I bought the kids a workbook to help keep them busy during the summer. Olivia really likes to work in hers and it doesn't occur to her that she's learning at the same time. Last night we were waiting for Will to get home so we could go out to dinner. We sat at the table for a good 30 minutes with the kids working away.
McIver actually started the whole thing last night. He wrote all these letters all over his page and then wrote the letter A with the circle around it at the top. The he said: " I got an A, I got an A. Mom, did you know that an A is really good, but a Z is bad, bad, bad?" I haven't figured out where he picked that up yet.
All through dinner he kept trying to show the waitress his homework and tell her how very hard it is. She was appropriately impressed.
