back to school?

Really? Did you know that mine start on aug 19th? that's not too far away! i am really ready....and not ready. i tend to like to sleep in...and well, school days ruin that. i also like to stay up late...and summers are good for that.

but routine...kids & adults really do thrive on a routine don't they? and school is good for that, good for daily socializing, excercise, etc. and well...they learn while at school.

i have to admit...i bought workbooks for the kids to do this summer....do you know how many hours we've spent on them ??? ZERO! Not a damn minute! oh no! hope they don't get stupid over the summer! haha!

the summer heat has not been too hot either...so it's been a nice summer!

I guess it's a Catch 22 having the little ones in school! I couldn't wait for mine to rush off to school until I read your post! I guess there's a lot of work involved with that in and of itself! No breaks for the mommies, huh?

Oh, and real summer breaks (the kind without workbooks) are good for the spirit! They'll get whipped into shape at school in no time...lol :)

Let the kids play!!! As a teacher, I'd rather see my students do real life things in the summer: read, buy something at the store (on a budget so they have to plan), learn how to get to and from someplace using a map and a watch so they know how to plan time, visit places that open the world to them such as zoos, museums, roadtrips, libraries. You don't have to do workbooks!!! :) Just keep their brain alive with everyday normal stuff!
