End of Summer

The kids have four more days of summer before school starts. The end of summer should be hot and suitable weather to go swimming. Instead, we have cold, rainy weather. What's up with that?

Where did summer go?

This is AUGUST.

And why is school starting before Labor Day? Every year school lets out later and later and starts earlier and earlier. If kids are gonna have year-round school, why not get on with it and make it official instead of this fake-out they're doing now?

Or give the kids the last two weeks of December and the first two weeks of January off. At least then they could play with their Christmas toys. By the time they're tired of them, they'll be glad to go back to school.

Interesting times... I'm glad mine are all grown.



  1. They "rationalised" all the school holidays here a few years back and now the kids start school three weeks earlier - right at the very hottest part of summer. Uh-huh - that's rational!! Oh, and our summers are hot! Over 40C (104F) and most school rooms are not airconditioned.

  2. I'm beginning to think it's all crazy, you know?
