I'm excited about this school year. Genoa has several Kindergarten friends in her class and Alex's teacher is SUPER organized (from the way all the sharpened colored pencils are arranged perfectly by color). Because Alex's class not only had the world's most effed up Kindergarten schedule and very large first and second grade classes (27 in his class last year), the principal went out of his way to put resources into this year's third grade. So there are only going to be 20 kids in his class AND it looks like there's a full time student teacher as well.WIN!
The teacher actually sent home a brochure about herself, which is weird, but also kinda cool. She's got a master's degree and is working on her doctorate in literacy. I may hate crossing state borders to drive my kids to school, but man it feels good to know they're in good hands.
Summer seems to have ended abruptly on me, but I'm working through a backlog of posts and hope to catch up this week on things like:
* We slaughtered two chickens! And took video! And Genoa didn't even "punch me right in the face" as promised.
* I have a bunch of recipes to post on my new blog. Steak! Fresh tomato and butter sauce on pasta! Homemade croutons! Rooster au vin!
* There's some legal bullshit that I may finally be able to write about!
* I'm DEFINITELY going to be writing about the election this year. I may be the country's last undecided voter!
Anyway, stay tuned.
