We just finished our 5th week of school. That's right, while most of the northern hemisphere was still on vacation, we began the dreaded homework grind. Let me just voice what I already knew, but had re-confirmed early on this school year: Kindergarten homework is killer for the parents - last year, I spent the better part of every school night reviewing phonograms, giving spelling tests, reading directions, grading math pages, etc. etc. This year, 1st grade homework is a breath of fresh air! Maybe that's not good in the long run, but man, what a difference for my sanity.
Our high-schooler leaves for school at 6 am, so she was not part of the elementary photo shoot. We took hers that same night, since I was too groggy to even remember to pull out the camera in the morning. FYI, her top and shoes are from Forever 21. Said she got lots of looks and compliments about those shoes. :)
