While I don't get any extra time off, I do enjoy the relaxed pace. No ridiculous early wake-up -- whose idea was it to start middle school at 7:20a! The bus stops are scheduled as early as 6:20. I hang-up my hat as homework police - it's not a job I enjoy but it's necessary to monitor at our house.
Summer has been a bit different this year. My in-laws have been forced to downsize due to health reasons. While we had hoped they would move into assisted type living, they chose a small 2 bedroom condo. It was necessary & past time to make a move. Unfortunately, we've been blessed with the task of trying to empty their house of contents. We've spent 5 Saturdays in the garage alone. It's overwhelming to say the least. I pray they will find a buyer who would like a true fixer-upper, so they don't have to worry with it anymore.
How's your summer?
