Good job parents, caregivers, teachers, admin, coaches, babysitters, bosses, neighbors, friends, and we can’t forget, wine and Khan Academy – for helping us all get to today – the last day of school. It really does take a village. Let’s all take a collective sigh and pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. Another school year in the books. You all deserve an A, or an E, or a 1 – whatever the report card symbol is these days for “Marvelous f**king job!” And now, time to slow down, unwind and relax a bit…before counting the weeks until school starts up again. (I give it two, maybe three weeks;) Have a festive, long weekend, and here are some fun links from near and far.
