Why?

~Why are my kids always bored? They are bored at school, they are bored at home.

~Why does everyday start with someone asking "where are we going today?" hoping that they will hear some place they like? Do we have to go somewhere everyday?

~ Why has this summer seemed extra "expensive"this year? No I am not talking about gas prices or food I am talking about entertaining my kids! Basketball camps, soccer camps, football sign ups, soccer sign ups, swimming lessons.

~Why does the laundy seem to pile up so fast even though I wash a couple loads almost everyday?

~Why does school start on August 20? Doesn't it make more sense to start after Labor Day?

~Why am I concerned about when school starts when we still have 1 1/2 months of summer left? Maybe it is because this summer has really flown by and I know it will be here before I know it or am ready for it.

~Why does my 11 year old now want to order off the adult menu because he is now "11." Is 11 the magic number?

~Why am I normally so good about watching what I eat but this week I could have cared less? Birthday cake on Sunday, leftover birthday cake on Monday, Buckeye Blitz ice cream on Tuesday, and Olive Garden tonight. Oh well tommorow is a new day and the cake and ice cream are gone and no I did not bring home any leftovers!

~Why does that ticker at the top of my blog seem to move ever so slowly? I feel like we have been at "waiting for 21 months" for 21 months!

I love it! I could've written this post myself. I wish I could answer the why's for you but unfortunately, I haven't found any of those answers yet!
If it makes you feel any better, we are in the deep south and the hottest month of the year is August....my boys start school August 5th! WHY??
Also, I know what you mean about your ticker...I think my ladybug has died or is on a serious vacation! ;)
Happy 4th of July, friend! Have a safe and happy weekend with your family!
