Caitlyn went back to school last week. Her school district has decided to start earlier and end earlier with the assumption that in the secondary schools they can end their first semester before the winter break and kids can relax instead of studying for finals. And they will also have more prep before the federal and state testing which usually happens in May. Once testing is done the school year can be complete.
Personally, I think it is a good plan, let’s just hope it works.
To help us get ready for school, The Children’s Place gifted me with a $100 gift card to shop for clothes. Below are pics of everything I got. Not a bad haul shopping for 3 kids.
