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!
