Back to School

School starts today. We're still on the traditional calendar here, but there's a push on to convert all the elementary schools to year-round. Yesterday we met the kids' teachers. The kids, while not 100% enthused, seem to be ready for the transition. Chloe especially is excited to be starting kindergarten. Evan will be allowed to bring his bunny in to help him transition to 2nd grade. He will have his two teachers from last year supporting him this year as well (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) as he transitions to an "inclusion" model. We've been nervous about having him removed from a self-contained classroom, but it seems like the school's administration and faculty have put a good deal of thought into planning for Evan's needs. I think he'll probably do ok.
