Almost the end of week 3 of school year. So very glad!! I think we are finally getting into a good swing of things. My youngest started full day Kindegarten this year and the first 2 weeks were a real struggle but I think she is finally getting use to it. Looking good for my son who is 12 and also recently identified as on the Austism Spectrum (Aspergers) - high functioning with social interaction issues. He seems to be doing well too. My middle child loves her class but had issues with homework with Dad last night. Overall great start to the school year. emoticon

Ah yes, the school routines. I love getting my days off as...well, my days off! I am fortunate enough to have 2 week days off per week, so they are the days I get the most done around the house when my daughter is in school! This week has been totally messed up though due to extra hours I've put in at work. I was going to be off tomorrow but now have to work for an hour or two. That's not SO BAD but I have to still finish preparing for my daughter's 8th b-day Friday and sleepover Saturday. Still not ready and haven't even wrapped gifts yet!emoticon

I don't know about you all, but I am super ready for back to school. I am a working momma (very happily I should add. I LOVE working) and it's always nicer when the kids are in school. I think I'm more anxious about the back to school stuff than my kids are. I have two of them (I call them my monkies). My son is 10 and headed to 5th grade. He had a lot of trouble with his teacher last year so I'm hoping for a better time. Only good thing that came out of that was he was tested and the school Social Worker says he lands on the Autism spectrum (VERY high functionin with low social skills so it's a struggle) butt he does ok. My daughter is 9 and going to 3rd grade. She has chronic consitipation (so that's fun) and always gets a little nervous when getting a new teacher.

If anyone has any good tips about dealing with the school schedule after a long summer, I'm all ears! We had a great summer but really..... Mom's ready for school to start...oh and Dad too since he's more of the stay at home dad type (he's an emt and only works 2 days a week)
