Back to School Night
Back to School Night was tonight, and fortunately, the kindergarten session was at a different time and the third grade session.
Buster's teacher was lovely and reassuring to the first time parents, and we're happy to be in her classroom again. She mentioned with a smile that Buster is so serious in class. We know that look and occasional baleful stare, but he's comfortable and has some little friends. One of Q-ster's friends' younger brother is now his bud, which will be great for playdates.
We really like Q-ster's teacher too. Third grade is the start of much more analysis in reading, so that will be interesting. In his "what I did over the summer" paper above, he mentions that he went to Disneyworld, where he enjoyed rides and eating junk food. (Each child was writing on a template of giant sunglasses, in case you can't tell.)
We're going to be helping with a lot of homework this year, on top of piano practice. At least I should theoretically be getting more sleep at night with the new job, so I should have more energy to tackle it, right? Right?
In case you're a fan of minions, I made an update to yesterday's post. Too good to miss - a minion hotel!
