Today is a "local holiday" according to the school calendar. PA schools are closed for a reason that nobody seems to know. But, where are all the kids? I have one child at home with nothing to do and no one to do it with. All the usual friends can't be reached. The neighborhood is deserted. We have been to the park; full of preschoolers. We went shopping in Mountain View, got funny looks because we felt we should have been in school. Is everyone busy celebrating by having expensive day trips or even long weekends away. Is there a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang child catcher doing the rounds?
Anyone else have similar experiences?
