narrated by: Quint

When I graduated from the online university, I had hoped to land a bit higher in the detective world, instead of a Gumshoe. I had kept my optimism through those times, realizing that it might be tight and perhaps, Rebecca would need to go back to full-time hours, but that eventually we’d land on top. We were never going to be on top of anything with me in construction, killing myself with the long hours and hard labor. Eventually my body would not be able to rebound, and I’d be a bent-over man with an ailing back.

Student Enrollment

narrated by: Lucy London

After years of having a large influx of students, we now are leveling out at a more reasonable rate. It’s made it possible to offer more opportunities for parents to be involved during the school day, especially now that we can host them in the cafeteria for lunch. Oliver held a Parents Day, most parents still work during the day so it doesn’t have a giant turn out, but it was still good fun for the kids.

Recently Dad had, what he thought, was a brilliant idea. He was no longer mayor, and pushing retirement age himself, and he thought that his Mom should move in with us. She’s been out in Millwood all alone for years now. This isn’t the first time that Dad has wanted to move her in, but Grandma has never heard of it before.

Principal: Lucy London, 1st-2nd grade teacher: Oliver McCarthy, Pre-K-Kindergarten teacher: Miriam Dwyer

narrated by: Lucy London

We finally got the addition added to the school, now there is plenty of room for the current students or any influx in the future. We are able to offer smaller class sizes now, and it’s been a relief for all the teachers and parents included. I’m going to plead for a larger playground with more equipment though in the future, because it’s not able to handle all the students.

It’s always exciting in the fall when the students start filing in for their classes. I’m usually over it by the time Christmas break rolls around, but I enjoy it while it lasts.
