Letters of Intent and Happy Friday Follow!


Linking up today with Foursons for letters of intent!   Go to her blog and check out other letters written by other bloggers!  You're sure to laugh, you're sure to cry, you're sure to link your own post up!

Dear School System:

Can I ask what is the point behind the last 3 days of school being 1/2 days?  I mean seriously, tomorrow is the last full day of school.  Then Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I need to take the boys to school at 9:20 and then pick them up at 12:55pm.  What's the point?  It isn't like they're going to do anything! That isn't enough time for me to do anything either!

Basically tomorrow is the last day of school.  Then they'll have 3 days to play around with their friends for 3 hours each day.  I should just keep them home Monday-Wednesday, but that would start my summer headache a few days early and I'm not ready to do that yet! I think whomever makes the school calender needs to have more common sense.

A mother who thinks this is pointless.


If you're here from Friday Follow....Welcome!!

My name is Heather and I'm the grumpy ol' troll who lives inside this blog.  ;)  I'm a mother to 3 of the cutest, roughest, most awesome, toughest, boys on the planet.  I'm pregnant with our 4th (and last!) child.

Pull up a chair and read a few entries!  Leave a comment to make me feel better for sitting here blogging instead of doing the laundry.

I'm sure the teachers agree with you, too!

Big Mama Cass said...

I think that is silly!! That doesn't make any sense at all! Sheesh.

The Simple Life said...

I'm here from Friday Follow me and LOI!

We kept my son out for the last 2 1/2 day's and went on vacation (of course his last 2 days were the Wednesday and Thursday before Memorial day)

Here's to a nice summer vacation from school (for the kids of course)

I don't blame you for blogging and nt doing the laundry - who wants to do housework?

Bits-n-Pieces said...

oh yes, the teachers do agree (take it from me!) but there are so many days that they have to take attendance for...and as long as they put in the minimum number of hours, that day counts. OUR "short" days are from 7:45-2:00 (normal end of day is it's really NOT a short day, but they like to make us think it is.)
and of course Seniors who have graduated, and high schoolers exempt from tests aren't there anyway, so it's our little ones that are the only ones still going. SO NOT FAIR! but that's the way it goes!

Foursons said...

I'm sure it has something to do with state mandated days or something, but why not just do 1 full day and 1 half day to make it simpler? I'd be tempted to not send my kiddos either. And yikes that y'all are STILL in school!

Thanks for linking up!

Beth Zimmerman said...

That's ridiculous and I'm sure the teachers aren't fans of that plan either!

Congrats on the 4th (and final?). Any word yet on whether or not you'll get a little estrogen support? ;)
