We made it through another summer of fun. Back to school they all go. Learning. It's a wonderful thing, you know?



First of all. When did my kids get so big? They all look so growny.

Emme was placed in a 3rd, 4th, 5th combined gifted classroom this year. As a 5th grader her first reaction was "how lame is this?", but I think she's gotten used to the idea. It's the first year for the combined classroom so we'll see how it goes, but I must say I'm glad she'll finally be pushed to her full potential. Smarty pants.

Clee was pulled out of public school over the summer and placed in private. Yeah I'll admit it. The beginning reason for the switch was due to poor judgment on behalf of the principal over at the public school, but after looking into the private school (which is provided by the same folks who he goes to for therapy) I realized he'll benefit a lot more in a private setting. It's the pilot year for the new school and I'm pretty optimistic he'll be well taken care of.

Andrew has been counting down the days 'til the first day of school since July. He's been ready to go back. He got my teacher of choice and his buddies Dylan and Ravi are in his class again so we're both pretty pleased. Grandma bought him a Rolling Stones shirt while we were in Utah and he's been looking forward to putting it on for the first day of school. He says he looks good in Rolling Stone shirts and it's not bragging when whats being said is true. I can't say I disagree.

They do look so growny! Tell Emme she's the role model in her class. She'll be the teacher's helper. Can't wait to hear about Clee's school and yes, Andrew is the man in his Rolling Stone shirt. Have a great week!
