Hi Susan. I decided to put the girls in school this fall because they were done their school work quickly and then had tons of time to occupy. We did lots of activities and stuff, hauling the baby around too. Then one day I just felt like ENOUGH ALREADY. I was tired of everything being ALL my responsibility ALL the time.

I'm enjoying my job. I'm here right now "working", but really its such a nice break from the kids. I'm missing making supper, bath night and bed time, DARN :lol: . It's nice to bring home some extra spending money...I justified an order from peanut free planet because we have more income than before. Thinking of buying myself some new clothes off the net check. It's just fun money.

School has been going well. In DD(age 6)'s classroom the kids eat her allergens, but the teacher makes sure the kids wash well before and after eating. A boy touched her desk with "wagon wheel hands" and the teacher washed her desk right away. We're one month in and no hives yet. There's been a bit of food during class time but she has her safe snacks and the teacher is looking for ways to include her. They're doing a unit on the 5 senses and using some food for it. The teachers have asked me to okay everthing used, and nothing will be used that she's allergic too. So far so good.

In DD(age eight)'s class everything is going really well. It's a peanut/nut free school. My only complaint is that the stupid kid who teased her in pre-k, and said he would bring peanuts to school and make her eat the is in her class. I don't think either my daughter or that boy remember and I'd like to keep it that way.

I remember that! I think that the schools have gone through some growing pains and they are more aware than they were 5 years ago when we started.

There is still room for improvement but they are at least starting to understand the importance avoidance.
