The Spring vaykayshun is over. Off they go back to school today, well 2 of them do, the boys do.
Lucky Jim, who was born not 10 minutes ago, whose tiny little organs almost packed in when he was two weeks old, who JUST started school the other day surely, is now a long piece of string, jumping up and down with the excitement of being a 3rd grader.
KevLAR is less excited, an anxiety wracked jibbering wreck really will be in the 5th.
can’t wait to hear which teachers they get this year. Fingers especially X’d for Kev, he *really* needs someone with a clue.
Doris starts on Wednesday. She’ll join the legions of shiny Chu- ichi s ( JHS 1) in their oversized uniforms and their blinding white plimsols.
Sunshine will breeze into Ko-ni (HS 2), I am sure with the same aplomb she breezed in with this time last year.
Unfortunately school lunches don’t kick in for the boys until next Monday, so they’re home by noon for a week, plus Thursday they have the day off because of the Entrance Ceremony for the new first graders.
Lunches don’t start for Doris until around the end of the month ( I think, I haven’t actually seen the papers with all the info on!) and it’s packed lunches for Sunshine.
The friends arrive mid- morning.
All in all, a good day looms.
