Just days away from beginning the third grade, I pulled my beautiful little girl aside to ask her some thought provoking questions. ;-)
Mom: Are you looking forward to starting school? Why or why not?
Abbie: Um. No. I am not looking forward to school. I am having a good time in the summer and don't want to start.
Mom: Is there a subject that you are freaked out about?
Abbie: No. Not really.
Mom: What subject do you think you will enjoy the most this year?
Abbie: Hmmmm. History, because I get to do map worksheets like Stephen.
Mom: Do you like being home schooled? You can be honest, I'll survive.
Abbie: Yes, because I like having my Mom teaching me school.
Mom: What is the most difficult part of your school day?
Abbie: Getting up in the morning because I like to sleep in.
Mom: What about Co-Op....looking forward to that?
Abbie: Yes! Co-Op is fun because I see my friend and also I get to learn the flutophone this year.
Mom: You are only 8 right now, but what are some jobs you might be interested in when you get older?
Abbie: I'd like to teach horseback riding lessons to kids or I'd like to do something that lets me take care of animals.
