Is It Summer Vacation Yet?
Phillip Seymour Hoffman has ants in his apartment. Our exterminator told us so. This has nothing to do with the rest of this post but it made me feel better about having ants in our apartment.

As I write this the kids have 2.5 days of school before they are finished with The School Year That Ate My Brain. Seriously, this year kicked my ass. I thought it was because this was our first year having two kids in school. Learning curve, you know? But all our friends who have 1+ kids in school have assured us that it will only get worse as they get older. Huzzah!

Harry is a bit sad to leave school. He really likes his teachers and all the friends he made this year. Sophie, on the other hand, who studied for the state tests and started to learn to play an instrument (viola), and read until her eyeballs bled (not really) and basically worked her tail off, is DONE. She's sick of school, tired of homework, tired of me badgering her about doing her homework, tired of math, tired of the routine and really, just tired.

The first order of business for Sophie once school lets out is go with her Nana to Florida for a week. She's really looking forward to the trip, so much so that she can hardly bear these last few days. This morning as she was getting ready (and I was badgering her to "get it together already!"), John said "Don't worry. Just a few more days left, then Nana will come rescue you." Because Nana will liberate Sophie from her oppressors I've now dubbed this upcoming trip of hers the Nana-Kindertransport.

Happy summer vacation, everyone!
