At the end of August, Abigail started 2nd grade at her new school. She was nervous on her first day, but did really well. The transition took some time; making new friends and figuring out all of the ins and outs of procedures and policies at a new school don't happen over night. There were tears on several occasions and a couple of classroom visits by mom (me), but things have settled down and Abby is very happy with her teachers, friends, and school. She is doing VERY well!

Michael started preschool the next week (the beginning of September). He attends three mornings per week. He was super excited to start school and still has the same excitement every time he goes. It is wonderful! He has a fantastic teacher!

Michael needed a new backpack for school. I gave Coley the task of finding one for him. This is the result: a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack. Michael absolutely loves it! As you can imagine, Michael wears it all the time- not just to preschool!
