Is it June yet? If you are so over school, the latest parody video from the Holderness Family is for you!


The Holderness family is back, this time nailing how completely, totally over school we all are by this time of year. Their latest parody video is set to Katy Perry's "Firework" and we're loving it.

"Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, with some Cap'n Crunch is enough for lunch?"

Or maybe that a school project is slowly killing you?

As dad Penn Holderness sings, it's been nine months, "And we're all burned out!" I know my kids are fighting me on getting out of bed every morning and I don't blame them. Today, I barely got them to the school on time, and hell if I cared. I got them there, didn't I?

After all, aren't we all just coasting through until the last day of school? Sure our kids will be home and in our hair, but that sure beats having to help them with homework every night, and preparing lunches, and setting out their outfits, and doing laundry, and setting an alarm, and rushing for the bus.

Take heart folks: It's almost June and time for summer break!

Until then, it's a struggle to keep the clean underwear coming. Because let's face it; that "caring" mindset from September is so over.

"We are almost there. Time to let down your hair!" Penn croons. And I am so there with him. Bedtimes are getting later in our house, lunches are getting lazier, laundry is growing less important, and we are counting down the days until the last day of school, and freedom from grades and science fairs, and after-school activities.


So thanks to the Holderness family for getting us even more pumped up for summer break! Although, as mom Kim told, summer break presents challenges of its own. Good thing she has a plan! "If my kids say 'I'm bored' even once I'm shipping them off to the nearest grandparent," she said, adding, "The irony is I know it will get old fast!"

As for the Holderness family's plans for the summer, Kim told us, "We have strung together a series of summer camps as childcare. It's a complicated, color-coded system that's bound to fail. We do have a family summer bucket list started. My son wants to learn how to fish, my daughter wants to climb at least five different types of trees. For the record I'd like to sit on a beach with a fruity cocktail."

Soon enough it will be BTS time! Check out the Holderness family's awesome advice on the topic.
