My oldest daughter is in middle school now and her school gives finals at the end of the year. Personally I think it's a lot of stress and pressure at the end of the year that these kids don't need. Most of the schools in the area don't give them, but of course my daughter's school does.
What does this mean? Well basically it means we're going to have a stressed out lunatic on our hands for the week who would sooner yell at her sister and her oh so patient mother than to study for her exams. She's mentally done at this point. Summer has started in her eyes so it's a little bit of a fight to make sure she's ready for the tests. She has one everyday this week except for Friday and has the last one Monday. I just have to try to keep her focused until then. She's worked so hard all year I would hate for her to not do well this last semester simply because she's tired of school. That's just not acceptable. Well wish me luck it's going to be a fun week.
