Back to school is going ok

Good morning - it is Thursday and the weekend is just a couple days away.
Back to School FrownThe boys have started school this week with mixed reviews. Tuesday, the first day, they were very excited. Matthew (younger) was out of bed at 6:15am and joined DH & I on our morning walk. Robert (older) got out of bed excited, too; until he noticed that he couldn't find his school schedule (he is in middle school where they rotate classes/teachers). However, because we went to the school on Monday and walked through the schedule, locating the rooms and his locker, he felt confident that he know it (except he couldn't remember which order English and Math came in). Well, this was just the beginning of the "comedy of errors" - not only did he misplace his "original" schedule, but then he lost the one he wrote down by hand later in the day (note: he did make it to all his classes...the right ones at the right time). For homework, he had to hand write in cursive (a skill they do not practice or teach much due to use of computers) a introductory letter to his English teacher...which he had to do 3 times because of all the scratch/scribbles he did. Then, while drinking his milkshake at dessert time, he was working on a History paper. The paper was placed on some moisture which came from the cup and stuck to the table...which he quickly pulled and it ripped. Well, long story short...the second day of school and of homework went much better without any issues.

Hockey 1Last night was the first night of hockey practice after school, as both boys had practice...same time, different rinks. So, DH and I found ourselves texting eachother while in different rinks. Such is life. stitching pieces to show yet. Haven't had much time to put in a stitch the last couple of days - just trying to get the school/work routine in place, at least for a little while until travel hockey tournaments and other things come up. I did hear that my RR was on the move. How exciting to hear.

Thanks for visiting! I hope you are having a good week!
Take care and remember...Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often! LisaSunshine

Lisa, I check yours all the time too. I so appreciate your kind comments. I would have emailed you, but I couldn't find the address.

Glad it's going well for your boys. I'm glad to hear they're making them write in cursive. I never knew how much cursive stimulates the brain and helps in connections until I went into educational therapy. It's a good thing! (he probably doesn't think so!)

Busy times!! My daughter is just loving high school, not sure that I like it though! LOL Glad the boys are doing well at school now. Trying to get back into the habit of schedules can be a bit hectic for sure!

Hi Lisa,

Well hopefully he had all of the year's homework issues on the first day and it will be smooth sailing from here on out!
