Yep.. that First Day of School 2011 has come and gone! My boys started another school year here in Minnesota. Only this year didn't start with quite as much drama as last year.
Mostly because we moved last Fall and I now have to drive them every day because the
Big Yellow Bandit School Bus doesn't come to our house out here in the boon docks.
I can't believe how much they have grown this past year! They were excited to get back to work.. that only lasted about 3 days though.
My oldest is struggling with adjusting to full blown middle school. You know, changing classes all day long. And navagating it all alone. It's times like this that makes parenting hard because you see your kids 'suffering' and you can't do anything about it. Except tell them that it really does get easier.. and that all their friends are going through it too.
And my youngest is once again making his teacher earn every penny in her paycheck. He is a little turkey who loves to make others laugh.. aka Class Clown. Which may sound cute and funny - but it's really not. Even though it's hard not to laugh sometimes when the teacher tells us some of the things he has said. I usually kringe.. while my husband chuckles. And yes, only 8 days into the new year - we already received our first phone call from the teacher.
I'd better start planning her teacher gifts now! She deserves em!
Aaaah.. the joys of parenting.Pin It
