And the livin' is easy."
Ira Gershwin and DuBose Heyward
DAY 245: Friday, June 11, 2010 ... noon ... the LAST set of students for the school year have left my room! I've already cleaned the room, the walls are stripped, and just about everything is put away. We have a couple of work days on Monday and Tuesday next week - mostly "wrapping-up" paperwork - but as far as we're concerned ... SUMMER VACATION HAS BEGUN!! GRATEFUL ... GRATEFUL ... GRATEFUL!
12:25 ... the final school bell has rung ... lots of screaming ... SEE YA, kids!
