Too Hot for School?Posted Tuesday, August 28, 2012, at 9:23 AM
I think when my kids get home EARLY from school today, I'll have them mow the lawn. They'll be outside anyway. That's the first place they go when there's an early out for heat.
And really it doesn't affect me much either way since my job is at home but for parents that work, it must be a huge inconvenience.
My generation and most likely those before me, never got out early because it was too hot. We usually did afternoon classes outside in the breeze and we turned on fans and drank lots of water. Then we went to football/volleyball practice and then home to do chores. I've heard all the arguments for the early out but really none of them are legitimate. I am sure that somewhere in a third world country or a war torn country, children and teachers are wishing they could attend school all day...heat or not.

My name is Leah Cauthron. I was born and raised on a farm near Cushing, Iowa. My parents still live there. I am a conservative Catholic. I have been married to Randy for 22 years and we have six children. I received my degree in Criminal Justice from Eastern Wyoming College and as a mother of six and a daycare mom, I have used probable cause, reasonable doubt, search and seizure, Miranda rights, submission, arrest and interrogation technique as a part of my daily life. I can also shoot a .357 magnum with deadly accuracy. I have lots of opinions on lots of things. I am not an expert on anything but I read a lot and will gladly share that information if I find it accurate. I have a sarcastic nature and for the most part I have pretty thick skin and most things don't bother me for long. I don't like mudslinging or name calling so keep negativity of the personal nature to yourself. Enjoy and welcome to my opinion.
