Brady started 2nd grade this year. His teacher is Sue (just plain Sue- which is a little different. . .well A LOT! Brock hates it when a teacher uses there first name, let alone no tittle in front!). He went home sick the first day and I thought we were going to have a repeat of 'being sick' like we did last year. Thankfully that was the only 'sick' day so far. He didn't appear sick at all at the time, and the office convinced him to go back to class 2 previous times, but he did complain later that evening and didn't even eat anything for dinner, so I do think he had some sort of stomach ache. He likes school so far and has been doing reading each night, vocabulary and spelling until yesterday, now he has math for homework too. He unfortanately is in a class with only 2 other kids from previous years, so is making new friends (I hope). He still comes home with pretty much his entire lunch, and his teacher had us pack a snack for the first 2 weeks which he tells me he 'shares' each day (he names all the kids who wanted to 'try' his snack) so pretty much doesn't eat that either! I don't know how he survives!
Kindergarten started the following week and Lauren has liked going to
school so far. Although she was sick today (stomach ache) so was going to stay home,
but decided she would go when we were dropping Brady off. Well, that
didn't last and I picked her up just over an hour into school. Of course
she has been fine since we got home, no complaints whatsoever. I do
think the kids have had some sort of GI disturbance - Courtney had the worst of them all with diarrhea, vomit, no appetite for days, and now a runny nose. Lauren didn't eat much
yesterday and complained late last night and early this AM, but it was
short lived. . .maybe some sort of tummy cramping. Hopefully tomorrow
will go better for her. She did comment how Tuesday was a short day
(which it technically is short everyday, but Friday is early release and is VERY
short!). At least she doesn't feel like school is long. Last night she
informed me that she isn't the biggest in her class. . .Mrs. Bradley is
(ha ha!). Still a lot taller then kids her age, she grows like a weed!
Her and Brady were only 0.5 lbs apart when we checked last. Well, her
teacher is Mrs. Bradley, and this is her first year teaching. She said Lauren is doing well so far. I picture
her being very mellow, reserved, quiet, and a whole lot different then
Brady:) Hopefully they both grow and learn lots this year.
