The first six weeks of the school year have come and gone. Report Cards are due to come home today. It hardly seems possible that we are in the full-swing of school, when there is so much fun going on!
For the next four weeks, these are the items on my kids' school calendars:
Boosterthon Fun Run

There is not a single "regular" week, among them. Not a single "normal" week, without something extra and fun going on.
Throw in a Casa Manana "Tom Sawyer" field trip for my second grader and the presence of "Carrot" the class pet bunny for my Kindergartener, and it's a recipe for loving school.
Is it just me, or was elementary school just not this exciting when we were small? I really liked school, but my memories are of many, many days and weeks of, simply, SCHOOL. You know, math tests and spelling lists and science experiments. Eat lunch on a green tray in the cafeteria, run around outside for 20 minutes, repeat.
For like, 250 days.
Ah well, I'm not actually complaining. I love that my kids love school. We'll just need to fit in some class work, before the week of Thanksgiving Break. (Which, yes, was only two days of break, when I was small.)
....and then find time for multiplication tables, in between Holiday Caroling and class parties....
