Freeform Writing Exercise B1
There is actually a difference between 'rentrer de l'école' which is the action of 'going home from school' and 'être de retour de l'école' which is the result of that action when you are home from school.

Bonne Continuation !
"As soon as we were home from school" You propose to replace "étions de retour" with "rentrions".
My concern here is that you would lose the effect of "a state of being" by omitting être from the text.
The "state" is the return from school rather than simple "entre de nouveau" which I understand rentrer would mean.
I'm interested to see if others would agree with me or not.
