Summer, Now You See It…Now You Don’t!


We spent this weekend on a mini summer vacation. We drove from Houston up to Dallas to go see an IRL race. The girls were great and did not fight the entire trip. Before the race started Robbie Knievel jumped 21 Hummers on his motorcycle. We had an awesome time and the girls even got to see the winner of the race, Scott Dixon. He shook their hands as well! My youngest of course stated that she would never wash her hand again.

We came home to find a message on our phone stating that our oldest daughter’s summer was officially over! She will be spending half of her summer retaking World History. Being a Freshman in high school she couldn’t figure out that not turning in assignments and not studying for tests meant that you were not going to pass. So, she will be spending 3 weeks in summer school and her bank account will be missing $150 that our great school district charges for each class. Yes, we are mean parents and we made her pay for it since she was the one who failed the class. Hopefully she will learn her lesson from it!

  1. Uh oh. Good for you for making her take responsibility. I hope it’s an expensive lesson learned!

  2. I agree with K.T. – excellent learning experience for your daughter. Way cool on getting to see Robbie Knievel make the jump live.

  3. Thanks for the moral support. But I am still the meanest mom in the whole wide world. But the nice thing is she’s not talking to me right now! I know it won’t last long but I am enjoying the peace!
