We went back to school Wednesday...much earlier than years past so that we finish first semester before Christmas Break. I mean Winter Break. Macauley is thrilled to be in fourth grade with Ms. Craig, his favorite teacher from second grade. He really, really wanted those black and yellow Nikes; I searched high and low to find them in his size. He's carried that giant Trapper home empty each night so far for some reason.
I had my usual anxiety about the start of classes--wondering what kind of mix of kids I would have, if we would hit it off, if I could get up in the dark at 6 a.m. after the lazy days of summer, if I really have what it takes to do all that is asked of me and then some. So far, most of my worries have been quelled. I think it's all going to be just fine.
