If you are reading this late Wednesday afternoon, you are done! Oh sure, I mean most of the kids are done with school, but in many – and I say many – ways, we as the parents are also done.
If you are also the parent of a high school student, I’m sorry, there’s still one more day ahead for you. Oh sure, you will hear about it entirely tonight and again in the morning until they get on the bus or drive to school for the last time this year.
If you need a comeback, hey that snow day – as late as it was – was glorious! It was ridiculous if you lived in White Rock, but no less glorious to stay in our pajamas that morning.
Oh and OK if you are married to someone that works in a school, you will get a repeat of what happened on Thursday again on Friday.
This day and age, we often hear how kids today don’t appreciate the people that give us the freedoms we appreciate today.
I would like to say that as we approach the last few days of school, local teenagers are still working at letting our service men and women know they are appreciated throughout the year.
So while many will spend the weekend enjoying parties and an extra day off, take the time to give thanks to those that gave their lives in honor of our country and also appreciate those that serve today.
