Tuesday was the big day - the first day of 2nd grade. Things went off without a hitch. The bus came on time, the boy got on the bus, and off he went. So far, it seems like he is off to a good start. September is a crazy month though. As soon as we start to get into some sort of routine, he has off for Rosh Hashanah this week and then Columbus Day next week.
The only major difference I see so far is in communication between teacher and parents. D's first grade teacher sent home information in droves. This teacher has been quiet so far. But we will get to meet her this week at Back to School night and find out exactly what D has been doing in class for 6 hours each day!
Reading-wise, I seem to be devouring books this week. Maybe part of it is the gloomy weather. Maybe part of it is my desire to ignore the dishes and just read. Either way, I read The Race for Paris, Ink and Bone, and The Art of Crash Landing this week. I really am trying to force myself to write a review or two before I pick up my next book!
This week, I'm planning to read The Last Policeman and Bellweather Rhapsody as part of Readers in Peril. What are you reading for RIP?
