A New School Year Begins

First class to start:  Religious Ed.  I took this photo at a reception following the first classroom session.  K is going to get homework, which is great because it allows us to reinforce the learning (something we didn't have last year at all) and G's teacher made a point of telling us that she has "a real presence" in the classroom, volunteers readily to help, and follows through with whatever she is charged to do.  Funny, that follow through is not something I see much at home unless the activity is her idea... hmmm.  :-)  Glad, though, that other classes don't start until AFTER Labor Day; classes any sooner violate the sanctity of August as summer time and horrify my inner child (I was never eager to give up freedom and fun for school).
