School, and a “kids morning routine” poll

1st Day is in the books: It was a pretty uneventful day. They seemed to have mixed feelings. Ethan seemed a bit more distraught at the idea of all the "free time with his friends" ending. They don't have to wake up until around 7:00-7:10, which is not too far off from when they often… Continue reading School, and a “kids morning routine” poll
