Sounds like a good day!

My oldest three are in school and started back on the 15th. It's weird only having one home during the day, but that will change come the end of December lol. :)

Mee!! DD starts school with a 2 hour delay tomorrow I guess they're still cleaning up from the hurricane. I'm excited! Here we come 3rd grade!!

My son, Zach, is in first grade. He started the end of August.

School was postponed b/c of the hurricane that hit here and flooded everything. Ever since then, we've been having issues with the weather and rain and flooding.

How are you finding the homework load for 1st grade so far? I have been surprised by what Ian's brought home each day. Monday through Thursday, he's been bringing home four worksheets PLUS a reader. It takes him at least an hour to get through it all. And it's not like he's bringing things home to finish that he didn't do while at school. It's crazy. I don't remember having this much homework until 3rd or 4th grade. Closer to 4th, really. At least his class gets a break on the weekend. They don't seem to be getting assignments on Fridays.

I was pretty surprised at Katie's workload from First grade. All I can say is I guess that's how they do it now & it nearly doubles each following year!!

Hello Ladies!

I figured that I would just jump in since I'm new to this board.

I'm Allison and my DD1 just started 2nd grade a few weeks ago, DS1 is in full day Kindergarten, and DD2 is in a Preschool program 3-days a week starting in October. That will be 3 kids in school with only DS2 at home during the day. I remember not so long ago with 3 at home (before #4 came along) when this day seemed so far away! I do miss it sometimes.

It is so true that the work load doubles every year after 1st. We are only in our 3rd week of school (we live in the northeast) and she is already getting an insane amount of work each night. Being that she is my only grade schooler, I have no frame of reference but I sure don't remember it being this way when I was in school!
