first kindergarten, second and one not pictured
last week was our first week of the new school year. it was a long week. we all had to adjust to new bedtimes and getting up early. myself included. collette's favorite things about kindergarten are:
seeing her best friend margot everyday
seeing eliot on the playground
and that's all we can get out of her. well, today david managed to get her to say what she liked about school besides seeing margot. apparently it was reading a book. i'll take these all as good signs. she's not crying and she doesn't refuse to go. if she doesn't want to talk about it, eah. her decision. i'll pump the teacher for information at back to school night.
eliot is already loving second grade. we are looking forward to this year, because they get to "travel" around the world and study different cultures, food, languages. it's a good year.
and arlo. well that sweet arlo. she's doing just fine too. more than fine really. as a third child, she is taking full advantage of having time to herself in the best way possible. that's right, laying full length on the couch. because you third borns out there know, you never get the whole couch to yourself, you have to fight for your portion tooth and nail. when we leave in the morning, david says she lays out and luxuriates in all the space. smart girl. very smart.
