The first week of school is often a positive experience. Kids are on their best behavior. New curriculum ideas are ready to be explored. The weather is nice. This year was no exception, as we are off to a good start with what looks like a great bunch of kids in our class. Calvin started high school this fall and Esther gets to adjust to a new administration team. It is a tradition in our family to go out to eat at a Teriyaki restaurant the first day of school and debrief everyone's day. Markus joined us for the meal of course, but his first first day will be later this month.
