Back to School

Well, summer vacation has ended. That went quick. Too quick. But I don’t care, I’m still wearing shorts for at least 2 more weeks. Try and stop me!

ETHAN: Tomorrow is the first day of school. I am going into grade 5. I’m excited and not excited. I am excited because I get to see my friends again and meet a new teacher. I am not excited because I have to do math and language and study for tests etc. The one teacher I hope I get is Mrs. Florenet.

MATTHEW: I am excited and not excited about school. Mostly not excited though because of the learning. There will be a lot of rushing around going in and out of school. The thing I am not liking the most is that after the first time you line up you need to find a different spot to line up which is the main spot. The things that I like about it is recess, the pizza lunches and that’s it. I am going into grade 3.

DAD: I don’t feel excited, more nervous than anything. Why is that? I think it’s the homework and assignments and interviews and assignment deadlines I’ll soon be responsible for. And here I thought I finished school.

    Hello everyone – sorry to be so long writing, but GrandmaC just got her internet back (my power cord adaptor died)…..Ethan, I really hope that you got Mrs. Florenet – it’s very important to have good teachers!!! Don’t ever worry about your math and studying. You’re a very smart young man just like your Dad!!!! He’ll help you. Grade 5 already – soon you’ll be in high school.

    Mr. Chip, recess and Pizza lunches sound excellent to me !! It would be a toss-up for me…..I hope you got a nice teacher as well -it helps you to like school better !! Don’t forget, the more you learn, the more you can teach your Dad who seems to be a bit nervous about school as well.

    Dear Dad – you’ll be fine (all a part of the process) – Maybe Ethan and Matthew will both have very pretty teachers to make the interviews more bearable LOL.

    Talk to all of you soon. Love, Grandma C xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
