We have 3 and 1/2 more days of school after today. The 12YO has a full-blown case of Summer-itis. His teacher said that this is not uncommon for kids who will be going to a different school next year. He just flat out does not want to complete his homework.
The last 11 weeks have been difficult first with Dad changing job and his start time so that the morning routine was turned upside down. Then the house went on the Market and we made plans to move him away from the school he has been in since Kindergarten, the only house and neighborhood he has known, the friends... Keeing his room presentable has been a mighty challenge for him, but he has rose admirably to it. Before last night it had been a full 10 days since I last asked "How many times do we have to tell you the house hunters look in closets to see how much room they have? You cannot hide stuff in the closet." The week after school is out he will be going to Baseball camp in the morning and hanging out in Mom's office in the afternoon. Then he is going to stay with Grandma and Grandpa at their lake house for three weeks. He did express a concern that we might move while he is gone, but I told him once and I need to tell him again, that moving takes time and we are willing to fly him home if it comes down to it.
Meanwhile, this week has been a little slow. We did have someone come view it on Wednesday. Of course I forgot to open the blinds in the bedroom.
Have a great weekend!
