Not sure where summer went – but not at all pleased with the cooler temps, insane rainfall, and back-to-school routines for the kiddies.
B started public school as usual, but we put her in a small private school after 3 weeks – she was backburnered in public school this year due to so many behavior-problem kids in her class, and the teacher and principal were less than helpful with solutions.

M is flourishing in high school, I had been really worried, but he is becoming involved in activities and really enjoying the freedoms high school offers. Straight A’s on his interim report card!
