The end of summer is a weird thing. I am fully ready to return to a normal schedule where we all go to bed at decent times and get up around 7am. The kids are ready for school again, they need to see their friends regularly and to stimulate brain cells. Heck, I want to see all of my mama school friends again.
That said, our family struggles with change and adapting to new situations. Vera has a great class and a male teacher for the first time! She was bummed that her best friend wasn't in her class and that has dominated the year so far. Give her a month and I think she will adjust and adapt. 4th grade brings a whole new set of rules...not just education, but social. She is navigating well, but I am nervous. This is the first year that she cares what she wears and wants a say in what clothes I buy.
Keller's situation is a first for us this year too. He is in a job share class. One teacher teaches Monday and Tuesday, another teaches Thursday and Friday. They teach every other Wednesday to share the week. I can't get much out of him...details are slow in coming. My plan is to talk with my friend whose talkative daughter is in his class. I know she is getting all of the good information.
Had to get at least one picture of the four together.
