New school year starts

Tomorrow is the first day of school, and I am very optimistic.

My 8th grader was a straight A student last year, and I fully expect her to continue her streak. She isn't in Algebra, but will be next year.

My 3rd grader has the same awesome teacher she had last year, the one who helped raise her reading 2.5 grade levels.

As an experiment, we are putting both of our 5th graders in the same class. Basically, we were sick of having two kids in the same grade with different amounts of homework, different assignments, different field trips, etc... This way we figure if one forgets something, the other one can help out. Besides, they are a boy and a girl and both pretty well adjusted and independent.

The students are coming back to town this weekend, and classes start on Monday.

Ugh.

College towns would be the bomb --- if it weren't for all those college students.

Just as my job would be easy, if I didn't have so many people working for me.
