How is your child settling in to the routine of the school year?

My son has really pleasantly surprised me. He is up early every morning (before me!) and ready to face the day. He has matured a lot with doing things for himself and is packing his lunch and taking on more responsibility as far as getting ready and prepared for school. He is in fifth grade so this is good considering middle school is right around the corner.

  • it amazing, but with time the flow into school becomes habit, that is until the major shifts in equilibrium occur. For us the change from a house full of adolescent boys to the last starting dual credit has produced it own adjustments. Allowing the youth to learn from falling on their own bottom. The same process we've all encounter, but it's no fun to watch!

  • the first days are always great the next few weeks he lags off then once he misses the bus and realises how much trouble he is in then he gets on board

  • zoeyis, yeah I am a bit anxious to see how my son will adapt to middle school next year. He has a really good teacher though that everyone says has her kids ready for middle school, so hopefully he will be prepared.
