As we ended our first week in the HastyKids' respective grades and schools, I need to reflect on the roller-coaster of emotions that your Mom and I have been through, as well as your learning experiences, thus far.
First off, Molly exclaimed that she wasn't going to the school I had enrolled her in. I completely respect your opinion Molly, but transferring you during your first week of Middle School is a challenge I would not like to meet again in the future for your nor your siblings. As a reminder, you were supposed to start school last Monday and ended up starting last Thursday. On top of that, your school's website is out-dated and we were pleasantly surprised to see that your new school offers Softball and Band. Thank You Jesus!
Gabriella and Quentin have shared similar challenges in their new environment, in a phrase, bus #2. In the past 7 days it was on time bringing them home once and late about 50 minutes on average the other days. The first time Mom almost called the police when an administrator said you two ended up back at your new school. Additionally, Gabriella is used to having a class with much fewer distractions and while she is growing socially I feel like she is slightly stunted in her new urban environment. Only time will tell.
Let the stories commence as we enter our new school environments.
