Friday marked another school year in the books for my kids. Olivia finished up 7th grade at Liberty Middle School and will attend next year as an 8th grader. Zachary finished up as a 6th grader and will attend Liberty Middle school with his sister next year as a 7th grader.
We celebrated the passing of another year with a ritual we have done for several years now — a bonfire party for all the kids to burn their homework. It has become quite a tradition with a large bonfire a barbeque, fireworks and of course boxes and boxes of old homework.
