  • No and I'm freaking. Even when I was in school I was insistent on getting the basics a month ahead. I haven't gotten any thing yet for dd.

  • My children are out of school, and my grandchildren are home schooled. School started where I live on Tues. Yesterday it was 103 degrees here. Our school busses are not air-conditioned and some children have to be on them for an hour or more. I think it is silly to start school this early. It used to be that school started after Labor Day and was always out by Memorial Day. Now they are starting earlier and getting out later, and the children seem to be learning less. What's wrong with this picture???

  • I am not ready as that means I have to go back to work then since I work for the schools. My dd is optional and they started on July 22nd and she wasn't ready but here we go.
