Back to school!

Today was Meg and Spencer’s first day of 4th and 6th grade. I can’t tell who is more excited about physically going back to school, but the house was abuzz this morning.

Meg is excited about her a Paris themed lunchbox and a more grown up style backpack. Spencer is excited about his Tommy Hilfiger socks. No room for branded shirts when all your favorite shirts have your name and sports team on them.

There are not many modifications to their school year and schedule based on COVID yet (other than wearing masks). But Spencer’s school/ teachers have silently expressed their skepticism that this will last by asking students to just bring a notebook and pencil rather than their typical back to school shopping list. Whatever happens, 2020 is sure to be an adventure!

Meg is safely home

Meg got back from her summer scout trip hiking from Memmingen to Kempten late Sunday. The drive train was delayed enough that it made sense to pick them up in Cologne. After dropping off the rest of the carpool, we had Meg and mom sushi. Meg fell asleep on the way home.
