The last day of school

The last day of school is that giddy feeling in your gut, warmed over by sunlight felt even through the clouds where your head goes until you see mom or dad and you realize that this is still the world, a sad fact that is not so sad when you think about it.

Summer vacation starts tomorrow. Our oldest son had perfect attendance this year. Today he got a certificate and a pencil and we gave him a hug. The twin boys got through kindergarten just fine, despite our unnecessary worry about their being on the young side of 5. They always tell you the time moves fast these days. Yeah, it does. No time to say more. No need.
