So yesterday was our first day of school for kids here. The Shibblets eventually found their way to their new school, but not before some bus stop anxiety (where would the bus be?), our borrowed tradition of a Schultüte, finding out we had no film to take a snapshot, etc. My daughter, who was very concerned that she wouldn’t make any new friends, declared her first day of school “great!” She’s always excited about school and generally does very well. She’s in third grade this year. My son was less enthusiastic but still not unhappy. He was starting first grade and complained that it was “too easy”. We’re working on keeping him challenged.
The first day of school also screwed up my business by keeping a couple of my employees at home, so I had to get out in the field and do the work for them. Not the end of the world.
So, has school started for you yet? Any stories to share?
