Do you remember those impatient moms. You know what I mean. They have their nose every where. Needing to know information before it is even available. Well I have become one of those parents. I never wanted to but perhaps it was in me all along. My oldest son started 6th grade yesterday in our local "Public School" . You see he has been in a Lutheran school for the last 3 years. We Lutheran teachers make sure our families are well informed. I have come to expect this. Not this year. I never got to even meet his teachers until after school the first day. I went to register him on their new student registration night. I figured I would at least get a school lunch menu and a schedule but nothing. So yesterday afternoon I the pushy mom that I am. I walked back to each teacher and introduced myself. I also barged into the office asking for information on the lunch program etc. Well now that I have it I found out that the principal will be explaining everything to the students today and they will be bringing home the information tonight. So now I feel a little sheepish. Perhaps I should have been a little more patient. Next year I will know what to expect and it wont be so scary....For me.
By the way my son had a fabulous day and loved every minute of it. He even signed up for band.
