“Yes, because I get in the mood for summer, and I’m just not focused in school as well.”

I'm curious ... were any girls interviewed?

So yeah, Bobby told Sally that Ronnie was thinking about asking Casey, but Casey actually was looking for Al, and so no one's really. . . . wait, what?

Ok, yes, it's harder to concentrate. With only 20 days left, I hope there will be something left to rebuild on.

Some of these students look like they are in 5th grade. And the one at the top is going off to high school next year? They just look so young.

"They just look so young."

I thought the same thing.... then my daughter explained that maybe I'm just getting old... she may have something..... who knows...but I am staying in denial.

Multi..They are only funny the first 3 weeks, then watch out. Hold on to your mind. It's been a h#$$ of a year.

i look forward to a little break in the summer as well and i think those boys were hysterical but i did notice right off that there were no girls. it looked like pe or sports maybe the girls didnt want to be potographed sweaty? or maybe they got the boys messing around on the outskirts?

coolmom- I think boys are shamarter, and that is the reason for everything... (just kidding)

I find it harder to focus with lack of sleep regardless of the time of year...I like school so time of year doesn't bother's when I have no sleep, and no coffee, and cranky!

My granddaughter is about to graduate from KU and she is getting antsy. She has worked and studied so hard for sixteen years, and is going to be getting a masters. So those kids have a lot ahead of them. When I was there age, summer was for playing and just being kids. I am glad we didn't have organized activities to save us from ourselves. But, I remember those last days that seemed to go on forever. Memorial Day was a huge event, with lots of good food, and the family gathered in Paola, Kansas where most of our family is buried. I would get a new dress and shoes for the day and get my hair done at the salon. I am about to write my bio here. Sorry, totally lost track of -whatever-
