In the swing of school
Both of our kids attend a Montessori school and I love how this school places a large emphasis on kindness and respect to others, involvement in our community and using good manners. I feel as though the school reinforces what we try to teach at home.
Boo loves, loves, loves Kindergarten! Each day she when I pick her up from school she chatters excitedly about what she's done and who she's played with. It's never a chore to get her to go to school. She actually asks on the weekends when she gets to go back.
Snuggle Bug is adjusting to 2nd grade. He likes his teachers and they're easing him into the school work and homework so it's not too difficult yet. I'm trying not to pass on my procrastinating tendencies to my children, so I've established a routine of sitting down each day to do a little bit of homework. He did make the comment, "There are a lot more rules in 2nd grade!" I had to laugh at that comment.
Both Snuggle Bug and Boo are part of the swim team so we're at swim team practice 3 to 4 times per week. That makes for a busy week. We look forward to the weekends!
Despite the daily hustle and bustle, I find myself thankful that my children are still young and under our roof where I know they're safe and I get to tuck them in to bed each night!
I am truly blessed!
