Short Timer's Disease!

We're in the last two weeks of our ninth year of homeschooling. THE NINTH YEAR! Can you believe it? I can't, nor can I really wrap my mind around the idea that Reilly's going to be in high school next year. When we started this homeschooling thing so long ago, high school seems like a vague mist in the far, far future. The fact that that "future" is our "now" is testimony to the fact that if I can do this, anyone can!
Right now we are all struggling with what I call Short Timer's Disease. We only have eight days of school left, and three of those are going to be spent  at Practicum, a three day seminar for Classical Conversations, which we are starting next year. What we are struggling with in school right now is the fact that we have finished up books and various things, and we don't really have enough time to start anything new. We don't have any class parties, yearbook signings, or assemblies to attend, so our school just sort of peters out. To quote...well, actually to TWIST a quote from "The Hollow Men", by T.S. Elliot, "...this is how our school ends. Not with a bang, but with a whimper."
Bring on summer!
