildren? Recently, but I do not remember the exact date. It was her last day of exams, more specifically.

2. Do you have any last day traditions? No.

3.  What is the one thing that you are looking forward to the most, this summer? Toss-up between DD's graduation and finishing this project I am struggling with.
