It was hard today. So conflicting. So JOYOUS to have them GONE, GONE, GONE! We’ve had far too much togetherness this summer. Lots to do, not a lot of “fun” time… which left us plenty of time to argue and not clean things up. It’s been super fun. But, then there’s the other side of the coin where I felt nervous, hoping they were making friends and remembered their schedule, etc.
Spencer meets the bus at 7:11 — that’s right, Slurpee time. Feel. the. VERY. EARLY. MORNING. joy. There, do you feel it? I know I do. He was pretty excited though. We can catch the bus at either 7:11, or a few minutes later… he is sticking with “Slurpee time”. We’ll see how long that lasts.
Reports from mister middle are that he had a great time. He has 2 new friends and he really likes his teacher, but the playground isn’t as good.
Get THIS. The PRINCIPAL called this afternoon. I was worried she was calling for a particular reason, but she wasn’t. She just wanted to check up and see how Spencer had liked his first day. I was really impressed that she did it. I know it didn’t take long, but wow.
So far, so good.
Of to Mr. Middle SCHOOL… He doesn’t have to meet the bus until 8:36… and he was up with Spencer… which gave him a lot of backpack wearing time at the house. He was pretty excited. He’s already met a few friends, including the kid across the street. Sadly, his mom took him to school this morning, so he was the new/friendless kid on the bus.
What with the new school-ness, I haven’t really had time to revel in the fact that I have a kid in middle school. That’s just crazy talk. CRA-ZY talk! But, I’m excited about the friends he’s already made. There’s a good kid in our ward who is in band with him. I’m seeing benefits for this man already.
