If you follow us on social media, you will know that the kids, except Kinley, started school on Tuesday. So far, so good. I would say the biggest challenge is getting ourselves back into the school bedtime schedule. Summer was great. We stayed up late. We slept in lots. Now, school reality has set in.
Cale and Marcus left first. Cale is in 7th grade and is taking honors English, honors math and honors band-French horn. Marcus is a freshman and his classes include AP World History, Spanish, Biology and band-trombone.
The second round of schoolers included Kella (1st grade, Mrs. Sears), Ewan (5th grade, Mr. St. Amand) and Liam (3rd grade, Mrs. Lodge). They were ready to go and had all met their teachers the night before. Ewan actually had his teacher back in 3rd grade for some of his classes. Kella's teacher is new to the district and somehow, Liam's teacher has never had a Shaffer in her class and Liam is the 4 kids to go through the elementary school. How is that even possible?
Good news, everyone had a great day. They loved their teachers and were happy to go back to school the next day. The trend is holding and routine is getting easier to slip back into.
Here's to a great year!
