T.K.

 

Megan started transitional kindergarten on Wednesday.  So far, so great!  She has an experienced teacher and has been happy to go each day.  I’m not sure if she is going to be excited to go every day next week, but we’ll get to that on Monday.  Her teacher has been telling them they come back every day. 

Unfortunately, our neighborhood school is too full to have the t.k. program so I have to drive her twice as far to get her to school.  It takes me a full half hour to drop her and to pick her up.  Next year we can walk, bike or have a quick drive.  Since this isn’t our neighborhood school I had no idea that it was the only school in our district with uniforms.  Luckily, I noticed a plaid jumper on the school’s homepage  and looked it up. 

The boys don’t start until Sept. 1.  I can’t believe Ryan is in fifth grade.  It’s time to start thinking about middle school and if we will continue with the homeschooling or go to a five day a week school.

Cont.

 

Another unintentional hiatus…

Once I get out of the habit of doing this blog I have a tough time getting back to it.  Megan starts transitional kindergarten on Wednesday!!  I can’t believe it.  The boys will start on September 1.  I will have 2 days a week without children.  I will probably walk around not knowing what to do with the time the first day! 

Our trip to Bishop was a highlight of the summer.  The kids cannot wait to go back.  Ryan was set to move there until he found out there’s no In-N-Out.

Train Stop

 

We spent a little time at the train museum.  Ryan was only 2 the last time we were here.

On the road

 

We spent a long weekend visiting some friends.  We had a fantastic time.  We drove through Yosemite.  It was a little cool!

We stopped at a picnic site for lunch.  A balmy 53 degrees!

It snowed the night before we drove through!  We hadn’t even thought of checking the road.  Tioga Pass had been closed the day before we left.  What a bummer that would have been if we would have had to go around!
