As the honking of the horn of a yellow school bus symbolizes the beginning of yet another school year, the pressure that accompanies the new year rises even higher. The lazy days of summer end abruptly and give way to early wakeups, before school meetings, after school activities, and homework, homework, and more homework! Fall is a season jam-packed with must-dos and the annual fall break can not come about soon enough—especially when you plan a Branson vacation!
