All the moms in our neighborhood fill containers  with water balloons and water guns. Then hide at the bus stop and ambush the kids as they get off! After you’ve soaked them, give them a stash. Let the games begin.

I Have a Granddaughter Graduating This Year So Let Me Add Some Graduate Inspiration I Found…..

A Penny for Luck
Finally, if you’re looking for a positive message to leave for your students, teacher Robert Courtmanche share his end-of-year message to students.

“Each year we have an awards banquet, and I give the seniors a little gift and a penny with a message attached to it,” Courtemanche, a teacher at Galena Park (Texas) High School, told Education World. The wording of that message, penned several years ago by Courtemanche, follows:

My graduation gift to you is a penny, but why?

 

 

Look at the penny and you will understand.
The year is 2016—so you will always remember this time.

“Honest Abe” Lincoln is on the front—always be honest with yourself and others.

The word LIBERTY—as they say in the Navy, you are now “at liberty,” and that means you are free to do as you like. Don’t waste that freedom.

IN GOD WE TRUST—you must trust in someone or something; you can’t go through life alone. Trust in yourself, trust in God, trust the life you make.

A penny may be worth only one cent, and you can’t buy much with a penny anymore. However, every dollar is made up of 100 pennies, and every kid’s piggy bank starts with one penny. The penny, like each of you, is not made of pure silver or gold—but surely if you put enough pennies together, they will amount to something.

I ask that you go out into the world and amount to something. Set your own value on life, set your own standards and goals.

And, in case you need it …

Here’s a penny for luck.

 Have a Wonderful Summer,
