School is BYKE!

Yesterday, our oldest FINALLY went back to school. He was quite upset to realize that he is still in public school, but he went inside anyway. First Grade has a lot more cool stuff, e.g. computers in the classroom, SMARTboards, class store, etc. It’s awesome. He enjoyed his first day of first grade, and promptly fell asleep at 6:30 p.m. – Mom isn’t complaining.

A few weeks ago, I picked up several grade level workbooks to get him ahead, as we prepare to apply to private school. We’ve got some gems from Spectrum, Kumon, and the O.G. – BRAIN QUEST! – so I’ll update on the effectiveness, if any.

A small part of me is sad that I lost my running buddy, but OMG I have my house back! Who’s ready to finish painting? Me! Room updates coming soon!
