One of the most exciting days for a child during the year is the last day of school. The beginning of summer! No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks! Ahhh Summer! Freedom! No schedule! Sleep in! Play with friends! Can it get any better than this???
Well...that lasts about a week until boredom sets in and suddenly the kids are looking to Dad for entertainment. "I'm borrrred...there's nothing to do!" "Daaaaad...will you take me to the mall?" "Daaaaad...I can't find the TV remote!"
This is why one of the most exciting days for a parent is the FIRST day of school!!! The end of summer! Six solid hours of peace and quiet! Ahhh Back to School!!!
Have you ever wondered if school was actually created for the sole purpose of preserving the sanity of parents? I mean let's face it....my kids go to public school so they aren't actually learning that much. It's really no more than government sponsored child care. But after a long summer it's a welcome relief!!!
