Whew. We Made It.

We're all a little worse for wear but we have survived the first full week of school.  I don't think I've ever been so happy to see a Friday afternoon.

Liam is happy with his new teacher and his new class.  He loves being a big bus-riding kid and eating lunch at school.  Recess is the highlight of his day so far because he gets to see all his friends from last year.  But he is Worn Out.  He's wandering around with dark circles under his eyes that make it look like he ended up at the wrong end of a fist during Tae Kwon-Do.  The poor kid was exhausted last night.

Scot and I are little better than he is.  The new schedule is wearing on me and the week has been busy otherwise (see: vet emergency).  I probably should have stopped doing 90 miles an hour before I hit that wall in my way.  But hit it I did and tonight I am knackered.  The good news is that Curriculum Night at school was last night so tonight I can fall on my face.

Speaking of which, we love his teacher.  She's everything you want a first grade teacher to be.  She's clearly very excited to be in the classroom full time this year (she was a resource teacher last year).  I can't wait to see how far she can take these kids.

And as for Jamie, well, he's finally starting to get into the groove of things.  It seems like he had the hardest time with the changes earlier this week but is in the best shape tonight.  The inverse has been true for the rest of the family.  So, while we're all ready to face plant, he's got enough energy to power Tokyo.

Thank goodness it's a holiday weekend.  We can all use the extra day of rest!

  1. Yay! I'm sure you'll all settle into your new schedule before you know it. Also, I'm sure you get this all the time, BUT THAT HAIR! It kills me :)
