Today is the first day of the girls summer vacation/holiday. They get seven weeks off until school starts again in September.
This is one of those little things that are just a bit off in my universe and need adjustment. It’s late July and my kids were still in school until last Friday. Growing up for me school ended in June. The girls spent the Fourth of July at school. My memories of the Fourth of July is visions of watching fireworks at camp when i was old enough to goto sleep away canp or when i was working at one.
There’s arguments to be made for either system. I do not feel one is better or worse than the other. It’s just different enough that it takes getting use to. So here I am on 23rd of July and it’s the first day of my girls summer vacation.
