Observations on moving my family across the Atlantic

Excited to start school again

Leave a comment

Today marks the return to school of many of New York’s kids. The streets are filled with excited families. Mum and Dad both dressed for work, with their smartly dressed offspring dutifully posing for pictures, desperate just to get to school. Unbelievably, kids here have, in some cases been off THREE months! I can’t remember what it’s like to send E off to school, it’s been so long. Kids here will be in school now pretty much all the time until 21 December. There is no half term in October but there are a few days off scattered through the months, including a 3 day break around Thanksgiving in late November.

There’s a buzz in the air, a chill breeze and it’s definitely not summer any more. It’s pretty nice in the sunshine later in the morning, but at 8am it’s too cold for just a t shirt now. Shame, I quite liked that.
