    Always remember that feeling, the count-down!

    If there was a soundtrack with this for Nancy, I’d imagine “Sunshine Lollipops and Rainbows” by Leslie Gore…..

    Yeah … the ol’ days. Now kids have to keep up with soccer camp, extra school to be ready for college …we just went to the beach every day.

    One month???

    I remember we were let out a few days shortly before or after Memorial Day, depending on how many “snow days” we accumulated.

    (public school in Oklahoma)

    now, that’s a downer, Susan!
    We got out of school the first week of June. No snow days, but we started the first day after Labor Day in September. A real bummer having to come back after Memorial Day.

    (Sound of “tone arm” scratching across “Sunshine….” record) Awwww, maaaan!

    Actually, though some elementary schools take final exams, not all do, these days…. and those who do, do it more, not for pass/fail of grade, but to see which section of the next grade to place them in, which learning strategies, if any, to utilize to help the child in “weaker areas”, and also mostly…..

    the year end scores to show the teacher’s overall teaching ability….

    But I think Nancy is a bright 8 y.o. … I think she did alright, any way you slice it……

    She’s good, live and studio wise! And there’s an Interesting interview that pops up in the suggestions to see after the clip is done!

    I used to listen to “Stairway…” myself, for road trips, etc! But I don’t now for several reasons, but that’s just me…

    it’s bouncy in the middle and end, that’s for sure, but it’s noooot as happy or carefree as you may think…. If you don’t believe me, check out “Songfacts.com”….

    We only have 7 more days here…although school starts in early August in the Atlanta area. I grew up where we started after Labor Day and finished in June. In the South, I do like starting summer break before it’s stifling hot.

    Yeah, ha ha! But he’s nobody’s fool…..

    And between his strengths and weaknesses and Nancy’s, both his and hers each compliment and support the other, though…. they make a GREAT team!
