First month of school blues

Austin is really struggling with 4th grade. I'm wondering if I made a mistake going ahead with 4th grade work when he tested in the mid-2nd grade range at the end of last school year. I am so discouraged.

Riley is doing very well, and she's really rising to the level of work I'm asking her to do. She complains a bit because there is considerably more work for her this year than last, but she's capable of doing it.

I need to do more to keep Reece engaged. Too often I look over and she's lining things up, or staring off into space. She's really enjoying the things I've been doing with her, but I can't keep her engaged all day long. Preschool starts back next week, so that will help.
