This week will be all about school. :D
Kids are loving school, they are very happy with this year´s teachers. Tati has gone from two main teachers (one for Spanish, one for German and then all the others for gym, art, music, etc) to six. From Year 4 they have different teachers for Math, Language and Science. She seems to be handling it well. Mati´s chemistry teacher started the year with a bang. Literally. That woman knows how to get the teens attention!
This year I will be sending pack lunches for the kids. I hadn´t realized how much more work it was! I need to get organized with meals so I can make a bit more for the following day or can cook at the same time as dinner in case dinner isn´t apt for tupperware (like soups or stews).
Learning from previous years mistakes now I´m buying books the same day the teachers ask for them. Of course this method has it downfalls too, like the English book. I went to the store three times on Tuesday: one to book the book (they were coming in the afternoon), one to pick it up but forgot my ticket and one to finally pick it up. Today Mati told me they will finish last years book first ... that means the new book will stay home for a couple of MONTHS! Lol!
