The kids were back to school today for another year. Monica is full time PSEO at Anoka Ramsey Community College taking 3 classes. She does go back to the local high school for Chamber Choir and Jazz Band. Today she was home at lunch time and said it felt weird to not have to go up to her locker or see anyone from her grade. She's slowly easing into what her life will probably be like from next year on when she starts college. Crazy!!
Maria started her Sophomore year at the local high school. She doesn't have a first hour so she doesn't have to be there until 8:30AM. We're still working out her transportation. For now, the plan is for her to drive in with Paul so she can start logging her driving hours. Her permit came in the mail today so she now has no excuses not to drive!

Working the booth at the State Fair yet again!
Molly, Lucas, and Gabe started at St. Charles Catholic school. Molly is our 8th grader, top of the heap, and leader of the pack. Lucas is a 6th grader....uniforms are new for him as they are for Gabe who is in 5th grade. Gabe said everyone was nicer than he expected! What do you expect from Catholic school?!
Jane and Niko were back to Woodcrest Spanish Immersion today. Jane is in 3rd grade and Niko is in 1st. They were nervous but excited for their first day. I braved the rain with Elizabeth to drop them off at their classrooms. That was exciting!
So it's back to a quieter house with just the dogs, Elizabeth, and Texas Grandma here with me. It was still a busy day with a Costco run, laundry, and paperwork. However, I have no classes anymore and work is holding off. Nice!
