He has definitely decided that school is not fun. He told me today that he HATES SCHOOL. He even told me in all capital letters. It was quite disconcerting. I thought I had several years before I would have to deal with that. I told him that. After mulling my opinion over for awhile, (that he wasn't allowed to hate school yet) he decided that he only hated it because he had to do it EVERY SINGLE DAY. (once again, in all caps - he is quite expressive right now) I hated to break it to him that he has 12 more years of every single day.... and that doesn't count college.
He is actually doing quite well in school. He is at least on level (more likely above) for reading and math, which at his age are the most important subjects. His handwriting, on the other hand (pun intended) is horrid, but so is mine, so I guess I shouldn't complain. Thank goodness for computers, right?
Today was actually a really fun day of school. We made homemade paper, then, because the hand cranked thing was so hard to turn and we wussed out and used the blender, we decided to study electricity too. We talked about the usefulness and blessings of paper, as well as the usefulness and blessings of electricity. I'll post pics soon, and show you our creativity - but first, I am off to watch a chick flick with my good friend Carrie.
Right now, being silly takes priority over being productive.
School is done for the day - time for some play time!
