Even as a child, I thought summer break was way too long. Three months? Really?
Of course, I was excited for school to end and summer break to begin, but by July, both my mom and I were running out of fun things to do. By August, I was just plain bored and missed my friends. And I dare say, routine. Looking back, I think I was just as excited for the first day of school as I was for the last.
Now that I'm an adult, and parent, I think a three month summer break from school is even more ridiculous. Three months is just too long for a child to spend in and out of summer camps, watching TV and being begged and pleaded with by a parent to,"Put down the video game controller and go play outside!"
Being that summer break is widely accepted as being much too long, a few school districts around the country have transitioned from a long summer break to year-round schools, with short breaks spaced throughout the year. Honestly, I'm not sure why all schools don't make that year-round school year transition. I know I would vote for that.
I LOVE THIS SO SO SO MUCH!
