While this is not officially the last week of summer, it always seems like it is.

The last week leading up to Labor Day has just about everyone in school. The last throws of a vacation are being used up. On top of it fall sports are in full swing. Anything you wanted to accomplish in the summer should be done.


Well, hopefully because starting soon your Saturday’s and most likely Sundays are going to be overtaken by football. So, here is to you getting all your summer projects, vacations, and down time you have done because the chances of those being accomplished will be diminished drastically.

Enjoy Ovaltine
