Free Falling

Standard

Well, it’s been a while, huh? I’m very happy to report that the Fall hasn’t killed us yet. After the rather bumpy start, things have leveled off very nicely.

Fall2015_2Both kids are loving school, Scorch finished Fall baseball and we had two whole weeks where we only had one thing to do each week after school. It was bliss. That blissful time is now over as basketball, flag football and ice skating are all starting, but that’s OK. We’re in a groove, we’ve got this (I think) (I hope).

Scorch is learning that 4th grade homework is no joke (hello, 3 subjects a night). Thankfully he’s understanding his work, but it takes time and he’s had some tearful nights as he’s realized that not going to Homework Room during after-school care means a lot less time playing at home. Those are fun nights for everyone. Who doesn’t love having a side of tears with their dinner, right? So he’s 95% awesome, 5% snotty-tear stained mess.

And the Bean- she’s just killing it in 2nd grade and it makes my heart so happy. 1st grade was not a great school year for her, so I was honestly dreading going back to school this year. But she is blowing me away with her maturity. Last year, we were lucky if she literally said 5 words to her teacher. This year she’s raising her hand, talking in class, happily doing her work. Watching your kid thrive has to be the best feeling the world.

As for me, I’m just soaking up as much Vitamin D outside as humanly possible enjoying this gorgeous season. NY winters may suck, but man oh man….the Fall is gorgeous.
