Remember those days when summer was just starting and you had that list a mile long of things you wanted to do, places to go and books to read (not the ones on that silly summer reading list either) suddenly your mom has you buying school shoes in the dead of heat - Wait, BOOTS in July..that can't be right, oh no school is starting...You would run like a maniac for the last few weeks of summer, staying up as late as you could, pushing every button you could to get your mom to let you have one more ice cream at 10 o'clock in the morning...God knows once school starts, THAT will never happen again.
Now it is time for back to school shopping, sweaters and boots...oh my! There was a commercial that used to run around this time of the year...picture a mom pushing a shopping cart, humming the popular christmas song 'It's the most wonderful time of the year" throwing back to school items into her shopping cart. Christmas in August! I guess that goes right along with my kids thinking July was January...at least we know where they get their confusion from, right? Seriously though, we will miss our kids, but then again it is nice to have a few hours to ourselves during daylight hours.
