We are on the tail end of summer. Warren starts school August 18th. First grade. Elaine starts preschool right after Labor day. It's time to get them back into the swing of school. It's time to get to reading, and working on the summer worksheets they provided us. It's time to get them to bed at a normal time and hope they wake up at a normal time.
It's time to do all those things.
But I don't want to.
It seems like school just ended. And I think it did - June 2nd or 3rd or something. Isn't summer about being a kid? Letting loose? Playing until the sun sets and then playing some more? Going to bed reeking of sunscreen, bug spray and sweat?
I know the break makes it hard for teachers when they start back up, and I want to help that. But still. I want my kids to be kids.
Of course they are to the point of fighting a lot. Maybe it's time to get ready for school.
I'm so fickle.
