this week max has experienced his first official school lunch, a trip to the library, two days of pe and a music class. along with TWO recesses a day. he was upset when i told him that there was a three day weekend coming up. so far, he's really liking school. when we arrive in the morning, we go to dot 31A and drop his backpack, then head over to the playground to look for friends. argenus usually spots max and hollers for him to come play.
homework hasn't been a major pain in the butt... yet. and he seems like he's had more energy at boxing this week. (we go on mondays and wednesdays now) the nightly routine consists of a shower, lunch making (pb and honey on a thin wheat bagel is a favorite right now) and then dad reads call of the wild for awhile.

on the first day of school, madi won the trophy for the math game they play called lines. she got to be the first mate on friday. which means she was the teacher's assistant all day. (they have a ship theme in their classroom) she's reading call of the wild too (when she actually goes to sleep in her own bed). her dance studio is changing locations, so we haven't been to sign her back up yet.

mackenzie had an exciting week of changes. ;) her school starts/ends earlier this year, so we have to leave at 7:20 now and after school, she has to wait a few minutes for us to get there (last year we always had to wait for her) she had all accelerated classes except math, but then the teacher noticed she should have been in the accelerated math class too. the next day she got a schedule change. for just that one class. publications is her first period and on friday, they came up with the theme for the yearbook. she has a bottom locker this year and hangs out with a new friend, colton.

tuesday, jen, jodie and i had one of our longest blog meetings at jodie's house and kobe didn't do any damage while i was gone. i finally finished reading the help. just days before having our book swap at the grand lux cafe. spooktacular september started over on eighteen25 and it has me so excited for fall/halloween. i already have some halloween decorations up and i'm dying to burn some pumpkin scented oils.
