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

TIA Flo
// 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");

          }

          else          

          {

          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");

    }

    else

    {

    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!
