The Final Day of School

For as long as I can remember, the first day of school has always been my favorite. The energy, the excitement, the fresh start— there’s just something about it that I look forward to each year. Honestly, it’s what gets me through the summer.

And if the first day of school is my favorite, I may have to say the final day of school is my least favorite. We go, go, go, go, go, go, then stop. Abruptly. Even though the landing gear has been down for a little while, it’s almost like I never see the final day of school coming until it’s here.

Don’t get me wrong— I love the summer. I look forward to spending a week at Camp Caudle with my kids, to traveling to see family, to enjoying a week at the beach, and to slowing down and having more flexibility in my schedule. Those are all going to be great experiences; however, I’m going to miss having school because Mustang Mountain is a special place.

Even though the final day of school isn’t so much fun for me, I have some good news— the best day of the year is only 80 days away. I can’t wait!
