Still hasn't happened yet! We had a meet-the-teacher/interview day yesterday, and Friday we find out who his teacher is. There's a gradual start thing, so he either starts Monday or Tuesday. It's kindergarten, so Izzy's super excited. There will be photos!

Day 2 here was pretty good. despite an hour of squawking on the phone to Dad last night about how weird everything is (bus! lockers! lunch at school! changing classrooms! sports in school!) today everything seems to be old hat. FC has already switched from Spanish to German when it became clear that the class was overenrolled and she was going to just learn present-tense anyway (grammar is what they`re doing, and grammar in Spanish is almost exactly the same in Portuguese so she would have been totally bored). Today was some sort of team-building field day thing for most of the day. She has actually talked to a few people but I sure wish I were a fly on the wall to see what she`s like and what it`s like for her. We`ll see how tomorrow goes.

We're a few weeks in now. Went great! Kind of a non event for both kids, which is awesome and ...odd?

Why does your kid growing up make me feel so old?

(Glad it's going well! Love his big smile!)

Isaiah's first day! (He has his backpack on too, but you can't see it well in the photo.) I walked him there, and we found a friend we know who works at the daycare (before/after school), and she introduced him to new friends as all the kindergarteners lined up for their classes. So exciting!

Finally, first day!

Shorty only had drama when her nail polish was mucked up.

Alex was pretty over it already. Seems at 16 school is not a thing anymore.

Re's 1st day of 1st grade was last week. It went great. She loves her teacher and has a bunch of friends in her class including one of her better friends from Kindergarten so we are all very happy about that.

All of August she was going on about how she hates school and doesn't want to go but has been going happily every day. We have not had any morning fights before school over clothes, school, her slowness at getting ready. Last year was brutal in the mornings. I hope we don't return to that!

I should add that she would want everyone to know that she is wearing hoop earrings. On the way to school today she asked if we could get her even bigger hoop earrings. I said no. :)

Dahlia's first day in the public school system was yesterday! She says she really liked it, so I am thrilled. It was kinda crazy to have to buy "school supplies" for a 4yr old (composition book, pocket folders, a new big-enough backpack!) but exciting and wee bit sad for me.

I love all the pictures of these happy kiddos! Livi and Reno both look so beautiful and Livi is clearly having a blast! I love Isaiah's hat - he is so debonair! And OMG the pairings of brothers! Silas and Shae look so happy and Kiddo, I can't believe how big your sons are!

So glad to hear that Dahlia's first day went well, and that you found a good location near you. I know how worried you were that you'd end up at a location far from home that wouldn't work with Sierra's nap schedule, when we spoke at Tompkin's Square.

Hurrah for all the PPK-back-to-schoolers!

Livi is like 49" and I think Reno is a tiny bit taller? Also, I'm buying size 1 shoes for Livi now, and I can fit into a 3/4.

week two has begun well. FC has decided she is changing her name, and is now asking people to call her Mia. (...)
