We’ve been living without schedules and school since June. And we liked it. But a week before Christmas, we finally moved into our new home and enrolled the children in school. Today was their first day.
Ellana, 13, was excited to go. She had her schedule and school map highlighted and coordinated, a new binder, and a new top. Her main request was, “Please don’t meet me at the bus stop.”
Stephen, 9, jumped out of bed and was dressed five minutes after I woke him. “Might as well get this over with,” he sighed slouching into a fleecy sweatshirt. His biggest concern was finding friends. (He’s very discriminating.)
We met a boy about his size as we walked to school. By the time we got to the door, Stephen knew someone in his class. They went to line up together.
When we arrived at Daniel’s classroom, his eyes filled with tears. “I’m a little bit nervous he said,” looking terrified. MORE
