Adjusting to school 5 days a week?

  • Jackson doesn't seem to mind the 5 days either. I am like Sharyn, it is killing me!! LOL
    We have to be there at 8:00 and the tardy bell rings at 8:15. We are usually on time. He at least hasn't been tardy yet.

    Our biggest adjustment is the after school part. In preschool we would go play after school with his other friends. Now, we don't have anyone we can play with on a frequent basis. Most of the moms are exhausted too! LOL Jackson doesn't really get a lot of homework, so it isn't that. We just haven't worked all of this out yet.

    Jackson took naps up until about a month before school started and if I had my way he still would!! LOL There have been a few days that I just insisted on it. He was too grouchy. But the no naps sure has made bedtime easier!

  • It's a tough transistion. She was going four days a week for four hours. Now it's five days a week for 7.5 hours. You know how hard mornings are for us!

    Emma has stops and starts. This week has been particularly tough for her so I am putting her to bed a bit earlier, hoping more rest helps her out.
