Love/Hate August

If you're anything like me you both love & hate August. I love August because it is still technically summer. I hate it because everyone tries to cram into it EVERYTHING they have not managed to do so far in summer! Of course, the other reason used to be because school starts, which I admit is not bothering me much at all now that I am a retired teacher.

Same here. It’s still summer, but school is in sight. I don’t mind the setting up and meetings when we get back too much, but I hate the first week with the kids. Getting used to a schedule again, teaching new routines, making connection between new kids & their parents at dismissal, etc. - I find it stressful. By the second week, I’m back into it. And then the first semester seems to fly by with all the holiday breaks.

DISLIKES:

It's still way too hot here in Southern CA...mostly triple digits this week and beyond.

The first couple weeks, the stores/malls are crowded because everyone's taking the kids shopping for back-to-school.

******************************* **********

Last year during fall/winter, there was not even ONE day that was cold enough to wear a sweater. I'm hoping it will be different THIS year!

Love the excitement of a new start

Hate the heat

Hate the wrangling part of new kindergarten kids and parents

August is just too hot in central Texas so that is a reason it is my least favorite month.

Both my parents and my niece were born in August so that is a good thing about this month.

The saying that August is like one long Sunday is true...
