Full swing into our fall school routine with all three kids at three different school and we survived our second week! WOOHOO!

Laim- 2nd Grade 2017

My youngest son started second grade in the new neighborhood school and he is really loving the tech-focused hands-on STEM curriculum.

But mostly, he loves riding his bike to school every day and the NO HOMEWORK policy.

I’m not sure who loves the “no homework” policy more: Liam or me. Seriously. I am so grateful for no more fighting and crying over homework and allowing him to play outside after school until dinner time.

Isn’t that how life should be for a seven year old?

A lighter workload means that we can all focus on adding more play time into our days, like more family bike rides. After all, work-life-balance and leading a fit life is an important lesson to learn early on.
