My oldest son started middle school (6th), totally new to him. There's lockers, combinations and he even has to walk to his classes. He really likes 6th grade and told me it was easier than he thought it would be.
My 2nd oldest and my step son are both is 4th grade. I requested them to be in the same class, so they have the same homework. I really hope I did the right thing, and they don't get in trouble to much!
