Day three of returning to school. My children are experiencing “homework” again already. It’s like a disease that went away for a bit, but is back in full force- taking over their free time. They have begun the after school routine of emptying their bags and telling us about their day.
So far, so good.
The homework is being completed immediately following the after school snack. Our routines are a bit shaky, but have a familiarity about them. Of course, the sun is still out and seeing old friends has caused some daydreaming and drifting away from the pages.
May the calculators, textbooks and pens flow from the hard work. Let their brains absorb knowledge and wisdom. I just hope they understand what is asked of them, and they don’t need me to help.
