No More Teachers Dirty Looks!
I don't know what it's like in your neck of the woods, but yesterday was the last day of school here - yay!!! No more lessons to prepare, no more homework to preside over!!!(cue the back flips). I'm down to one high-school age child...(plus 3 in college - but let's not go there) - so I don't have a lot of entertaining kids to figure out. I have 5 weeks of youngest child's summer planned out...and then he'll probably take 3 weeks of driver's ed - so I figure I've done my part. Any extra time he can find is all his.In Neeldom, we seldom get a real look at school age children...usually they will be younger siblings of the heroine - or occasionally children/wards/godchildren of the Rich Dutch Doctor. British children (in Neeldom) most often, though not exclusively, go to boarding school - especially the boys. While I find the idea rather appealing, in a way, I wonder how the kids like it.
