Here's a back-to-school question for you:
My son, a rising fourth grader, became close friends with two other boys from his class last year. The three have spent a lot of time together this summer, including attending a couple of weeks of camp together. When we got our teacher assignments, we learned that his two friends will be in the same class. My son will be in a different class. He is very upset about this and wants me to ask if he can be assigned to the other class. I suspect it's too late for that. Other than to say that we'll continue to have them over, I'm not sure what I can tell him. Any advice?
