SUMMER unofficially comes to a close Monday, when children begin trundling back to school. It seems as though I've paid closer attention to the opening of school this year than I have before.My reason is purely selfish. If we get through this year, I'm done. By my count, I will have graduated from high school three times -- once on my own, twice with my kids.Mother Hen will be out of chicks after this year. No more shopping for back-to-school anythings. I do not include packing a kid off to college in that shopping category.
