Final Day of School

A quick Friday 5 today:

1. Last day of exams for EB and H-J, last day of 4th grade for SM.

2. MusicMan had his last day more than a week ago.

4. MM’s grad party is tonight. I finally convinced him to have one — which might have been silly on my part, because it is a lot of work and I don’t even know if more than a handful are coming).  And also because…

5. The graduation ceremony begins at 9am tomorrow morning, so we’ll be hopping here by 7am.

*He’s going to college — I just don’t get to take him there. We’re putting him on an airplane and waving goodbye.

  3. Tears and laugher and celebrations are the ingredients for a full life
