Today (finally) is the last day of school.
We had planned a "field day," and I went to work expecting a low-stress program of activities.
Apparently, I will never learn that that is NOT how public education works!
One hour ago, I found myself speeding through downtown Payson with 30 pizzas stuffed into my truck. The secretary was calling my cell phone to beg me to drive faster. I could hear hungry kids screaming in the background. And the first parents would be arriving to pick up their students in about 20 minutes.
I actually feel that that scene was a rather appropriate way to end this school year. Quintessential.
And I'll probably end up missing it. Go figure.
