We never went back to school until after Labor Day! Now, school is starting here on August 21, or 25, depending on the district. I think it's ridiculous. Summer was a wonderful time when I was a kid. Long days and warm summer nights with a million crickets chirping, and not so much of a strict schedule.

Summer isn't the same anymore. We used to play, ride bikes, get tan as berries (as my mom used to say), and swim, swim, swim. Pools and beaches and camping out in the backyard. <g>

Now it's all about playing Wii or DS and using that word, BORED, from morning until night. I guess they might as well go back to school. They'll never know the joy of the summers that I had. What a shame.
