First Day of School

 The kids are all SO excited about the first day of school.  The girls have picked out just the right outfits and coordinated their accessories.  We talked Ryan into brushing his teeth.
It will be Ryan's first day of middle school.  He and Anna ended in the same math class so I had to go back yesterday and change their schedules.  Anna was ready to torture Ryan if they were in class together.  She isn't so happy that Ryan is accelerated in math and will be in the same level with her anyway.  He really loves math though.  Sydney will be the last one in elementary school.  She seems pretty glad to have the place to herself.  Her teacher is the same as last year, which she was really happy about.
For the past two days, instead of being in my classroom getting everything ready, I was on jury duty.  The judge didn't seem very sympathetic to the idea that I didn't want to miss the first day of school.  Fortunately though, I didn't get picked for the jury and got to go back to my classroom yesterday afternoon to get everything ready.  I'm still feeling a bit behind, but I'm sure I'll get it all caught up by the time the weekend rolls around.

Yikes, jury duty on top of everything else you've been through. Looks like the kids are all set for school - smart to switch him to a different class.

My husband is a teacher too, and he has jury duty the second day of school and then is on call the whole first month!

Yay for first day of school! You would think courts could call teachers in the summer, lol! For sure you don't want to miss the first day when you set the tone for the whole year! :)

Drama Teen ended up being the only Freshman in her math class. She'd hoped to remain incognito as a freshman, but two of the JV volleyball players are in the class and let everyone know she wasn't one of the new sophomores.

Whoa! Just one thing after another! A restful summer ? I think not! I hope you've all settled well into your new routines.
