First Day of School Take 2

This year we decided to send Ellie to the Junior High that is closest to our house. However, it's in a different school district than we are zoned for, so she has a slightly different schedule from the other kids.
That means I had an extra 2 weeks with Ellie. She was *the* BEST! She helped with homework, made lunches for the kids everyday, put away all the laundry, helped me with grocery shopping, babysat for neighbors. . .

And sometimes we had fun. We did some clothes shopping and got our hair done.

 One day we just hung out with her best friend all day.
By the time school finally started she was more than ready. She made me promise not to take any first day of school pictures, so the ones Mike took before school started will have to do.

So far she is killing it in Junior High with straight A's! She is a lot happier without the uniform and the excess homework.

Amen to your last sentence!!!!! We miss our friends at CTA but haven't looked back once and missed the uniforms or the crazy amount of homework!
