First day of school

The 2018-2019 school year started today. Hudson is in Ms Andrews’ 5th grade class and Eva is in Mr Carroll’s 2nd grade class. Havana had Ms Andrews last year and Hudson had Mr Carroll for 3rd and 4th grades.

Hudson and Bowie are not in the same class for the first time and Hudson was upset and apprehensive about that. But he came out of school today all smiles and really likes Ms Andrews.

Eva and Iris are in the same class this year and almost all her friends from last year are in her class. She’s happy too.

The biggest change is that Havana is now in middle school. 6th graders started today without the 7th and 8th graders so they could get used to the school, multiple class rooms, lockers, etc without the bustle of other kids in the halls. Very cool idea. The school had a parent orientation at the start of school so we attended a presentation by the Principal and others in the morning. Havana was very excited to be going to middle school and she loved it too.

Gay and I also picked them all up after school and took them and friends to Hello Robin for ice cream, which it seemed every other parent also did, including Robin & Clay!

And when I see you kitten as a cat
Yeah as smitten as that
I can’t get that small

And when I see you happy as a girl
That lives in a world of make believe
It makes me pull my hair all out
To think I could’ve let you leave

Eva’s Crash

Eva had a big spill at school today, running and falling on pavement, giving her abrasions on her chin and knees and really banged her front teeth and gums. Gay had to go get her and take her to the dentist for a checkup on her teeth. Fortunately, her permanent teeth appear to be okay and shouldn’t be affected. A 2nd dental checkup coming next week.

Eva’s 4th birthday

Eva turned 4 today. She’s been excited for weeks to turn 4 but this morning when I asked her about how she felt, she said she wishes she was 3 again. I expect that from a 40 year-old but not a 4 year-old — she’s so mature.

She got to pick anything she wanted for dinner. She chose salami, cheese and crackers so that’s what we ate; she has simple needs. Then she opened her presents from family: clothes, stuffed animals, a necklace, Frozen figures.

4 years ago today we all met her for the first time. 3 years ago. 2 years ago. 1 year ago
