First Week of School

Well, the first week of the 2008-2009 school year is over.
Four friends moved to different schools and different states. Seven soon-to-be-friends have stepped in to take their place in our little co-op. I have new classes and more homework. Yep. School is back.
A prankster from last year is now a junior. His younger brother, a freshman, has joined us. It will be interesting to see how this plays out (Last year, he 'stole' my mom's car - while I was on the hood).
Two friends, a mix of fun and seriousness, are back from a summer working at camp. New jokes and experiences have been added to their lives, and they have many stories to tell.
There's one boy (what word can I use for him?) who makes us laugh but has serious thoughts below it is with us again. He adds a whole other element to our school.
The sanguine girl is back again, connecting us with the rest of the world.
I'm there, too, with new event having affected my life. I have gone to LA. I got lost in the forest, doubling the time of my bike ride with two young cousins trailing behind me.
The Seven new kids are interesting. One has parents in Indonesia. Another wants homework.
Yes, another September, another School year. Times remembered and memories begun. We dive into new work with new friends as we miss those who have traveled away.


  1. Oh, Alexis! LOL. I know who each person that you are describing is. :) Ha-ha. Everyone has such a distinct personality there. It really is amazing.

    P.S. Dear, do try not to get lost in the woods. Although if you do become entangled in the forest's maze, I will come rescue you. :)

  2. It is amazing, isn't it? And if you thought they were distict last year, well... they've gotten even more colorful.
    And I'll try not to get lost in the woods again. It's an awfully long ways for you to come and rescue me.


CAREFUL! Read the buttons before you click!

Google decided to put a "sign out" button in the spot that some of us expect a "post comment" button. If you accidentally click "sign out," then you will lose everything you just wrote. I've done that several times right here, on my very own blog. Don't be like me. Pay attention to what you're clicking.

Thank you for reading. And thank you for commenting. Every comment puts a smile on my face. ^_^
