August? Already?

I start crying after July 4, but due to traveling most of July I held back the tears.

It's already August. Where oh where did our summer go? I'd love to find it again. I am just not ready. I find it harder and harder to get motivated for the new school year. It is hard to even believe that some school districts have begun. WOW!!!

I return to work on August 14, and the students enter the hallowed halls on August 17.

Good luck to all teachers who are starting a new school year.

August, y'all!


  1. Thanks for the early morning laugh!...and that Someecard is perfect! Sorry you have to start dealing with school already. You need to move to NJ...Our kids don't go back until after Labor Day! Enjoy every last moment of your summer!

  2. Good morning, Ron! Oh, I so remember those summers when July 4 came around, and I would go into a funk because I knew that school would be starting soon. We always began at the beginning of August, and I totally agree with you that it gets harder and harder to get motivated to go back as the years go by, especially with the awesome summer that you have had. Love the Someecard--it sums up perfectly what every teacher feels about August! Have a great day! xoxo

  3. Ron, You sound like me...and I am retired...but I love the summertime and long to stretch it out forever. I tell you, if my siblings and I had to return to school before Labor would be hearing us cry all the way to your house. I hope all of you are doing well . Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. I go back tomorrow and our kids start next Wednesday--so soon! And I'm still feeling very unprepared haha!

  5. :( Sorry your beautiful summer vacay is almost over and it will be back into school again. When I was working as a school nurse I remember how sad I was when August rolled around and we had to prepare for another school year. Summer goes way too fast. Enjoy these last few weeks.

  6. Yup, Cobb back this week the rest next week. CRAZY!!! Even though I know longer have kids in school I still feel our schedule revolves around the school year. Boo...

  7. My daughter is already back to school and the kids start next week! Too soon!!

  8. One long Sunday night. That's too funny. We have some schools here in our county that are year round, already back in session. The rest go back the week of the 14th (teachers the week before). I sense you nearing a crossroads....go for it!
