May is such a busy month for us. With all of the end of school activities (induction ceremonies, chorus concerts, field day, etc.) and all of the extracurricular activities (piano recitals, awards ceremonies, etc.) it's no wonder I start looking forward to the final day of school, when my kids get off the bus, and at least for a few days, the daily schedule winds down.
Usually, on the last day of school my children throw down their backpacks and pick up a beach towel and head for the neighborhood pool -- it's a tradition of sorts.
But I know many families celebrate the end of the school year with an annual tradition. Something they do every year to mark the beginning of another summer together. Does yours? If so, what's your family's end of school year tradition?
