How many days in a month?

I have to write a script that will tell the user how many days are in a certain month in the year they have entered.  The exercise is using nested selection.  Where am I going wrong here?  It compiles ok but when I enter the year it doesn't ask me for the month, it just tells me there are 31 days

// Days in Month
import java.util.*;
public class DaysInMonth
  public static void main (String[]args)
    //create scanner from keyboard
    Scanner myKeyboard = new Scanner (System.in);
    //prompt for year
    System.out.print("Please enter the year ");
    int year = myKeyboard.nextInt();
    //prompt for month
    System.out.print("Please enter the month");
    String month = myKeyboard.nextLine();
    //Determine if it is a leap year
    boolean isLeapYear = (year % 4 == 0 && year % 100 != 0) || (year % 400 == 0);
    //calculate and return result
    if (month.equals("february"))
          if (isLeapYear = true)
          System.out.print("There are 29 days");
          System.out.print("There are 28 days");
    else if (month.equals("november"))
    System.out.print("There are 30 days");
    else if (month.equals("april"))
    System.out.print("There are 30 days");
    else if (month.equals("june"))
    System.out.print("There are 30 days");
    System.out.print("There are 31 days");

It's ok, I fixed it myself.  I got it to ask the month before the year and it worked.  YAY!
