We went over to their school yesterday to find their classroom, and luckily their teacher was there, so we were able to meet him, too. And, can I just add in here--I’m starting to feel old! I mean, I know I have 7 year-olds, but still…Sheesh! I’m pretty sure their teacher is younger than me, and by several years. I feel like I’m still fairly young. And, aren’t teachers supposed to be old?! Seriously! Ahem, moving on…
I am REALLY glad they are all in the same class this year. They were in three separate classes for the last two years, and it was such a pain in the b.u.t.t. It caused problems because they would have the same homework, but each teacher would want it done in a different way. Or, they’d have the same spelling list, but one teacher would have some of them be '”bonus” words, and the other teachers would not. Oy! I can’t keep up with that! (Ain’t nobody got time for that!)
I can’t believe I have kids in SECOND grade now. SECOND GRADE!! Seriously, where has the time flown to?! I hope and pray they do well at their new school and make good friends. They are really, really excited to start.
They’ve never ridden the bus to school before. In kindergarten they went to a charter school, so I drove them everyday. Last year we lived a mile from the school, so we either rode bikes to school (you can do that year-round in Arizona) or I drove them. They are really stoked to ride the bus!
The bus picks them up right outside our apartment building, which is nice. I was freaking out a little, though, because the bus was 30 minutes late and I was afraid we’d missed it, even though we were outside 10 minutes early!!
Good luck, crazy kids! Have a great first day!!
