August in Oklahoma is stinking HOT, people.
Going back to school in 100+ means our kids cannot even go out to recess for 15 minutes. However, they can practice football for a few hours. The boys picked up on this right away, don't kid yourselves. They're no dummies. Like I said this is Oklahoma, and in August
