Heritage Schoolhouse - closed for summer!

There's a time in each year that we always hold dear,
Good old summertime!
With the birds and the trees and sweet scented breezes,
Good old summertime!

When your day's work is over, then you are in clover,
And life is one beautiful rhyme,
No trouble annoying, each one is enjoying,
The good old summertime!

Those are days full of pleasure we now fondly treasure
When we never thought it a crime
To go stealing cherries with face brown as berries
In the good old summer time!

~from "The Good Old Summertime"
composed by George Evans, lyrics by Ren Shields

Thank you Kelli - we are very excited to start summertime. Do you school through the summer or take a break?
