The boys have been back to school/nursery for a week and a half now and the summer holidays feel like a distant memory already.
We are well, and truly, back into the academic routine. This week the 'easing the child/parent into the school year' view from the first couple of days have passed.
Homework has arrived home, the new Viking class project has been discussed daily, tiredness (and the lovely stroppy attitude that comes with it!) is expected and weekends are now counted down to.
I have also had a meet the teachers evening this week. With both boys having new teachers this year (Chalk has 2, Cheese has 3) it was an opportunity to put a face behind their names and find out how the boys are settling in.
This also gave me my quote of the week, courtesy of one of Chalk's teacher. I introduced myself as Chalk's mum, to which she replied "oh he is a right little old man sometimes!" ?! Mmm, think i'll take that as a compliment!
