First day of school for the kids. They both go to Center Street Elementary, which is one of two elementary schools in town. Took me a bit to get back into the swing of things, as far as making them breakfast, packing their lunch, fixing a snack, hustling them off to school.
Stephanie is starting fifth grade and Morgan second grade. Stephanie didn’t want me to walk her to her class; said it would be too “embarrassing” to be walked to class by a parent. Hoo boy, aren’t we all grown up, now. It worked out because when I drove them to school, there was no parking to be found close by, so I just dropped them off at the rear of the school and they each found their way to their classrooms.
New school schedule this year: each and every Monday is a minimum day, meaning students get out at 1:30 instead of 2:45. That’s going to be tougher for families where both parents work.
