Can you even believe I have only 20 more days until I go back to work? How did that happen? I could have sworn it was summer! How is it I have to go back to work so soon?
It's one of those bizarre things about where we live. I grew up in New Jersey. School started after Labor day and ended sometime in June - usually the 3rd week or so. Summer was July and August.
Here, that's not the case. Here, school starts in the beginning of August and ends before Memorial Day. Summer here is June and July.
In case you haven't noticed, for the most part, August is hotter than June. I'd rather go into June than begin in August...especially EARLY August!
When we lived in North Carolina, it wasn't so bad. We started in August, but it was the last week of August, and we went into the second week of June. That was actually pretty good, except that we were in school for both Memorial Day and Labor Day.
I guess it is better than year-round school...(unless that's your thing.).
