Hard to believe, but summer is almost over. Not the ridiculously hot weather (100+, really?!), that will probably last another month or so (ugh). But school is about to start back next week.
Bitty is really getting excited about Kindergarten. Of course we’ve been talking it up :). And practicing with our Kindergarten workbooks. And if we forget, this is the only kid I know who actually ASKS for homework, lol.
Cuddlebug and Bearhug are not so excited, they have gotten used to their summer routine of staying up late and sleeping in. We’ve been having them go to bed earlier for a week now, and this week we’ll start actually getting them up earlier too (because they’ve been staying awake even after they go to bed so they’re still sleeping in).
On the upside, at least now that Bitty will be at the same school, they don’t have to worry about getting up early to drop him off at a different school anymore ;). Dh is excited about being able to drop off / pick up all at once for the next two years.
Bearhug and Cuddlebug will be in the same class for the first time this year. Hopefully that will work out well. I’m looking forward to them having the same homework on the same nights, and the same tests on the same days :). No more going crazy trying to keep it all straight as to who is supposed to study for what and when, and no more ornery boys about one having homework when the other doesn’t. Honestly that wouldn’t have been as big a deal if it went back and forth, but last year at least it seemed to consistently be one of them who had way more homework than the other and we heard about it all year.
Class lists were posted on Friday, turns out Bitty has the same Kindergarten teacher that Bearhug had. She was nice, and very structured, so I think Bitty will like her and do well in her class. He’s already learned her name and is looking forward to meeting her at open house on Thursday. We’ve already met his resource teacher, he is very nice and enthusiastic about working with the kids.
I’m not familiar with Cuddlebug and Bearhug’s new teacher, but I talked to another mom with a daughter in the ASD program (who will be in the same class) and she was excited about the teacher as she’s heard really good things about her. So I’m feeling pretty good about that and looking forward to meeting her on Thursday. We’ve already met their new resource teacher too and she is great.
I’ll let you know how it goes on Thursday.
