Hard to believe it, especially with 100 degree heat, but the kids are ready to get back at school..if not this week, then more than likely the following week. Remember when summer vacation included the summer month of August. School used to start after Labor Day. I am all for change, but I am not sure about the school year becoming more “year round.” I know having the week off in the Fall and Spring made it nice to visit college campuses and squeeze in a family trip. But, sitting in “portable” classrooms in 100 plus degree heat does not sound like fun to me. So…what do you think?? And…ready for this…The NU football season starts next week…August 24th vs McQueen High School.
