As school started this week, I'm happy to announce that all of the kids' fears were allieviated.
GAVIN'S FEAR: Having homework. So far, none! Yay for both of us! I DID explain to him that the younger you are, the easier and less homework is. Not sure if this helped him though. We'll see in the coming weeks.
GRACE'S FEAR: The dreaded "bad teacher". Everyone said how her teacher yelled and was mean. Grace came home on day #1 cheering that her teacher was "AWESOME!" I think it's going good so far.
ALIZA'S FEAR: Yucky middle school lunches. Not that this should even matter, since I make her lunch every day anyhow. But she's always the one worried about what's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So her first day of school reports were that the lunches are "AMAZING" and then she went on to describe them in detail. Think hot pizza and salad bars. This girls' dream.
