Good Money Up In Smoke

This weekend my children celebrated the end of school. They stayed up late. They played outside in the dark. They had friends sleep over. They slept in. And, they burned their largely unused workbooks. Yes, that's right. We had a little bonfire of books that we paid for with book fees (free and public education what, now?) and that my children barely used. If I hadn't been sipping an adult beverage I might have shed a tear or two at the thought of that money drifting into the air.
So, yes, we started our Memorial day celebration with a bonfire. Because nothing says "Goodbye school, hello Summer" like flying ash and wafting smoke, right?
