Johnathon Sandusky is very happy today: today is the last day of school; he is looking forward to a busy summer.

Thursday, June 5, 2008, 8:42 a.m., D.S.T., Nashville, TN~

Dear Journal~

Johnathon here.  School lets out today at noon; it's the last day!!!!  Woo-WHOO!!!!

That means in less than four hours I will be F R E E!!!!

I have been looking forward to this day since September!! LOL  Now I will be able to sleep in (as late as noon or even two if I so choose!), and I will be able to do whatever I want without worrying about homework or teachers being jerks!! LOL  Or other kids pickin' on me, like they sometimes do.

We have a very busy summer planned:  I will be performing this weekend at the CMA Music Fest and I plan on nabbin' as many autographs of my favorite stars as I can.  It's almost like seeing old friends again after time of being apart; it's like a reunion of sorts.  I always have the best time at the CMA Music Fest!

In addition to that, we will be performing at the Fourth of July BLAST! (also held here in Nashville) on July Fourth, and we will be going to Cedar Point in Ohio as well as the LeCajun Cajun Music Awards Show and Festival in Louisiana in August.  We will also be going to Las Vegas in just a few weeks.

While there, I am going to see if I can wheedle mama into her letting me ride the Stratosphere Tower; they say that's one wicked ride!  I'd like to experience it before I die; they say it's awesome!!

I hope I can do that:  I get so annoyed at people because they think because I am in a wheelchair or have this stupid MD, they should protect me, and I find that bothersome.  I am NOT that fragile; I'm a lot tougher than what people give m credit for!!  They need to stop handling me with kid gloves!!

Unfortunately because of our going to Ohio and Louisiana in August, I won't be able to attend this year's MDA camp.  That bothers me because I won't know who's died or who is still here; I always look forward to MDA camp; I always have the greatest time!!  For a week I can forget about my MD and have fun, act like a normal kid!!

Well, I have to go to my next class in a few, so I'll go now.  I will write in here again, probably in a few days or a week.  Until then, this is the Johnster signing off!  Take care and God bless!~

~Love, Johnathon. :D

I am a teacher and I have been going to school 1 way or another since 1955-a long time. Teachers also can't wait for that last bell. You captured that part well. I never thought though of the kids like Johnathon...even school is so different for them. A short but powerful story

Last day of school is always the greatest. But wanting to go to camp to see who died? That's so sad

Isn't it amazing how some childhood memories last forever. The first snow in the fall, the first warm day of spring when we seen a flower open and yea the freedom of knowing school was out for summer.

I remember looking forward to the last day of school when I was a kid as well, but as you grow older it is funny how you have a different take on those things
God Bless

I can recall from the students perspective anxiously awaiting the last day of school...and the excitement of summer vacation and the liberty and the freedom that came with it! Today I understand it from the teachers is still exciting as I can finally relax a little, get some spring cleaning done, repairs and spend time with my family and my friends at the den...but also the realization that each year that passes and comes to a close makes me one year older than I was this time last year! Seems as though times passes swifter as we get older. A great write, spoken as a true youth of today...enjoyed!

I hope you enjoy your summer and learn to forget what people think, their thoughts should not affect you one bit because their opnions are just that, opinions and are not fact.

Well Georg gave him some great ideas but it is unfortunate but people see a wheelchair and think right away they have to help with something, it took a lot for me to realize that my sister could do so much and that I could back off and let her live, she knows where we are if she needs help. Thanks for sharing a great write.

Newfie Hugs are on the way, Rose

Johnathon, if you want people to stop handling you with kid gloves, I suggest that that wheelchair of you will be sprayed with red engine paint, had a few cool racers stripes and a couple of decals in front and back saying, "You should have got out of my way dude" and, as you are at hit, keep handy one of those air-pressured blaster to scare the jeebeezes out of unkind people.
Have a gooooooooooood Summer!

Sounds like the Sandusky family has a busy, busy summer ahead - just hope they can afford it, with all those kids, and the gas prices ... otherwise, it's gonna be a bummer summer! LOL Well done, Karen.
