School starts back for my boys August 5. That’s way too early. We didn’t have enough Summer? Did you?
I know it’s different around the country, generally here we get out the third or fourth week in May and typically start back the first or second week in August. The kids get about eight weeks off. When I was in school, we got 12 weeks off! My boys are envious of that. That’s about the only thing they’re jealous of though, they can’t imagine life without the Wii, DS or Pokemon! Sometimes I tell them I didn’t have cable TV and cartoons only played on Saturday mornings just to really freak them out!
So, school starts back and all heck breaks loose! Ballgames, homework, projects, scouts, fundraising (bleck :p, fundraising! – I wish I had a dime for every dollar I fundraised for someone else!! I need to fundraise for myself!!) Ok, sorry, so I put together 25 Thirty Minutes Week Night Meals (and they’re not from Rachael Ray!) for your busy week nights. I hope this helps ease the transition back to school!
