The boys started school last week. Somehow, I am now the parent of a middle schooler! Zach appears to have made a seamless transition. Not one word of complaint about the increased homework load. He likes all of his teachers, and has already exchanged cell phone numbers with a girl. (yikes!)
Yes, he needs a hair cut.
Joey is in third grade. He has several of his friends in class (and even if he didn't, Joey doesn't waste any time making new ones!) As usual, he is already complaining about his homework!
Vinnie is in first grade, and seems to be handling the longer day just fine. He and the love of his life, Alle are not in the same class this year (no way was the principal going to let that happen!). Despite that, Vinnie is having a good time.
We have survived seven years of "first day of school" here in the Contini house!
