Sky Watch Friday

Aloha Friday - Summer

Hello!  I'm participating in Aloha Friday, where I ask a simple question for you to answer and Two Question Thursday (same idea...only TWO questions). 

The entire summer here in Texas has been in the triple digits (just about).  If I were in charge of schools, summer for schools in Texas would be from the 2nd week of April through the first week of July (to include independence day). That would give us more time to enjoy the cool months, and still have a little summer overlap with other states.

So here's my questions...

  1. How's the weather been this summer where you are?
  2. If you could choose when summer vacation would be (any time...wouldn't even have to be 3 months in a row...could be a month here and there), would you change the dates of summer?

You can post your answers in a comment below.  :-)

Ten on Tuesday

10 things to do before school starts...
  1. Get kids into the doctors for immunizations.
  2. Shop for school supplies.
  3. Shop for school clothes.
  4. Shop end of summer sales on bathing suits, pool toys, etc. for next year.
  5. Have the kids clean off their desk to a point where they can actually do homework on it.
  6. Start getting kids to bed earlier to prepare them for early school wake-up times.
  7. Start planning my winter garden.
  8. Keep my summer garden alive through August.
  9. Make up pesto to freeze with all that fresh basil I have growing out there.
  10. Enjoy what's left of summer!
