Asher started full time school in September and it has been great. He transitioned surprisingly well from 2 school mornings to 3 camp mornings to 3 weeks at home then right into 5 full days of 830-245.
(Asher’s is the red/white checkered on the left)
They do all the adorable things he did last year like a music teacher once a week and creative movement instead of yoga. A Spanish teacher comes in on Friday mornings to do immersion and on Tuesdays they cook lunch for themselves. Since the campus is divided into 7-8 different buildings they walk to the school’s “big yard” every day which is 6 blocks away and sometimes I accidentally run into them and have to hide. They have a walking trip in the neighborhood once a week to places like the puppet theater, library and fire house.
This month they are talking about gratitude and having a “sharing feast” the Wednesday before thanksgiving. We are bringing broccoli because Matthew is away the whole week and its about all I can handle.
“During November, the children will be learning about friends, family, and being thankful. We will continue the theme of gratitude when we round out the end of the month learning about the helpers in our community!”
We walk there and back but Asher usually scoots. Its just over half a mile and can take between 15-45 minutes depending on just how many roses he stops to smell.
Rain or shine!
All in all its been great and I can’t believe 2 months have passed already. Its so weird not having him around during the day but he has only had about 1 full week of school so far. Soon my work will pick up and he’ll start staying until 5 every day. We’ve booked him afterschool starting in November so he’s tried it out a few times and loves it. Of course he does.
