End of the Year Ideas???

Hey everyone, I need some ideas of fun (Easy) things to do the last week of school. Do you have any memories from your childhood of things you enjoyed doing or something you've heard that's been done? I have stuff to do every day but sometimes we just need that "filler" activity for a few minutes. I'd love any suggestions!

Report Cards

I'm done with 15 out of 28 report cards. Plugging through them! With 28 report cards to complete at 3 pages each with a minimum of 86 entries for each child (not including comments which take FOREVER), I'm figuring I have over 2,408 entries to make on report cards this week! and you wonder why I don't like report cards. It's not quite as cut and dried as it used to be with percent grades. The only percents on my report card are spelling and vocabulary and that's just because they're not in the standards but the kids are tested on them so I include the scores. Well, there's my complaining for the night. Don't have much else on my mind to write about. My goal is to finish them tomorrow...that's probably not going to happen, but a girl can dream right?

Well, it officially feels like summer! It was 103 yesterday and definitely over 100 again today. I'm guessing 108 but can't confirm that. Went to the pool 3 times in the past 3 days! Even then, I swim a little, get out and within minutes I'm feeling ready for another dip. I had forgotten how relaxing the pool can be! Phil won't come with me and I don't prefer to go alone so I haven't really been until now. At this point, I'll go by myself even if he won't because it's too hot to stay away. (If any of my friends wants to come hang out at the pool...let me know. :) We have 3 and I'd love the company.

As you can tell from my above blogging, I don't really have anything interesting to say. I really should be working on report cards and correcting writing which are an absolutely DRAG! So, I blog instead. Anyone want to spend HOURS doing my report cards for me? I'll clean your house, make dinner or run errands...anything but standards based report cards. next week they'll be done. The sooner the better right? Guess I'd better persevere a little more on them tonight. Later.
