The Pirates of Lincoln,CA

Ah, those end of the school year plays...such fun! And my grandsons were very into the pirate theme, celebrating the year's end and bringing on the lazy days of summer .


John, being a 4th grader, was onstage with his class; but Chris, not yet into grammar school, could not resist getting with the pirate theme and strutting his stuff as an audience member. It's pretty contagious.

As for Grandma...I had a good time, too, reliving those final school days when, as a teacher, the lesson plans got put aside  (well, sort of) and we just had fun, celebrating our year together. Nicer yet was the experience-on this occasion-of being an audience member, there to just enjoy, not being responsible for anyone other than myself.

Yay to the end of the school year and summer vacation! I can't help but celebrate; it's still in my blood, even though -being retired- every day is a holiday.


  1. Having been a teacher, you have more reason than I, but I am always taken aback by the flood of school calendar-triggered feelings. I feel the "hooray, summer's here" every June. And I also feel the quickened pulse of a new year (and an overwhelming need to go buy pencils and paper) every September.

  2. yay we only have 5 days left here ourselves...i look forward to having mine home...the pirate-hood looks like a lot of fun...smiles.

  3. Looks like such a fun play. And the boys look so cute! Although pirates probably wouldn't like being called cute : )

  4. Oh, they are so cute! And yes, I'm sure sitting there with no responsibilities made it all the more enjoyable!

  5. Arrrrgh, what cute mateys!

  6. Very cute.I remember taking Adam to see the Pirates of Penzance and he dressed as a pirate for weeks after, complete with his Nana's ankle boots!
