My baby girl is in middle school! Crikey they grow up fast! Over dinner tonight we grilled the kids and asked how their first day went, and she loved middle school! She already had a feel of where to go for her classes since we toured the school a few weeks ago, but she still had a few hiccups in her day.
At orientation, the kids were given out schedules printed on yellow paper, and because of some rearranging of classes and schedules between then and now, students were given new pink schedules. Apparently at some point Alex had forgotten to disregard the yellow copy, and she said she was in the wrong classroom for about 15 minutes before anyone realized she was in the wrong place! She said that happened quite a bit with kids throughout the day, which I'm not surprised at all about.
Other than that, she loved it! She's excited about the classes she's taking (two of them are science, she's thrilled!) and her best friends are in a few of her classes. She goes to the Boys and Girls Club after school, and she has so much fun there that she, like Lance, doesn't want me to pick her up any earlier than closing time! That's always a good sign :)
I decided to be a copycat blogger and interview the kids on their first day, and I'd love to see the changes over the upcoming years!
