Unusually quiet. That would explain my daughter this morning. Usually, she's a rambunctious, smarty pants, wiggly little girl. This morning, I chalked it up to being tired, because they had to get up much earlier than they did all summer.
Because it's the first day of school here. My baby is in SECOND grade. Turns out, she was nervous because she is in the Second/Third split class. And she was scared because there are third graders in there. One of whom has the same birthday as her, one year earlier!
The district lost another teacher position this year, and "based on demographics, we used a scientific method to determine which class would benefit the most out of this split grade level." And it was the second and third grade. So, while other grade levels have three teachers each, the second grade has two, the third grade has two and there is one Second/Third grade class.
After seven seconds in her classroom though, she was fine. She's flanked by two of her previous classmates.
The twins are in Middle School this year, and their school doesn't begin until next week. So they have a week still to prepare themselves!
And Koy, he's a freshman in high school. You could probably use Kaisa's quote as mine as well. I can't get all motherly and clingy but HIGH SCHOOL!? I won't say I feel old, cause I don't really. But I feel something unexplainable. High school. Sigh...
