PAIGE: Came home slightly down-trodden and frustrated Monday. Things weren't as warm and fuzzy as elementary school and passing periods / different teachers / locker combos had her slightly stressed. With each day, however, she seemed more and more confident and I feel she is well on her way to enjoying junior high.
WILL: It's hard to read Will's response to school because it is always so clouded with an overall mourning the loss of summer. He, too, was a little overwhelmed with a switch they made in his AT class (now daily, instead of weekly), but he seemed to calm down as the week progressed, too.
COLE: I'm not sure. All I've heard about is lunch and P.E. I'm sort of kidding, but he IS most excited about his "specials" that he gets now that he is full day (music, art, P.E., library). He has a repeat teacher since his Kindergarten teacher moved up, so there was no hesitation there!
To celebrate the end of a long week, we had a traditional TGIF (that we hadn't had in a while). This was followed by a full day of work at Farm Day on Sunday. While this is a hot, hard-working day, I think the tractors, animals, and simplicity of the event was perfect therapy to prep for another week of school! Here are some pics!
