Two brothers abandoned by mom for the summer.

The movie starts off with the older brother (around middle school age i think) he gets in trouble a lot and on the last day of school a teacher or the principal assigns him to write about his summer. Then he and his little brother (probably like 10 or something) go home to find out that their mom has left. She's left before and does drugs a lot. I think the rest of the movie is them just trying to get by each day. At one point the older brother goes to a birthday party and steals the all the money from the birthday girl.
