School is out here today where I live in metro Hotlanta. The kids are ecstatic, of course – but not as much as the teachers. When I was a kid I thought the teachers were sad when school was out but when I was a teacher I knew differently. :-)
For some strange reason, traffic is always much lighter in the summer. And the stores and restaurants are full of kids – for about a month – and then they disappear. So for all your celebrating kids and families, welcome to the summer vacation even though it’s still spring. August and the new school year will be here soon enough.
