Most schools now open just before Labor Day, so that means there's a good month and a half of vacation time left for the kids.
As a kid, I used to hate those first back to school ads. Now that school is in the rear view mirror, I like it. It signals cooler weather and quieter times just around the corner.
Is it too early for back to school sales? Probably, but remember it is a big time for retailers, so you know what happens when there's money to be made. Prepare for the blitz.
The advent of uniforms, even for public school kids, has taken a lot of fun out of the process. I was around long before uniforms, and I did my best to keep the process stress free-- a trip to the Jean King for a few pair of Levi's, a few shirts, a new pack of underwear, socks. Boom! Done.
Enjoy the rest of summer.
