On Wednesday, Ryan went off to school, and Mark set about opening his box from Calvert School for 8th grade. Holy Cow, when did my baby get to be that old? Anyway...
Calvert School sends everything you need. We're doing their rigorous 8th grade course this year, with Algebra I for extra fun. And here we are, with Mark starting his Algebra on the first day of school.
Ryan's Trigonometry teacher recognized his last name, and inquired as to whether he has 3 older sisters; we were all greatly amused that the teacher remembered them, especially since he had 2 of them in different classes in the same school year, and it took him until March to realize that they were sisters, and that they were both related to the one he'd had the year before. Ryan was also amused to report that in the first day of Chemistry class, the teacher was explaining that in case of something going awry, there is an emergency shower located in the classroom. However, there is no emergency loofah; Ryan did ask.
So, we're somewhat settled back into the school rhythm. Hope you all have a great weekend!
