A Reluctant Back-To-School Post
…and so it has come to this: Back-to-School. I will admit that I have always enjoyed having my kids home, having some quality non-structured time is certainly an important reason for this,
but also the break from the structure, the routine, dropping off, picking up, events etc. is a much welcomed relief!
I long for the days of a true Summer Break – like I had back in the day –
with the last day of school prior to Memorial Day and the first day
of school after Labor Day. That’s right, three full glorious months
Plenty of time to lie in the grass and watch clouds float by, bike ride all over the valley, to take fun summer school classes – yes, summer school – not Extended School Year (ESY). Such pleasant recollections of consuming copious amounts of slushy frozen carbonated beverages, cinnamon rolls from Winchell’s Donuts (the size of my bike tires); and rainbow sherbet from Thrifty’s, of reading endless comics and Nancy Drew books (yes, hard cover and paperback books – with paper pages), of going swimming, and to amusement parks, and road trips with the family, sigh.
I am aware that I am in the teeniest, tiniest minority on this!
So, as “Your Special Needs Resource Destination” we’re providing useful back-to-school resources for individuals of all abilities – even if a bit reluctantly!
Keeping The F.A.I.T.H!
