It's graduation night and the high school traditions are running wild. Saturday night was Senior Class Trip, and overnighter to the amusement park. The park closed to the public in the evening and opened up to high school senior class trips only for the rest of the night. The kids rode rides until 6am and had a very long, sleepy bus ride home. Tonight is the annual seniors parking lot camp-out. The senior class camp out in the school parking lot for the night, having a cook-out and the whole shebang. I guess they just can't get enough of the school. These aren't your normal high school kids though, WE said that when the subject of a senior skip day came up, the majority response was: We can't do that, we'd miss a day of school! Yeah, they actually said that, it's all about getting good grades and an education around here. We've got a whole town of over achievers. Tomorrow is the senior breakfast at the school followed by graduation ceremony practice then the parade of seniors driving their cars around town, blowing their horns and generally getting one last hurrah in before the pass the upper classman torch to the juniors. I can't believe my little WE is graduating tomorrow night. It seems like only yesterday he was eating worms to impress the girls and look where he is now. Time flies.
The rest of the school, however, still have 2 weeks left to go before their summer begins, if it ever does. We've had about 2 days where the temps got in the 70's, otherwise, this spring has been a wet, cold, miserable bust. I think we had a single track meet where we didn't have to bundle up in full on winter gear. A friend lost all his tomato and pepper plants last week due to frost, he jumped the gun and put in his garden early. Last year he lucked out and it worked, not so much this year though. We don't even have our garden plowed up yet, it's been too wet and what's the point? It's too cold for anything to grow right now anyway. I can't wait for summer.
