It's that time of year again, the time where parents' lives change as their children's schedule changes. We're really not sure who looks forward to summer more, the kids or the parents who have to 'adult' all year long. What we do know is that now that school is out, there are quite a few things that parents will enjoy doing (or in many cases not doing) for the next few months. We asked area parents what they were feeling as the end of school approached and got some hilarious (and relatable) responses. If you've got kids, no matter where you live, these may ring true for you as well.

Why does it feel it's your grades?
To all the parents, congratulations! You (and hopefully your child) have successfully survived another year of educational bliss. Enjoy your summer and remember, it all starts over again this fall (unless you have a graduate, in which case, you're FREE!)
