September brought the start of the school year, and having Aaron and Jada at the same school has been great: one drop-off point, one back-to-school night, and one PTA group meeting. Aaron has the same teacher Jada had for 1st grade, which we're really glad about. The kids also started gymnastics at an academy in Conshy, and seem to be enjoying it and doing well. Amy slogged through her usual blur of consultations and meetings even as she revels in her new role as stage mom at the kids' gymnastics practices. Lee had an overnight business trip in Detroit amidst his usual busyness at work; with the arrival of two new hires, he is finding he is able to devote more attention to business development.
