The kids start school on Monday, August 18, 2014. The only one slightly interested is Eli. He will be in first grade with Ms. Turk, a brand-new teacher fresh out of college. She and I have already exchanged emails, and we are hoping Eli continues to exceed.
Eli wishes the summer could be longer, but he promises he will not cry this year on the first day of school. He knows a few kids in his classroom, but not many.
