Back to School

New town.

Does anyone feel like school keeps starting earlier and earlier?!
Where we are now there are three school options: public, private, and charter.
The public schools start on the 20th of August.
Depending on the school, the rest start on the 13th or even the 8th...or was it the 9th?

Either way...holy moley!!
Give me a break. I don't think I like it. I'm sure there are reasons... but I think they cater to administration and--like someone else suggested--standardized testing.

I guess I'll be off school shopping soon. :P
Wish I knew what schools my kids would be going to...
:( transitions suck!
