This grade school daughter, friend, student, niece and grandchild wakes up a routine Tuesday morning thinking not of her homework and school but the soon arriving summer vacation and the sport activities she signed up for. 

A simple breakfast ends with mom’s promise of pizza tonight because her grades look better this year.

The bus arrives packed with backpacks full of completed homework. Collective chatterings echoes throughout the bus about nothing but everything important to growing grade school minds. The bus driver says to himself, “Thank goodness it’s only one more week of this.”

Smiles abound nearing the final days of this grade and promoted to the next growing level of this adventure we call life.

Bragging to her friends she says, “We’re having pizza tonight!”
