Last day of school!!

Woo Hoo!!! It was our last day of school today. I am excited and of course the kids are excited. No school for 2 weeks. I sooo needed this break and I think they were ready for a break too! I am going to bribe my kids into keeping up with their math. I am going to let them go to the dollar store and pick out a "prize" everytime they earn 5 points (a point equals 2 pages of math). Not to excited to bring more junk into the house, but I know it will motivate them to keep trudging along.
We are going to school this summer on and off. The kids weren't to thrilled about that at first. I explained we would take off a week or two every three weeks. I like being able to take time off in the fall and winter and so we can really enjoy doing fun stuff together and this allows us to do that. So I get a 2 week break to think about nothing but sleeping in and bein' lazy. yeah right!!! That's probably not gonna happen. Oh well, at least I won't have to be naggin' the kids about getting their work done. Gotta love summertime!
