Trying out some pencils...
For a parent of a newly minted 7th grader, this is the week when everything changes back to "normal". Yes, just a few months ago we blasted the house with the infamous Alice Cooper song "School's Out
". We left for a vacation, made outdoor fires, road our bicycles, swam in the pool, had sleep overs and played video games past midnight. While summer breaks seam to go on forever life takes a more chaotic turn, it's a challenge to provide an eventful, relaxed summer for a pre-teenager. With labor day a distant memory we parents are wearing a smile at our sleeves and secretly highfiving our spouse. You can find us still humming that Alice Cooper song, duh with slightly altered lyrics: "SCHOOL'S BACK FROM SUMMER, SCHOOL'S BACK IN SESSION"
Now come on just sing along.
