School Progress Reports Already!

I cannot believe it has been 6 weeks since school started, but the kids brought home their progress reports today in their backpacks! Wow – time has flown! And the funny thing is, a whole lot of kids on the East Coast and back home in New York have only started school this week!

We never went back to school until after Labor Day – and I like that long summer break. But the people running the schools here are pushing us slowly into a year round calendar. I don’t like that and have written letters and emails to the school board, but they ignore me and are pushing slowly forward. Pretty soon the kids won’t have any summer vacation except for a 2 week break. That SUCKS! I like having my kids home over the summer. Honestly thinking about moving back to New York – I am so sick of living in a redneck state!!!
