the fifth grade
This year marked Jake's first year in middle school. It was an adjustment for us all. The main adjustment is that he has to catch the bus about 45 minutes earlier than previous years (not to mention the fact that he's not getting home any earlier). So, we're all getting up an hour earlier. On the plus side, I get to start work on time, but I think I'd rather just get the extra sleep. The first week of school was a little overwhelming for him--new school; different schedule; lockers; being the youngest in the school, rather than the oldest, etc., but he seems to have adjusted. However, most surprising is the fact that he gets up on time each morning and we don't have to drag him out of bed. That is a nice change of pace from previous years.
