When I was a kid, summer was three months long. We got out of school in early May and went back after Labor Day. Now, kids are lucky if they get a full two month break. My littles have already been back at it for over a week. Well, Dain's back at it in second grade. And Ro is in preschool three days a week. Up until now, she's been staying with my mother-in-law. She's excited to finally be going to big kid school.
