The boys seem to be adjusting to being home pretty well. That’s a bit surprising because we thought it would be a rough transition. They’re getting along well and for the most part, are having a low key kind of day.
We chose to keep them home from school today because after an eighteen hour drive, they needed to have time to decompress.
They actually had school, even though it’s a holiday. Frankly, I’m not a huge fan of celebrating Columbus Day anyway and I support the kids not having the day off. We just wanted them to have a day to get back into their routine and the school didn’t have a problem with that at all.
Poor Elliott wasn’t able to sleep the entire drive home, all of Sunday and didn’t fall asleep until very late last night.
Everyone is excited, if not a little nervous to return to school on Tuesday.
They will be in school regardless, because I have to get Lizze to the Cleveland Clinic before lunch and I’m not super excited about the drive. I doubt they would be either.
Here’s to hoping things continue to go on this side of well. ☺
