So.....school starts this week for the boys. Aaron, who was in our parish Catholic school grades K-3, then spent 4th grade year in our neighborhood public school, is going BACK to Catholic school on Wednesday, but a different school. This school is actually the grade school I attended, and my dad. It was used as a church school when my dad was a kid, then it was technically a public school when I went (although it was pretty much still Catholic), then it closed for awhile, then the parish reopened it about 10 years ago. The principal seems very nice, and very understanding of Aaron's issues. The teacher is young, but not too young, if you know what I mean. I am hopeful that things will go well.
Daniel starts his sophomore year. He has several advanced classes. I don't think he will have a problem juggling football and classes. I don't have to worry about him -he has lots of friends and works well with everyone.
It's going to be so weird with only the 2 boys here on a day-to-day basis. With both boys playing football, that's going to be a big part of daily life.
I have my first "teacher" day on Friday, and another one on Monday, then students start the following Tuesday.
It's a big week!
Have a good one,
