My kids have been out of school for about 3 weeks now.
My daughter is entering 2nd grade in September, and really loves school. Without the structure of a school day, she becomes bored and uneasy very quickly. Oh, we try to keep her entertained & stimulated, but school is school, and home is home.
My son is three, and attended pre-school this past school year. He began his summer session this morning, so he is back with his friends and beloved teachers.
Emma will begin her summer structured activities next week, but it is not school. The fact that Peter has returned to his actual school setting is very upsetting to her – the jealousy monster has been released.
For a three-year-old that only speaks a half-dozen words, he has completely figured out how to bother his big sister, and really gives it to her at times. It reminds me of cats and dogs wrestling just because they’re expected to do so.
Is it September yet?
