Lauren and Dylan started school on August 14th. Lauren is in Kindergarten and has the same teacher that Dylan had, Mrs. Salmon. She is amazing and is helping Lauren come out of her shy world. So far, Lauren is liking school but is coming home tired. She is still working on how to express her feelings, and right now it is coming out in screams and attitude. Girls are great! She told me after the second day of school that she doesn't want to go every day. She's got a lot coming her way!
Dylan is in the high ability 2/3 class. He has Mrs. Scanlon and she is great. He will have a little more homework this year, but I'm hoping that he will enjoy the fast-paced learning from this class. He is doing a great job at watching out for Lauren and even walked her to class on the first day! Way to go big brother!
I am babysitting for two little boys before school and one comes here after school, too. Kameryn is in 1st grade and Zach is in Kindergarten. It gets a little rowdy around here sometimes, but so far we have made it on the bus on time. Ethan really likes watching the big kids get on the bus every day.
Such a big girl!
Ethan and I have been enjoying some time together as the older 2 are at school. He sometimes doesn't know what to do, but we are adjusting and trying to keep busy. We are hoping to make it to story-time at the library every week and he will be starting a joy-school program with some friends soon. He also gets to have playdates with Jack every week. It has been so nice for him, as he really missed having Jack here all the time! I have been getting some small projects done around the house, and that always feels good.
