Back 2 School

Does it still count even if it *was*, um, two weeks ago today??! Sheesh. Time flies especially when you're back to getting up at 6:15 so the kiddos can catch their bus at 7 am. Cripes - who in the world thought it was a good idea to have school start at 7:40, I ask you??

Anyhow. So two weeks in to first and third grades, I can safely say they are both really enjoying it and we are loving their teachers. We're finally settling into the routine. They're starting to get homework. We're trying not to have fights about it when they get home. Good times. If we've got any indication so far though, it seems like this year will be a fabulous one for them and I'm so excited to see it.

Sounds like they are settling in nicely. My kids started school on monday but had yesterday off for "the hurricane that wasn't" (see my blog for my opinion on that). Luckily our school isn't starting until 8:45 this year so we are having much calmer mornings. goos luck gettingused to the early mornings!

Hi Kelly! Love the boys in their shirts, cool! I am glad to hear they are enjoying their teachers so far. We start on the 3rd and don't find out who their teacher is until the day before. My son will be lucky with either choice but for my daughter I hope she gets the one teacher instead of the other. Now I guess it's time to think about the school routine thing again, darn, I have enjoyed the leisurely mornings and evenings!!
Hope the boys continue to enjoy their school days!

They look so cute, sorry handsome. Here in Michigan we can't start until after Labor day it has to do with tourism. Ofcourse mine aren't so cute anymore, one's in high school, the other in college. from your "Whitesburg" friend.
