|Doesn't he look so grown-up?|
The first week of school is upon us and so far, we are weathering it all right. Both boys have been pretty easy to rouse in the mornings, which is surprising because they've been used to sleeping in. They've both been cranky and tired in the evenings, so I think that is taking its toll. Micah said he had a great first day on Monday, and even brought home a prize from the "treasure box" for being "still and quiet", no small feat when you are 5 :-) Although his best bud is not in his class this year, he did spot him in another classroom and they "smiled." He will be in Prime Time afterschool care again this year so I am sure he will get to see some of the other kids there. Micah hasn't been eating much of his lunch at school, probably because he gets too distracted by the other kids, so we are hoping that resolves soon.
Jacob also has a new classroom and teacher due to a new preschool building opening up in town and all the 3-yrs-old-and-up kids being moved to that. He is now one of the oldest kids in his building and his new teacher is a friend from church, so that helped the transition. Yesterday he cried when I dropped him off, but today he happily went with Ms. Tanya to play, so that helps a mama's heart :-)
Dan's first day teaching was yesterday and he said that went well. He is teaching classes he's already taught so he didn't have as much prep work to do as in years past. He is not directing right now, but is advising a student director, so that also helps lighten the work load. I am undergoing lots of training for my new role at work this week. I anticipate that this will be a busy semester for all of us.
