Waiting (Not Patiently) for the Last School Bell

So all of a sudden it's like 90 degrees in New York City and my kids have two confirmed cases of Summer-itis. All anyone wants to do is go swimming, wait for the ice cream truck to show up and hang out with friends, playing Manhunt or drawing all over the concrete with chalk. NO ONE wants to do homework. Yet we still have three and a half weeks of school to go. As a mom, I have zero drive to try to get my son to do math problems or writing exercises at night. After all the stress of standardized test prep and nine months of hassling over homework assignments, I just feel like school should be over now. Who's with me??
