We’ve been back at school for a few weeks now, and we are definitely settling into a routine. Gone are the lazy summer days of sleeping in; we now get up before 6 and leave for school while it’s still dark. We have a nice view of the moon in the morning and I see the sunrise on my way home from drop-off. Although this early morning rising is not my natural inclination, I do find that it’s nice to be up early. I feel more productive when my day starts early and it’s actually cool now outside in the mornings which is so nice! I’ve been going for some walks after I drop her off and I can get to the gym earlier in the day during the school year too.
You might recall I was very nervous about sending her to a new school, but it is going really well so far. My daughter has adjusted nicely to her new school and made some friends. Drop-off and pickup are going smoother and she is always happy in the afternoon when I pick her up, despite a long day of learning. Her school is challenging her, but so far even homework has only been a minor battle. I guess we are in that sweet spot of getting into routine, but also still being excited for the new school year.
I hope the school year is going well so far for all of you!
Melisa’s daughter just started school yesterday! Head over to her post to see what back to school means for them.
