Welcome to the Old School Giveaway Hop, hosted by Mama the Fox!
Is it just my imagination, or does it seem like school starts earlier and earlier every year?
When I went to school – admittedly back in the dark ages – we started right after Labor Day. And that still seems right in my head. After all, Labor Day is when summer is unofficially over, and nothing says summer being over – at least to a kid – as much as going back to school. Of course, this was back in the dark ages, I grew up in Cincinnati, which has all four seasons with a bit of a vengeance, so summers were hot and muggy and schools weren’t air conditioned yet.
The schools here in the Atlanta metro area have mostly already started. Gwinnett County, where I live, started on August 4, which just seemed unconscionably early, even to some of my friend who have kids in school.
At least the schools are air conditioned!
What about where you live? When did everyone go back? Did it feel early, late or just right? Answer in the rafflecopter for a chance at the winner’s choice of a $10 Amazon Gift Card or $10 in books.
