School has started, everyone’s back to their routines, and everyone seems to be adjusting to their new grades (and new school, in Justin’s case) very well. Aaron is in eight grade and Symphonic Band, which means he has to practice every day at 7:20 A.M. Wow, seems like school starts a lot earlier than when I was a kid, but hey… it’s Symphonic Band, I guess that’s the price you pay. Ethan’s in third grade and high math. Justin’s starting 1st grade.
All the soccer schedules are out, and amazingly we have very few conflicts. I’ll miss one of Aaron’s games because I have to coach Ethan’s team (in a game). Otherwise, overlaps are minimal. I’m coaching Ethan’s U10 team, and assisting Aaron’s U14 team. Marla is my assistant coach on Ethan’s U10 team, and she’s coaching Justin’s U8 team. Games, practices, and school… that’ll be our life for the next eight weeks!
By the way, if you’re on Facebook, look for my video page (friend me up, if you haven’t already) and you’ll see some cool videos of our trip. Enjoy!
