Well, that's a little embarrrassing...

School started back for us last week. Our youngest is in the 3rd grade. Friday he brought home an envelope filled with his work from last week. Parents are supposed to look over the work, then sign and return the envelope. One of his assignments was a back-to-school booklet - they had to draw a self-portrait, trace their hand, and then answer a series of fill-in-the-blank questions related to their summer and also their hopes for the school year. Here are some examples of the questions...and the answers my son gave:

I think my favorite subject will be - math

My favorite school lunch is - pizza

This year, I want to learn about - Indians

During the summer, I went to - Florida

Now, this is where it gets a little embarrassing:

During the summer, I learned about - nothing

During the summer, I read - nothing

During the summer, I made - nothing

I had to laugh. I'm sure we just made a great impression on the teacher. Seriously though, I promise we weren't total slackers this summer.

Aggh. Though imagine those responses from the kid of a teacher. Because that's what happens here.

LOL! well, as a teacher I would laughed out loud at that....that is the kind of stuff I liked about student teaching. Kids are so hilarious and they're not even trying.

I always wonder what kids are thinking when they write stuff like that...more likely, he was bored with his assignment at that point.
