First Week of School!!
The Kid started Monday morning. Catholic Schools don't see any point of easing into a school year with a short week... The Kid is BEYOND happy to be back in school. He was counting down for weeks. He LOVES his school, his teacher, his friends. And he was Hand to God (pun intended) complaining about not learning enough.
For the start of 7th Grade, The Kid:
Is now sporting braces.
He plays on his school's baseball team at First Base or Pitcher.
He has asked me to meet with his teacher to discuss making his classes/assignments more difficult "because he should really start learning at a higher level if he is going to get into Yale". (Keep dreaming Kid, your parents are not exactly on a Yale kinda budget.)
Mostly, he is still sweet. Still loves movie night with his parents. Continues to read books on the regular, keeps his bedroom at a nearly condemned level of cleanliness and stacks water bottles on his nightstand like the little girl from Signs.
Tinkerbell is starting the 2nd Grade and has plans to make more friends. She also has been counting down the days, until she could get back to school. Her new teacher is adorable and sweet.
The Tink of Today:
Has firm intentions to become a Vet. But she will not care for Snakes or Tarantulas, only animals that are soft.... and turtles.
She still loves her spot on the couch. Still loves her jammies. Has a group of cute little girlfriends and wants her new bedroom to have a beach theme. (Kinda confusing for a girl who refuses to swim.)
Suuuuuuuper excited to have a lunch box. Very likely she will be the only little girl who took Guacamole for her lunch. She got the teacher she 'really really really wanted'. Coco's mother did have a short moment of tears filling the eyes (but no tears actually dropped) because my girl was SO VERY HAPPY to be at school.
The Coco of Today:
Plans to maybe be a teacher, or work in Daddy's Barbershop or maybe just help the puppies at Tink's Vet office. She definitely wants to get married but no way will she have kids because 'she saw a movie and she really thinks those babies come out of mommy's butts'.
Coco is full of energy. Loves to dance. Can not stop wearing tight pants/shorts and performing her Tights Pants On song.
She plans to make lots and lots and lots of friends, learn to read and hopefully lose a tooth.
Yes. Sistas walking hand in hand into school is the cutest thing eva.
I'm very lucky all three of my children love school. I hope this trend continues because it is so amazing to drop your babies off for the day, trusting they are safe and content.
