    I've decided kids need school.

    For reasons other than to learn. Emma was home sick yesterday. She really wanted to go to school, but her nose was all goopy, and she had a horrible cough. So I thought I'd be a nice mom and give her the day off. Well, has anyone seen my ear? Because I'm pretty sure she talked it right off. I think she gets this from Grandpa. Wow, that girl can talk. I've decided kids need to go to school to get away from home, as well as to learn. I don't know what I'd do with her home all day everyday. Don't get me wrong, she's super cute, and Maggie loved having her here for the day, but I think she's better off at school. Hopefully she doesn't talk like that at school. We'd be in trouble.

    I agree. Aaron and Aimee had the whole week off last week for Thanksgiving, and while they kept Alex busy (and let me sleep) there is something to be said for those hours away from mom! For mom's sanity as much as their own.

    I agree completely. As much as I hate getting up and getting the kids to school in the mornings, I am glad for the alone time. And my kids need to see other people rather than just me. Summer's are hard for us. THere is no routine or any real schedule. School is better that way. But that said, I am really looking forward to Christmas break. I wish we had year round school so we could get better timed breaks.

    Emma goes to traditional school, so we get the crazy schedule here, too. I wish we could go on year round, but our school just doesn't have enough kids in it to justify it. We're lucky it hasn't been shut down yet.

    I'm glad that Aaron and Aimee are on traditional, that way they are usually out the same times as Mike. Year round would be nice in some ways, but I think it would definitely ruin our vacation schedule.
