I grew up in a state where school started after Labor Day weekend, which was PERFECT. September. Starting to cool off.
NOW I live in a place where for some reason the new school year starts in the middle of August. I think that's ridiculous. It's still HOT outside, it's still SUMMER. I feel like my children are getting screwed out of 20% of what is technically "summer". When does the school year start where YOU live, and how do you feel about that?
