*~*Manic Monday*~*

Funny quotes for some back to school fun…

“If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.” ~Edgar W. Howe

“Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to school the next day. It would have been called Independence Day, but that name was already taken.” ~Bill Dodds

...Today is back to school for the entire Scottsdale district. This may be a relief for some and a rush for others! I cannot believe how early some of the schools are starting this year, I mean especially when the weather is still triple digits, and the children are outside playing! That’s crazy and not like it use to be, when Labor Day weekend marked the beginning of the school year. Back to work for the teachers as well. I’m sure the novelty of vacation has worn off by now. I assume that it was enough sleeping in for the summer.
