1st grade is right around the corner. On Friday Weston and I went back to school to meet his teacher. I’m ready to get back to the school routine but am also a bit sad to see my baby boy grow up a little bit more. I also have been worried about our decision to send him to this magnet school that is 30 minutes from home. Is this school really any better? According to the state grades, it’s not. What about neighborhood friends? He’s the only kid at his bus stop. It was wonderful on Friday to get back in the school and FEEL the reason why I want to continue there. We got to see friends we have missed this summer and I think we both left feeling reconnected. I’m excited to see what the year holds for us. No need for me to think about it for one more second. Fast forward to today on our way home from Target which takes us by our zoned school. “Mom when will I be allowed to go to that school? I really want to go there. Last year some kids left in the middle of the year to go to another school so I could do that.” Too late kiddo. Might have had a chance last week but now you’re stuck! Oh, and I made these cupcakes for the back to school PTA lunch for the teachers. I’m loving the fondant toppers and I hope they did too!
