I know most parents are so happy when the kids go back to school. It means the return to normal schedules, a routine. But I always find it a bit sad. I remember how hard it was to go back to school at the end of a summer that seemed way too short. I never looked forward to it knowing I had huge amounts of homework in my future. Riley is just like me. He did not want to go back to school. This is his last year in elementary school before he starts middle school (junior high). Bella, on the other hand, was thrilled to go back to school. She has the same teacher that she had for kindergarten because the teacher got moved up a grade.
Both kids are happy with their teachers and their classes so far. Riley is not happy with his homework, but he is dealing with it as best he can. I have a feeling it is going to be a great year!!
