The summer was way too short! School started today, and my oldest children headed back to class this morning.
Angel Baby headed to third grade. After a rough school year last year, I was excited to see that she had a teacher that had actually requested her. Last year's teacher acted like she didn't even like her, and this year she has a teacher that likes her so much that she actually worked things out to make sure she was in her class. I know she will have a better year this year.
I was concerned about Monster Man's year. Angel Baby's teacher from last year had moved to first grade this year, and I was terrified he would end up in her class. Instead, he ended up in the class of her first grade teacher, which makes me feel a lot better. At least I know what to expect from her.
All in all, I think this year will be much better than last year. I am already anxious to hear how their first day went, as I know this will be a sign of how the rest of the year will be.
