The kids had a great first day of hybrid in-person school!! (and so did I!) They were excited to go, and I was really hoping they’d love it. They NEED this so badly. Being in a classroom, away from home without mom, and actually seeing people face to face.
Brian and I were so happy to put the kids on the bus, and I didn’t even know what to do with my time. I had a dentist appointment smack dab in the middle of the day so I couldn’t really get sucked into any projects. So Brian ran out to Dunkin for coffees and breakfast. I enjoyed my latte, then folded some laundry, went to the dentist, and then drank a mimosa while I folded and put away more laundry. Before I knew it, the kids were getting off the bus.
As they ate lunch, I grilled them about how many kids they had in their class, what their names were, how did specials go, did they go outside for snack, etc. I also asked them their best and worst parts of the day. To sum it up, they didn’t really like wearing masks, but loved everything else. Well, three said that. The other two said they didn’t like learning but loved snack (Easton and Brody of course). But overall, they said that it was all worth it and they couldn’t wait to go back tomorrow.
It makes my heart so happy that they got this time in school. I wish it could be every day, or even 4 days a week, but I’ll take it. I’m hoping getting through the first three days of the week will be easier, knowing we get to go to school the next two days, and then it’s the weekend!
Hopefully this kinda boosts them up even a little, and brings up their moods a bit. Things have been so rough with school, that they really need their cups filled again.
After lunch we met up for “recess” at the playground with a bunch of friends, and that is another piece they really need. Free time to just play and be normal kids. Plus, it is nice for the moms to be able to sit and chat!!
Tomorrow Brian and I are going out to breakfast, which I’m looking forward to. It’s nice to get things done around the house while the kids are in school, but grownups need some “me time” too!!
