Mr A. and Noah (last year)
Yesterday was the kids first day back to school. There are some cool new changes this year at the school, some stupid changes and some cool things that are the same as last year. One of the cool new changes is our Awesome new art teacher Ms. Reasor, who just so happens to be my cousin as well. Another cool change this year is that Oakleigh is now considered to be in Jr. High and so she now gets to wear the Jr. High school uniform, which means she can wear black pants, black shirts and a skirt instead of a jumper plus the regular khaki pants, maroon and white polos. The stupid change this year is their "early" day is no longer as early. Last year they got out at 12:40 and this year they don't get out until 2, which is only 40 minutes earlier then the regular days. I would love to know who's brilliant idea that was. I loved early days it gave me time to do something fun with the kids. The cool thing that stayed the same is that Noah gets to have his favorite teacher Mr. A again (and probably next year too). Mr. A is a great teacher for Noah. Noah is a super smart kid and he knows it. He thinks everything he has to say is the most important thing.(Just a quick funny story. Once when Noah and I were driving in the car when Noah was three years old. Noah was showing of what a smarty he is and I turned to him and said "Noah you are so smart" and Noah replied "and cute too". LOL! he is so funny.) Anyway Mr. A does a great job at letting Noah show what a smarty he is but not letting him get out of hand. Mr. A is a funny guy and his sense of humor really appeals to Noah. I think this year is going to be a great year including for me. I am hoping with all my childless time (now that all my kids are in school full time) will be very productive. Here is hoping to actually keeping up on laundry.
