My Facebook feed has been flooded with first day of school pictures. Tis that time of year! Everyone is heading back to school, dressed in their first day best, holding a chalkboard marking the occasion and smiling for the camera...
Unless your kids go to my kids' school which does not start until September 8th!!! That's 8 more days (not that I'm counting). Eight long days with nothing planned and daily temperatures in the 90s.
So we're doing a bit of parks. A bit of pool. And a bit of Netflixing....
Specifically, this month the kids are into Dinotrux.
The subject characters are a combination between dinosaurs and mechanical vehicles. For two boys 4 and over WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE BETTER?
(Oh, maybe your own Dinotrux toy to play with. Thanks, Netflix!).
From what I can gather from my eavesdropping of the kids viewing, the plot is simple. Good guys versus bad guys, dinosaur best friends, and an evil Tyrannosaurus, among others. But at the end of the day, does it really matter? The boys love watching hybrid dinosaurs, and with 10 episodes of around 23 minutes each, I love the break.
Eight more days... Sigh.
