Still many boxes to go

While the mountain of boxes to unpack and shelve remains dauntingly large, at least all of our stuff is now in one location.

There's a small group of techie types that gets together for breakfast on Thursdays. Anywhere from 0 to 6 people show up - you never know which. This morning we had one of those Small Town moments when one of the guys mentioned that he used to live in the house that we;ve bought. He rented the north half up until July '03, which is when the wacky landlady's antics became too much to put up with. LOTS of stories about what she was like.

He wasn't too surprised to learn that the neighbors on both sides are also new as of the last six months. No wonder people have been so happy to have us move in!

Is Marty in school yet? How's that going?

School started just before Labor Day, but they didn't start hitting the books until late last week. So far Marty's really enjoying it. Part of it has been that there's a lot less homework than at North Shore - we'll see if it stays that way.

It also looks like he's pretty much even with or slightly ahead of the class which is a nice change from before. I think a lot of it may be due to the teachers. The Language Arts and Social Studies teacher is especially inventive and playful.

In other news, my sister has moved her youngest to a new school since North Shore decided not to hire a replacement for the departing second grade teacher. They've moved 1st and 2nd together with the already unacceptable 1st grade teacher in charge. The older two are staying there for now, although the school has also put the one remaining seventh grader in with 5th and 6th.
