|FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL - 1965- that's me with a bun on my head. What was I thinking????|
Good Morning - I hope this finds you all well and ready to charge out into the world-
It's back to being HOT again. We had a couple of days where we were 89 and the lows were down in the 60's at night. It was heaven. But it's back to the mid to high 90's again and I am so tired of it. I'm thinking probably will have at least one more HIGH 100+ heatwave. I pray I am WRONG.
I always feel sorry for the kids, when they have to go back to school in this heat. When I was a kid, we went back AFTER Labor Day. That was back-to-school-week for us kids in the San Francisco area. I don't know about the rest of California. When my kids were young, it was the same thing - always the Tuesday or Wednesday after Labor Day.
I don't know when they changed it - and quite frankly I don't even know why. School ads, will say,
"when the kids go back to school in the Fall..."
BUT they don't. They go back in the summer. That's just cRaZy if you ask me. And summer break? It starts in Spring. In some cases, it's at least 6 weeks before summer. It's all Topsy-turvy.
