Back to (The Same) School

It’s back-to-school time, and for the first time since summer 2018, the boys are in the same place! O started with a brand new teacher to Glebe and new friends-to-be, while Colin is an old pro. Here’s to a good school year!

On to Kindergarten!

The time had come to graduate from Senior Casa at Vinci as O prepares for kindergarten in the fall. O and his classmates put on quite a show, with a graduation march, reenactment of the Hungry Caterpillar, a short dance number and then graduation awards. For the effort, O and his friends were rewarded with…

Last Day of 3rd Grade!

In the first fully in-person school year since Kindergarten (2018-2019), C thrived with all his friends and teachers. From all sorts of sports during recess, humming along in math and reading and pushing himself in the hardest spelling group for the grade, he made the most of his time in third grade!

Back to School Week!

In just a matter of days, both boys headed to new classrooms for the school year. Colin was back in his school building since March of 2020, and Owen moved on up to the big kids classroom in his school. We hope the excitement continues well into the school year!

Virtual School is Out!

After a full year of virtual school, Colin made it to the other side! He had amazing academic progress, and was resilient and adaptable to thrive socially, too. We are grateful for the support and guidance of Mr. H, the friends who made shed school possible and the promise of a more normal return to…

Another Back to School Post

It’s a new chapter for O, who like his brother, is heading back to school! We’re very lucky, despite the weeks-long delays with opening, that there are only a couple other kids in his class for now – so he gets personalized attention in as safe an environment as possible.

Back to School (Sort of)

The school year started very differently compared with last year in some ways, but in other ways, it was just as exciting! As everyone began virtually, C joined up with another covid-conscious student to learn together in their amazing one-room school shed. The first-day technology issues were quickly resolved, and the adventures of second grade…

Virtual End to Virtual School

In what turned out to be a very unexpected end of the school year, Colin completed the first grade while distance “learning”. He enjoyed the weekly 1/2 hour session with his teacher and a couple classmates, but overall it was not an ideal way to be a first grader. We’re hoping for a more normal…

1st Day of 1st Grade!

And just like that, summer went by in a flash! And like a true pro, with a whole year under his belt, C returned to school with the confidence and excitement of an upper classman. We can’t wait to see what the year holds!
