School Days Almost Over

When I was a kid, we had to go to school until the third week of June. When we got home on that last day of school, we usually found my mom’s car loaded with suitcases and bags of gear to take on our vacation. We got home, changed into play clothes, and drove off that very night for the cabin. Our Dad always told us that he helped Daniel Boone build that cabin, not sure how he convinced us of that considering all of the new modern luxuries were quite evident. I mean heck we even had Indianapolis Water Softeners put in a system to help make the water taste better since our Mom insisted that we drink water and not soda pop all summer long.

Funny how our own world view can be so limited to our own experiences. I had no idea that kids in other parts of the country we getting out of school before Memorial Day! I am so jealous of those kids!

To me, the very best part of summer is when it is not so unbearably hot during the day, which means June and July. By the time it gets to August, it is miserably hot and humid. I’d much rather be back in an air conditioned school room in August than stuck at home and be told by my mom to go outside and play in 100+ degrees heat. Ugh!
