Can you believe the end of the school year is upon us? Seems as we get older and older the time goes by faster and faster.

1. When is the last day of school for your children?

2. Are you happy with their grades for the year?

3. Any parents have children graduating (any years)?

4. What are your children's summer plans?

And yes, I added a 2 to my name as I am having a problem posting and do not know why.

1. When is the last day of school for your children?



I haven't checked but it's the later part of June sometime.



2. Are you happy with their grades for the year?



There are four kids in school in this house. Happiness with grades goes: extremely happy, content, unhappy, extremely happy. If I can add in my own grades that'd be another extremely happy.



3. Any parents have children graduating (any years)?



Not this year.



4. What are your children's summer plans?



Some sports camps for two kids, lots of swimming for everyone, one week long trip to see my family.

Add on to what my kids will be doing this summer. DD3 just got an internship at a radio station.

Congrats!


I can add to my list as well, one of the high school coaches sent another email for a second summer camp for one of the sports that my son plays and plans on playing in high school.

Very cool! Is that the employment field she wants to be in?

Yes and no.

When she was in high school working for this type of radio station was her dream job but she knew that she would be limiting herself (in available jobs) if she had that as her only goal so her degree is in mass communication which opens up a wider range of job possibilities.

For the last couple of years she has worked for her college radio station.

That's great and will probably be fun for her, especially since it was a dream job in the past.
