1st Day of 1st Grade!!

Holy cow, a whole summer has passed and now it’s time to start 1st grade already!! So we packed our backpacks, planned our lunch, chose our outfit last night, washed and braided the hair and attempted to get in bed on time. The Child has been having trouble sleeping in her own bed all summer, so we tried a nifty little incentive plan, which is: if she can sleep in her own bed, all night long for 4 of 5 nights a week for a month, then she can earn a trip to Chuck E Cheese. So her response to this plan was “how ’bout vegas?”

Dude. go big or go home, I guess.


How Do You Like Kindergarten?

It’s been a little while since I had anything to post about Kindergarten. Well, I still don’t have anything really, considering Kindergarten is only from 8:30-11:15. I just don’t know how anything gets accomplished in those short hours, but those teachers are just amazing at what they do.

There have been birthday parties and sleepovers. Class parties and field trips. Did I mention the homework? In Kindergarten? There’s homework every single night. And it’s always a battle at our house. the Child has a serious case of the “I can’ts” and it drives me crazy, especially because she can but just doesn’t want to. Big difference, ya know?

Last day of school is coming up soon! June 11th or something like that.
