Michael has a half day of school today. Last day of Fourth Grade. I gotta tell ya, Fourth Grade was hell. I am sure the teacher felt the same way, but the past few weeks have been dragging, and I am probably more happy school is out than my son is!
Last night we went out to dinner and he celebrated...
With a Root Beer!
Dinner was good, at an old place we hadn't been in years and we met my brother and SIL there. It was a bit late, so Willow was a bit fussier than normal...and Michael was "STARVING" and ate pretty much a whole plate of popcorn shrimp...and a cheeseburger. (But was full enough not to have the ice cream dessert that came with his meal).
This last week they had to write an essay, really a letter, to their (unknown) fifth grade teacher. Here is Michael's:
"Dear Fifth Grade teacher,
My name is Michael ____________. I am ten years old and was born on February 21, 1999. I cannot wait for fifth grade.
I am a very interesting and fun person. I like playing "Dungeons and Dragons" (or D&D for short). In D&D you fight monsters and find treasures in dungeons. I also like going Geocashing with Ana. Geocashing is when you look for cashes or journals hidden by other cashers in woods. I love watching Star Wars and playing video games like Spongbob Squarepants Battle for Bikini Bottom." I like doing karate and playing at Horn Pond with my family. I like doing many fun things.
I am a great student. I am a smart, wise, artful and fun student. My favorite subject is science. I like learning about electronics and the human body. I learn best by studying and practicing. I also like learning about art. I am a fun student.
I am looking forward to the fifth grade. I am very excited to have a new teacher. I'll make new friends in your class and will like learning new things. I will like exploring my new classroom. This next school year will be great!
As we deal with new normals, each of us have our new "past times". After looking for employment, I spend my days running errands...
I know things seem tough right now. Things you think should be easy are not and things that are hard are harder than you thought. Growing ...
This is why I love the school years at Willow's age. I get inundated with TONS of projects and drawings and colorings and rainbows a...
