The End of Staycation and the Beginning of School
and Escape the Room
Game Day and Dinner at Nagoya
Our favorite Japanese restaurant. The boys tried Japanese sodas and they had a most unique and fun way of opening.
|Can you believe that this rather unassuming paperback college textbook cost $250, and that is only one course's worth of text. Sam is taking five classes and Katie is taking four.|
Monday was a big day. Sam and Katie went to their fist big day of classes. I stayed with them for a bit to help them buy their books and various settling in things. Then I left them and came back home to clean the kitchen, make a menu and shopping list for the week and make dinner with Quentin's help. I am trying to transition the younger boys into learning how to do the older kids chores. Then, at 5:00 Steven got off work and we went grocery shopping before picking up Sam and Katie. This meant that we were leaving James and Quentin home alone with Alex for the first time. Sam was done with his classes by the time we got there and we sat and talked a bit while we waited for Katie. He had a good first day. He liked his math instructor. His English teacher seems a bit ditsy, but otherwise fine. His Macroeconomics and Freshman Seminar classes are online.
Katie was finished with her art class early as the students just got their supplies list and so didn't have their art supplies to work with yet. The list is long and it doesn't seem as if she can get them through the bookstore. Katie was absolutely ecstatic about her classes. She loved her biology class and was dying to start her art homework. She liked her English professor (the same one Sam has) and completed the homework in that class before going to bed. I think she will do well.
Quentin made his First Intention.
Sam went to his American Federal Government class. We also purchased Katie's supplies for her art class....$250 worth.
