I've taken today off work to study for the Comps on Saturday. I took Tuesday of last week off work, too. I've made tons of progress and feel ok about the test.
During these days, I've gone for walks, done laundry, watered plants, worked in the kitchen, etc. I absolutely love sitting at my dining room table with the window cracked open and the blinds all through the house letting sunlight stream through.
While enjoying these days at home, I've decided something.
It would really be better for children to have two months off school when they can be outside enjoying beautiful weather. It's not scorching hot. It's not dry and blistering. It's absolutely beautiful, with crisp cool air and even a breeze sometimes!
I know this may not be the case across the nation, but I think we should go to school in June, July and August and instead be off in September, October and November...but that's just me.
