Who gets a bit misty eyed on the last day of school? I mean I'm excited too because it's summer vacation and we don't have to rush rush rush every morning. But at the same time it means my babies are one grade higher and therefore older. Maybe it's because mine are still young and I just haven't gotten used to it yet. Or maybe dh is right and I'm just a softy. Either way, am I alone?

I really did this year.  It was my daughter's last year at elementary school, she'll be going on to middle school.  And my son had the BEST teacher ever this past year.

I get sentimental at the end of a school year too.  So you are not alone.

Only when I realized that he would be home ALL DAY LONG during the summer.

I felt a little sad, but mostly I felt free, lol. I was tired of waking up so early to get ready for the bus.

When my kids were younger I did- now they are in high school, no more misty eyes. Just amazed at how fast they grow :(

We homeschool, but I'm sure I'd be misty eyed right with you!
