This school year has finally ended. It was over at 1:30 today.
The desks are cleaned.
and hot dogs consumed.
I wished them all well and gave some advice from my arsenol of wisdom about choosing friends, learning life-lessons, and navigating the confusing maze known as middle school. I hope the best for each one of them and I did, indeed, shed my tears as they left elementary school as elementary students for the last time today.
Closing another school year is always so bittersweet for me.
