Wee Scoops

Measure for Measure

Half a day half a day half a day onwards…

The children have half a day of school before the holidays.  Today was the tie-ceremony for the P7s as they move on to high school. I haven’t got a child in P7, but I went along anyway.

The children sang well and the tie thing was done very smoothly with only a few hairbands getting knocked askew in the process.

Despite the fact that this was a real transition for the P7s, and mediocrity didn’t get a look in at this ceremony, I find myself thinking about this quote fromThe Incredibles:

Helen: I can’t believe you don’t want to go to your own son’s graduation.
Bob: It’s not a graduation. He is moving from the 4th grade to the 5th grade.
Helen: It’s a ceremony!
Bob: It’s psychotic! They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity…

So, anyway, counting down to “summer” 🙂

Ignoring the weather forecasts. We have waterproofs.

  1. I have noticed that there is a backlash growing in intensity over the celebration of every milestone in a child’s life and that everyone is a winner. I don’t know, the world has gotten smaller and more critical, what with social media, the bullying problems we have in the U.S are so horrifying, the suicide rates are tragic. I would like it for the little ones to be proud and excited about moving up in school. They grow up so quickly and then it’s work, work, work.

  2. Oh, I know what you mean.
    But, could you send us something, weatherwise, to ignore because of having waterproofs? Thanks!
