Brooks keeps asking me how long he has to go to school. I told him until Christmas time, and then he gets a big break. It is quite an adjustment from doing your own thing all summer to switching to structure and routine, every Monday through Friday.
I figured it isn't a good thing to tell him that he will really be going to school for the next 19 years. That seems a little far out for a three year old to comprehend. Until then, we'll stick to the Christmas timeline.
