Countdown from 98

Some may think that summer begins on the 21st of June. Others, looking at our soggy weather, may think it will never arrive. But Middletown families know that the first true day of summer is the morning that you wake up to summer vacation.

That's today.

Back in September, I wrote about the first day of school. Yesterday, we spent the morning at Macdonough doing some last minute PTA fundraising (book fair!) and watching 5th grade graduation. It was great to see all the kids and their extended families gathered in the gym - many of them carrying balloons or bouquets for their graduates.

It's been a good year.

Now on to the business of celebrating the lazy days of summer -- all 98 of them until September 2nd. Let the sprinklers begin (on second thought, maybe we've had enough sprinkling for a bit!).
