Iowans’ Favorite Part of Back-to-School Time
Summer is almost over and school is about to start. Back-to-school shopping has been underway for some time. The kids may dread it, but it's a much-needed reprieve for many parents.
We asked you to tell us: what is your favorite part of back-to-school time?
These first two mince no words! Ouch!
Mike Kibler: I'm a selfish old duffer, I freely admit it, but I secretly enjoy hearing the whining that they (my kids) have to actually get up and function before noon. I'm typically up and out the door by 5:30 am, so, yeah I get kinda jealous of their long lazy summer break.
Mary Johnson: All the brats get out of the street.
Others aren't so harsh:
Marcy Jo DeLarm: Getting the school supplies and we look forward to Homecoming!
Alana Bilyeu: Hearing how excited he is about a new teacher and new friends
Katie Corlett: I work at a daycare, so the clearance supplies
Chris Truesdell: Kids going back to school, quiet in the house
MaKenzie Wieseler: The neighborhood kids aren't playing in the street during the day.
Peggy Henderson: Kids start learning again.
Other responses had little to do with the school:
Brianne Ulrich Football!!!
So what do you think? Here's hoping the kids have a great school year, whatever part of it they (or you) may be most looking forward to!
