First Day of School

Last week was back to school for the kids, and back to work for me. L started 3rd grade, and A moved up to 1st.
L comes home excited every day about fun things they are doing in class- they each got a water bottle that they fill up first thing in the morning, and the teacher does brilliant and yucky points as rewards and demerits. A isn't having such a great time. This morning he really didn't want to go to school, even after working on some things with the teacher on Friday. He's struggling with writing, and "his brain hurts." Hopefully it will get better, though. The Asst. Principal says it's pretty normal in first grade to have some early days struggles. This teacher helped a friend of L's through a difficult beginning, so hopefully she'll do the same for A.
Here's me in all my belly glory on my way to report week (for real, this time.)
