Lilypie - Fifth Birthday

Back to School

Well, the end of summer is near. Now some of you might not feel that way, especially since September has generally been seasonably comfortable. But having a teacher in the house, I am accustomed to "summer vacation" being lackadaisical, variable, with unplanned schedule changes. When August ends and Craig heads back to the classroom, life is very structured. There are no more random days off. Our "year" begins now, unlike Janurary for most others. Maybe all this practice will help me when the twins start school.

Oh and that reminds me that I probably didn't mention that Craig resigned from the elusive MPS (I was waiting for it be "official" before I posted it in cyberspace) and was hired by Indian Community School in Franklin. He had interviewed back in April/May and apparently wowed everyone enough that they offered him the position soon after (also considering the HR rep said there were almost 200 applicants just for that position). So he's changing schools and grades - he will be teaching 6th grade. In the last 10 years he's mainly taught 5th, with a couple years teaching 4th and 6th. He teaches all subjects, except unlike MPS he will actually have full time gym, art, music, language teachers and a librarian and aides. AND his partner teacher "likes" teaching Math and Literature so they have agreed to co-teach the 6th grade - Craig teaching Science and Social Studies to both 6th grade classes! This school is so unique: from who can enroll to the curriculum to the building itself. If you are at all curious, I suggest you check out their website http://www.ics-milw.org/ .


 
How much longer will they both fit in the cabinet under the bathroom sink??
