Today I took Son over to the school so he could see his new classroom. None of the teachers were there, but at least Son got to see where he needs to go when school starts next week.
The books that the kids will be using were already stacked on the desks, so I took a look. I remarked that all the stuff in the math and language arts books appear to be exactly like the stuff he did in first grade, so he should kick some butt -- academically, that is. He was more excited about the big globe on the counter.
"Look Mom! I found Iraq!"
I took in all those school supplies (tissues, hand soap) that we're required to provide. Being the germaphobe that I am, I also took in a king-sized tub of Clorox wipes for the desks. I do not want Son coming home with all those nasty colds this year.
Son is feeling a lot better about going back to school, and I think he'll have a good time.

We had open house last night. They get so excited about their desk and books. It's really quite sweet.
The girlies just started school today. My 8 year old who happens to have a journal (I just bought her one and then spied) was writing about how her "best friend" didn't talk to her and was only spending time with some other little girl. :) It was sad-she was ready to cry when she told me about it. (Yes, she confided in me.) I told her just to dropkick the little skank the next time she ignored her. ;)

So the teachers didn't have to go to open house?! Is that what you pay your taxes for?
I'm impressed that your son found Iraq. Most adults probably couldn't even locate it on a map!posted by junebee at August 22, 2006 08:01 PM
