My kids were righteously indignant when they discovered that this is a full week of school. The past three weeks of school have been riddled with teacher in-service days, early release days, and national holidays.
"What? Not even a half day this week?" Bear asked.
"Nope. You go all five days this week. But next week is Thanksgiving, and you only have two days of school," I told them.
Bug sighed and layed her head on the kitchen table, "Man, this sucks. I need a break."
Because it's so stressful being eight years old?
