The last day of school.
This was my favorite day of the entire school year.
No more school
No more books (except the ones I wanted to read)
No more teachers dirty looks.
The warm Summer days
stretched out before me.
Time to sit under a tree & daydream.
Play in the woods.
Go swimming & on picnics.
Elgin Oregon, the town I grew up in has a fabulous drive thru . They have the best BBQ fries you have ever tasted!
You could get an ice cream cone for a dime. Each student would get a dime to go to Ceasers and buy a chocolate or vanilla cone on the last day of school.
The first part of the day would be spent turning in your books. By lunch time we where free to do as we pleased.
Hanging around outside soaking up the sun & visiting with friends. I even remember one year a few of us sneaking down to the river to play for awhile.
