First Day of School

The first day of school went reasonably well for Alex and Nathan yesterday.  Per Alex's teacher, there were some bolting incidents, but no headbangs, so that's reassuring.  Nathan has the same teacher as last year, so that should go relatively smoothly.

I got some writing done.  Which made me feel happy.  

I think it's going to be a long while before I can completely relax in terms of school.  It was such a rough year last time and there was a real gap in communication.  But it's a new team and I've been proactive in getting things set up, so realistically, I've done all that I can.

Which does not sit well with my inner control freak.  That little demon wants hands on surveillance and a guarantee.  But she'll have to live without it.

Today is Icon's last day with us.  Over the last week, Alex has begun asking for "Icon to stay" instead of "No new dog" which breaks our hearts even more.  Hopefully he'll bond with the new dog as well.  Tonight is going to involve tears and chocolate.
