My little buggers are enjoying their first week of the school year. Hearing them talk about what they are learning and going to learn is exciting for all us. Dinner time is full of conversation now.
I enjoyed the 1st day way too much I think because 3pm came very quick and I almost forgot to get them. I was about 10 minutes late. Last year school ended at 3:15 and this year it’s 3pm so I blame it on the time change, not that I was enjoying the quiet so much. The past 3 days have been very nice! I get up early and do the housework while I’m juiced up on coffee then I have the day to do work online and other projects.
My Lil Mama is in a split 1st/2nd grade class and at first I was WTF….no that’s not going to work. She is way too smart to do 1st grade over again. She was top of her class in 1st grade and I just don’t want her to be bored. Lil Mama and boredom doesn’t mix at all! Her teacher and principal reassured me that it will be fine and she will be challenged. Okay, I hope so!
Lil Man well he feels all grown now…4th grade and all! He asked the teacher if he could sit up in front because he wants to LEARN a lot this year. Let’s see how long that will last. Lil Man is also in a split 4th/5 class but with 2 teachers. I wasn’t as worried because I want him to learn UP. I know double standard. LOL! He is very excited to have 2 teachers and new school subjects. He said today..it feels like I’m in Middle School- not sure I how he knows how that feels but I’ll give it to him.
So Cheers to 2011-2012 School Year!
