I always have conflicting feelings about school starting. On one hand...I enjoy the summertime. The other hand...I LOVE SCHOOL!! I love LEARNING!! I don't love the fact that the kids are away all day but somedays I do enjoy the peace and quiet :) Although with Katya here not sure it is very quiet. She talks so much...she talks to me...and then today she was talking to herself. So we had open house last week, then started school and now we have been in for a full week. The kids are all enjoying their teachers. The first week is always a week of learning new rules and procedures. Next week I am sure they will be down to business. Although two of the boys already had spelling words this week. Sydney Katya and I have enjoyed being just two of us. We water and work in the school gardens every morning. Then sometimes we have projects to do at the school (helping teachers or other jobs). We come back home and get our egg out of the chicken coup. We have been have two eggs per day...one in the morning...and one in the evening. It is so much fun!!! The one in the morning is white and the one in the evening is brown. We have still to determine who is laying them. We are looking forward to a wonderful school year this year.
