Today in Pennsylvania, we’re celebrating another holiday! It’s opening day of deer hunting season. Every year, the Monday after Thanksgiving, kids stay home from school so parents, teachers, bus drivers, and yeah — kids themselves! — can go shoot Bambi.
I’m from Massachusetts, where opening day of deer hunting is NOT a state holiday! So Kbug’s doing school.
Plus, we have no hunters in the family. Plus, we took the entire week off from school last week, since Dee had off work the entire week. I love homeschool flexibility!
My father-in-law, a public school teacher, said he heard of a test paper that went something like this:
Question: “What are the four seasons?”
Answer by student: “Deer season, turkey season, duck season, bear season.”
Haha! We like to tell jokes about West Virginians, but that could’ve been a neighbor kid right down the road…
