We started a co-op preschool for Kesler a few weeks ago and I'm so, so thankful that I decided to do it. I did a co-op preschool (where the moms each take turns teaching) for two years with Easton and last year about did me in. I thought there was no way I could fit it on my plate this year, but we are managing. It has been such a blessing because with as much as I work from home now, he needs something that is his to go and do. He really enjoys making new friends of his own and comes home having had the time of his life.
As for Knox, he is adjusting to back to school too. He is such a happy guy in general, but it has been fun to start to see his and Kesler's relationship start to grow. I will often have to assign Kesler the job of playing with Knox (including a reward of some kind), but it's been paying off. It isn't a lot yet, but they are playing better already. Knox has a special bond to Kesler that is so sweet to see. He gets the most worried when Kesler gets into trouble or is upset. I think this will be the year that they really become friends.
How has the start of school been for your family? Do you find that it affects everyone in the family too?
