The boys started first and third grade. Josh is in his final year of the multi-age program. Gavin starts traditional first grade. They had a great first day!
Gavin said he's enjoying lunch and specials (art, music and PE). It's a struggle to get him up in the morning. The boy is a sleeper. He has melt down moments at the end of the day. I'm hoping he'll adjust soon.
Josh is the oldest in the multi-age program, so he's big man on campus. He came home with his first textbook that needed to be covered. I don't think I've covered a textbook in 20+ years! They have new sleeve-like covers that he requested. A simple paper bag just isn't cool enough......even if you can draw all over it. My how times have changed.
I also need to make the statement that they are both in school all day. All day! Gone from 7:30-2:35. No more half day anything. If that isn’t something to rejoice about, I don’t know what is! Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids, but being with them all day long takes a toll after 10 weeks of monotonous summer days. I'm working three days a week to keep myself busy, but those two days I have all to myself to run errands, do chores or just sit on the couch to watch a movie are so nice.
We're back to daily routines - my happy place!
