A Year of Smiles – Day 207

Reason to SMILE #207: END OF SUMMER/BEGINNING OF SCHOOL

 cheering-smiley-face

Summer is waning – 

Except for the heat.

And kids will soon be

At school in their seats.


Five days of freedom

Remain for a few.

ONLY FIVE DAYS?

But there’s so much to do!


There’s shopping for glue

And rulers and pens,

Pencils and paper –

Is that wide-ruled or thin?


There’s sports registration 

And after school care

There’s shopping for clothes – 

Do they need underwear?


There’s schedules to change 

And sleep to adjust;

There’s groceries to buy –

Those snacks are a must!


Oh, then there are shoes. 

I almost forgot.

For one little “swish”

Small fortunes are lost!


There’s so much to do

And so little time.

Oh, how did the days 

Of summer pass by?


While surveying lists

And mourning lost time,

Your kids in the house 

Are found running wild.


The TV is blaring;

Their rooms are a mess.

They’re fighting and nagging;

They’re being such pests.


You start to get up 

But halt in your tracks.

You look at the date,

Then SMILE and relax.


There’s only five days;

School soon will begin.

The house will be empty.

You’ll have peace once again! 😉
