The first day of school was a success. Although Megan almost missed her bus because it was early (rude!), she recovered, and had a great first day. Her schedule starts with math, then science, language arts and social studies (same teacher, two classes), orchestra, and PE. She sat with her best friend Alice at lunch and her crush has the locker right next to her. She started swim team, as well.
Gavin bounded out the door, excited, and back in again, exhilarated. His first-year teacher is fresh out of college, and while that’s a little nerve-wracking, he said she is “nice, funny, and makes learning the fun way.” And his best buddy Matthew gets to ride the bus this year. So his life is good.
