We’ve been in transition mode at our house. Our oldest started middle school this year. The change has thrown us into two school worlds, instead of our comfy one elementary school. We get up earlier, have more after school activities, and even more homework. There are different rules for just about everything, higher expectations for students and lower expectations for parental involvement.
It’s thrown me for a bit of a loop, but my girl has been killing it–making new friends, joining clubs and rising to the challenge. Now I just need to figure out how to keep up with her.
