Back to School

Ready to start the new school year! 1st grade here we come...


What's with the construction hat you ask? Well they told us last year that the school would be undergoing renovations over the summer. Which would probably have worked out better if they hadn't waited until the end of July to start...


They are trying to make the best of a bad situation by turning it into a learning experience. "Watch how our school is changing." I just hope it is finished soon. There is no lunch room and half of the bathrooms are out of commission. They are putting lockers in the halls in place of the old coat rack hooks, but for now the book bags are set on the floor, in sheet rock dust, against the wall. The classrooms are also unfinished as they are installing cupboards and counter-tops. It's was barely contained chaos and Jake was more stressed out then he was when he started Kindergarten. But he did enjoy having school lunch. On the way home he told me, "Thanks for buying me lunch today Mom! I had a hot dog with the best bun ever!!" Good first day.
