School is now in session
August 5th my two oldest go back to school. Whatever happened to starting after Labor Day? They used to say the three best things about being a teacher were June, July and August. Guess that's history. It doesn't take a math genius to figure out that since the summer is so short now, maybe be should just go to year 'round schooling. I know it would improve my mental health not to have to worry about what my kids are doing while I'm at work. Just because I assign them reading it doesn't mean they do it. And when I get home I'm to worn out to check. With the way the speak English I'm guessing they don't. My boys have two jobs: empty and load the dishwasher and take out the trash. Both hardly ever get done. The dishes in the sink look like someone's science project. So that's not much help. They do get some physical education though. Too bad it's playing basketball on the Wii. There, I named them all. Now the only people who get hurt by year 'round schooling would be the teachers. Sorry teachers. Yes, you too Sis. Suck it up and work 365 like the rest of us. I suppose summer daycares would take a hit too. But all in all I feel it's the way to go.
