Anyone itching to start back to school yet?

    When I was in school, by the time the end of the year came around, everyone was SO excited to be done with school and ready for the summer fun to start. I would sleep in and play and life was good. Then I remember round about July, when I had slept in and played and done the vacation thing...and I actually started to want to go back to school. Why? The higher grade level was exciting. I missed my friends. And if I said I was bored to my parents one more time they were going to make me start cleaning out the attic, or something as equally hideous.

    We technically have a "year round" approach to school, but more often than not it works out that we get everything done and we generally take August off. Even though that's not a long time, the boys are usually excited to be able to say that they are in the next highest grade level. Also, our homeschool group takes a summer break, so they do miss some of their friends from group. While I wouldn't go so far to say that they are "jonesing" to start the school year, the new start isn't really met with a lot of negativity.

    What about your family? Are your kids already wanting the new school year to start? Are you??
