This week, along with most everyone else, my kids went back to school. Although I teach my girls at home, we still can't get away from some of the old back-to-school habits that seem to be the norm. We bought a few new clothes and took first-day-of-school pictures. Then we broke out the books and got to work. I know that, offically, summer still has about a month left. However, there is something about kids going back to school that signals the end.
