Today started with a graduation program for my grandson's 5th grade graduation. He is my eldest grandchild and it was a memorable moment for everyone. But it was very long and not very enteraining compared to my 6th grade graduation. The one today consisted of award hand outs and then graduation certificate handouts, one song by the graduating class and then a video slide of the students. The video and the songs were the best part.
If you haven't guessed by now I love songs, and videos. I am always thinking or relating things to songs I have heard and have stored away in my memory its just the songs I hear are dated because if the era I grew up in.
Speaking of graduations none of my 3 children ever had a graduation until high school because the superintendent at the time believed that it wasn't an important event to honor until high school. Needless to say my kids miss out on this important milestone in each child's life.
For some of you school is still in session until the middle of June. I personally prefer school ending in June so that school doesn't start back in the fall until after labor day. I just think its too hot to be attending school in August and make the elementary children go out to play in the triple digit heat. I understand small children get fidgety but when its that hot the children just hide under the playground equipment to get out of the sun and find a little cooler area to escape.
Since some of you are still in school and may want to give your teacher or teachers a present honoring the great job they have done with your child, I have a perfect gift for them. Aprons here are just a few of the items I sell on my website.
Here is the song from Alice Cooper about School's Out. I'm personally not a fan of Alice but this one song is such a classic its worth mentioning. Also the middle school played it today with their morning announcements.
