Summer. Yay.

Let’s just say, “I’m not enthused.”

The Boy is officially off for summer vacation, having finished his last final exam an hour ago.

Since then, he’s terrorized Rosie by firing at least a hundred rounds from the Air Soft rifle he bought off of the Step-son. (Now I know why Manny was so keen on the thing leaving her house.)

He’s also begged for re-instatement of his video gaming rights.

Oy!

    He should run out of rounds before the week is out! Do not give up on the Video.

    Oh, Tricia!! You made me laugh with that!

    Trouble is, he has a big tub of biodegradable pellets that have now been scattered across my garden for the past hour and there are still a ton left. Aaaaarrgghh!

    Sounds like summer’s here! ;) Only, like, what, eleven/twelve weeks? :) At least he’s not whining about being bored, yet.

    And the summer has just begun.

    Gratefully, I had the forethought to forbid any type of guns or weapons in the home from day one. I actually remember thinking, “If my kid end’s up in a bell tower shooting random people, they won’t be able to blame me for it.” But, now I have a kid with two keyboards, an amp, and an ocarina to deal with all summer.

    Just how did he lose his video gaming rights?

    At least the weather is gorgeous!

    We had a long-standing “no guns” rule, but we found that he made guns out of every stick and oddly shaped rock he found… so gave in last year with the very fake-looking Air Soft handgun (it’s clear plastic, so cops won’t think it’s real.) I hated it then, and I still do… even more so now that there’s this machine gun type “toy” (OY!) in my house.

    The charming thing was… when he went to plug it in today to recharge, the adapter shorted out and a wonnnnnnnderful smell of burning plastic went wafting through the house.

    As The Hubster said when I texted him the events of the day, “FTW!”

    (FTW=For the win!!)

    @Joanie: Video games and Facebook access are tied to good grades. Enough said on why they were removed after last quarter. :(
