We are about a month in and I'm happy to report that A&A&C are having a fantastic school year. So far, everyone has been dropped off before the tardy bell, though A&A said they are usually the last ones to walk into their classroom. We'll work on that.
A highlight this year for A&A is that they have the option to take their lunch. This is great when we think about looking at the menu ahead of time instead of 10 minutes before we need to walk out the door. So far it's been about 50-50 for lunch box days. I'm glad they don't opt of PB&J everyday.
Caleb thinks being an Ocean Treasure is a pretty cool thing. Every night he asks us to read with him so he can color his reading chart. So far he and his buddies seem to know when to behave and when they can play around. Hope that is a trend all year, but I won't hold my breath.
A&A jumped right into homework. Between reading and worksheets there is plenty to do every night. They usually zip through it, but it sometimes requires a real effort to sit down and get it done. Soccer starts next week throwing a kink into our "regular" schedule.
I think we're going to see some great things from A&A&C this year... I'll keep ya posted.
