The Boys of Summer Have Gone

Written by dad - One Comment

Long time, no write… Our three oldest went back to school a week ago yesterday, and our youngest goes back to preschool on Monday. This year, he’ll be in for five days per week. That means that my lovely and talented wife gets some much needed downtime on weekday mornings.

On the topic of going back to school… When I was a kid, we always got out in early June and went back after Labor Day. Same deal in college. That schedule is now so engrained into my psyche that I have a really hard time adjusting to the idea that summer vacation starts in early May. By the time my mind and body accept the idea that it’s summer, there’s only two months left.

No matter, we had a great summer. Our three oldest had a great swim season early in the summer, and we also took a couple of nice trips. This includes a mid-summer week lakeside with family and a long end of summer weekend at the ocean.

The boys are now settling back into their school routine and we’re gearing up for fall soccer. While we coached three teams last fall and two in the spring, we’re scaling back to one this fall (though we might end up helping with a second).

  1. I agree with you there. I am still surprised when the summer starts in May and starts back again in August. Labor Day was when we started as kids also. I think I would prefer it that way 🙂
    There would still be 36 weeks of school, right?
