Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Dreaded 3 words uttered and seen: Back to School

Before the 4th of July, I went in search of my son's favorite blue jean shorts. Where were they? I asked. That is when the store clerk uttered those most feared words in the English language....We're clearing those out because we are getting ready for "back to school" sales.  

Of course, those same 3 words sometimes bring delight to a mother's heart--especially if the kids are being whiny and demanding.  

I don't like those 3 words because they remind me that summer will too soon be over. Back when I was in control of my school schedule, I never started homeschool until the first week of fall.
