Well, school is about to start back here next week so there are groans and grins alike in my household (the 7th grader doesn’t want to go back, the third grader does.)
We pretend in North Carolina that it’s fall when school reconvenes, even though it’s probably going to be at least 90 degrees all next week. My daughter will want to wear her cute new fall clothes, which are totally inappropriate for hot summer days. But…well, I’ll probably let her. Where’s the harm, after all?
It’ll be nice to have the taste of summer in their little lunchboxes, anyhow. And, thanks to the magic of blue ice, I’ll put some in a Tupperware.
