I was going through Skyler & Spencer’s school bags reading the weekly newsletters, reading their writings and admiring their artwork when I came across field trip forms. Remember when I said I was happy with our decision to put Skyler & Spencer in different classrooms because they were so competitive and being in different classes gives them the chance to make their own friends and bond with their own teacher and learn at their own pace. Well all that’s nice and stuff, but it really has it’s drawbacks sometimes.
Like when they have their holiday parties. Every party I’m running between both classrooms trying to spend equal time with both of them. Imagine how it will be next year when Caleb starts kindergarten. Thankfully they no longer have these parties in the middle school and high school so I don’t have to worry about attending a party for Keaton and Justis too.
On America Reads day I pulled Skyler out of her class and took her to Spencer’s class to read. She was a little upset because she wanted me to read to her class, but I can’t be in two places at once. She handled it well even though she was a tad disappointed.
And then there are these field trips. They had a field trip earlier in the year. Skyler’s class was on one bus and Spencer’s class was on another. I rode the bus with Skyler, but when we got to the rock quarry I escorted Spencer and one of his friends and Skyler and one of her friends. Most parents were in charge of four or five students from their child’s class. Skyler & Spencer’s teachers worked it out so I could be with both of them. That was nice.
Now they are having another field trip to the IMAX theater. Apparently there are so many first graders they are breaking them up and taking them in two days. You know what this means right? Yeah, it means Skyler’s class is going on one day and Spencer’s class is going on another day. They are the only twins in the first grade. Is it too much to ask that they have their two classes go together?
In any event, I think we have it worked out. I’ll go one day and Lee will go the other day. The IMAX is nice, but I don’t need to see the same movie twice.
