I can't believe the kids have to go back to school already. What happened to summer?

When my kids were younger, I absolutely hated this time of year. I was one of the few parents that dreaded them being gone all day.

Summer was our time to hike, have picnics, go hiking, fishing, swimming and sleep in whenever we could.

I love summer vacation. I don't love that Colorado starts school in the middle of August. When I was a kid, we used to start after Labor Day and get out around Memorial Day.

What happened to that schedule? Boo!

Many of you on Facebook said you are ready for school to start, but I must agree with one of our listeners that made the same point I've been making for years.

Michelle, I am so with you on all counts that you made.
