summertime blues

I used to think I was a fun Mom, but perhaps not so much these days. Just when my kids were expecting a break from school work, I decided to add a little lesson each day to keep their brains working. Stephen (9) has assured me that his brain is working fine and to prove it, he told me that 2 x 2 = 4. stephen schoolWell, let's aim a little higher than that! Here's a shot of him looking ever so joyful, at work on his "Summer Bridge Activities" book - which is really code for "boring school work" book.

abbie schoolAbbie (6), not wanting to be outdone by Stephen's expression of brilliance in regards to math facts, told me that she knew what iced coffee was: coffee over ice. Great Abs, but once again, let's aim a little higher! Having only just completed Kindergarten, school is lots of fun for her and sitting with Mommy to work through her math book is something she wants to do. Here's a shot of her working on place value.

    Tell them that they should be teachers so that they can have fun summers. Give them incentive. Tell them Miss Michele gets no break in the summer too!

    Life is so rough when you are little.
