We had our first day of school up here yesterday. It couldn’t have gone better. ShyGuy entered Kindergarten, Middle-Middle went to 1st grade, ResponsiBoy is now in 2nd grade and Giggles moved up to 3rd grade. We weren’t sure if Giggles was going to be able to catch up enough to go into 3rd grade. She did phenomenal over the summer. She reads at a mid-2nd grade level (she read at a low 1st grade level at the end of the school year), but she is doing great. She is now doing math at a 2nd grade level if she has her “number chart” in front of her. She needs to work on math facts. Otherwise, she’s multiplying and dividing and working on fractions. I hope that by next fall she’ll be right at grade level. She works so hard. We have zero issues with motivation. The girl begs for homework.
Here they are all ready to go on their first day.
