Ethan has gone into year four today, which seems crazy and I swear he was year two just a minute ago? And Logan starts in year two today! They both went in really well this morning and I just hope that they settle back in and enjoy seeing all of their friends and having a bit of structure and routine back after a chilled Summer.
