Some of the schools around us do that.  They technically call them "all year" schools, but they still get 2 months off in the summer.  I wish we would go to that, but as my baby is a 10th grader this year...I doubt we will see it while it affects us.

I have to say I think it's ridiculous starting so early right in the midst of summer.  Starting in August was hard for us to get used to when we moved here - had always been the day after labor day in OR.  Here in S. TX, the kids can't start before the last full week in August, so I believe they'll start on the 21st - a little earlier than usual the way the weeks line up.  

My kids are in college and I believe they start classes Aug. 22nd, depending on what day their first class starts.

My son starts on the 24th and my step-daughter is cyber schooled and she starts on the 9th of Sept. I feel like it comes quicker each year

My nephew started school this past Monday (August 7) - they get out the middle of May, provided that they don't use more than the allotted inclement weather days that are built in.

Some of our grandkids are starting the 16th and some on the 17th. It's been such a crazy, busy Summer and lots of fun with the grandkids. But, I'm ready to get back to my normal daily routine.

I start Monday and kids come Wednesday.  It is the middle of August and too stinkin' early!  I swear we keep inching it sooner and sooner, and we get out the end of the third week of May.  It is stupid because it isn't hot in May in Ohio and the end of August is boiling, usually!

The 28th.   I say two more weeks of litter all over the lawns and the return of school buses to drive behind.  AND, speaking of school buses, when I saw the bus, I'd run to get to it, these kids today act like they are entitled to take their time, hold up traffic longer, etc..... I could go out and smash them and their phones.  Image

we are pretty close in the path of the eclipse- I'm in the "boot heel" of Missouri. our work is shutting down and bought the special glasses so we can all watch as it goes past. That is pretty cool!  Where are you guys going???


After weighing all our options we are going to the KC Zoo.  I will have 5 kids ranging in age from 2 to 6, so I wanted to avoid crowds for the most part.  The zoo expects some interesting behavior from the animals during the eclipse.  I actually live in Peculiar, about 30 miles south of KC.
