When Summer Vacation is More Summer Than Vacation

Every day my kids ask me about going to school.

The older one says "When do we get to go back to school?" and the little one just plaintively wails "Schhooolll. Schhoool. I wanna go to school!"

At Le Pain Quotidien on the way to Hippo Park Playground
And every day, I say cheerful as can be "In the summer, it's a vacation from school. We do fun stuff together, go to the playground, to the library, play with your friends...."

As soon as I'm done with my happy little speech, the kids just ask again about school. So, I offer up the big ticket items I have to offer over school - we can go to the zoo! Grandpa's beach-house! Out for ice-cream!  Out for breakfast and then spend the whole day at Hippo Park!

And still, they just want to go to school.

Which makes me have to wonder, is it really that bad hanging out with me?

And, more to the point, is it time I called their school and asked them if they have two spaces for the last three weeks of summer camp?
