We’ve taken a vote on something. And since there are only two of us and we both voted ‘yes’ that means that it’s unanimous and our voices MUST be heard.
What did we vote on, you ask?
Well, we have decided that each state should get to determine when their summer break will take place.
For example, in Oregon summer break should be July, August and September instead of June, July and August. Because June is the month where Oregon still can’t make up it’s mind whether it’s Spring or Summer but typically favors Spring even though everyone is seriously ready to hang up those rain coats. And in Arizona, their summer break could be when it isn’t so boiling hot outside that the kids can see the sun outside their window but can’t go out in it for fear of melting.
Who’s with us on this?? Should we start a petition? Anyone know where we would send it? 😉
Well, until our voices are heard from the powers that be, we’ll just have to deal with the reality of summer quickly coming to an end and make the best of it by throwing a party!

Whether your kids go back to school after Labor Day or they started back last week, technically it’s still summer people!
There may be school supplies on the shelves of the stores but we are going to relish these last few days with sunlight lasting long into the evening, gardens overflowing with their bounty and barefoot kiddos running through the grass.
How about you? When do your kids go back to school?
Are you going to sign our petition? 😉
