We're 2/3 of the way through July. The fact that back-to-school advertising is already appearing everywhere that department stores can plaster it (I've seen it here too...and a lot of kids in MA only got out late in June due to all the snow in February) is basically just taunting kids at this point. It's like we're eager to tell kids that their time to just be kids is almost up, even though a depressingly large number of those kids have probably been enrolled in so many other activities and over-scheduled for summer that they barely have time to just be a kid and use their own creativity and imagination. Not there is anything wrong with enrolling kids in soccer or baseball or whatever, but in the last few years it seems that balance has flown out the window on a falcon wearing a rocket-propelled jetpack.
I start back at grad school whenever the paperwork is done for getting my thesis approved.
