School has started for both kids. Avery is loving third grade. She loves that she has the same teacher as she did last year and a bunch of friends in there too. All summer she kept asking me if I thought she would have that teacher or not. I just kept reassuring her, then saying a quick prayer. I was relieved when I found out for sure she’d have the same teacher as last year too.
Sawyer is enjoying school too. He’s going to the same pre-school as he did last year, three days a week. I am at peace having made the choice for him to “red shirt” a year before going into kindergarten. He is where he needs to be this year. I do look forward to him being in kindergarten and at the same school as Avery, but it can wait.
