We have officially been back to school for about a month now and one month in kindergarten is a good milestone to hit. Things are getting to be routine and everyone is adjusting to our new normal. Easton is generally pretty happy to get up every day at 7:15 and get ready for school. (I just wish I didn’t have to get him up quite that early!) He has made a few new friends including his super sweet bus driver. I’m grateful that he has really kind adults transporting him to school, and I love all the staff at his elementary school as well. Even just a month into school, I’m already seeing Easton’s reading abilities improving and his favorite subject, by far, is math. So far elementary school is treating us pretty well!
We started a co-op preschool for Kesler a few weeks ago and I’m so, so thankful that I decided to do it. I did a co-op preschool (where the moms each take turns teaching) for two years with Easton and last year about did me in. I thought there was no way I could fit it on my plate this year, but we are managing. It has been such a blessing because with as much as I work from home now, he needs something that is his to go and do. He really enjoys making new friends of his own and comes home having had the time of his life.
How has the start of school been for your family? Do you find that it affects everyone in the family too?
