Last week of regular school year

This last week of the year is full of half days, so today is the last full day of school for both kids. Tomorrow is half day for both and A.'s last day; then Thursday is T.'s last day and slightly less than a half day for him. They'll start their summer programs after the holiday weekend.

In the meantime, the schools are sending lots and lots of things home every single day. Yesterday, A. came home with a full grocery bag in addition to everything in her backpack. Some of it was immediately "filed", and I've been sorting through more of it today. Along the way, I took the time today to sort through a lot of happy meal toys and similar and move some of them along as well.

I feel like, given how much just went out in bags, that it should be a lot more apparent that I've been decluttering. Alas, it doesn't look much different. I suppose the good news is that should minimize complaining from the kids.
