Embrace the Camera

His goal for 1st grade is to "learn about books and read"

He told me he's "not really in to school" although I think he's coming around.

His favorite parts of the day are lunch, gym and recess.

And he REALLY doesn't like to do homework.

Last night, once his math sheets were finished, we moved on to the dreaded spelling list.  Practicing for his  test today.  Last week, he got 9 of 10 words correct.  Which one did he spell incorrectly?  None, he just forgot to write one down, because he was "chatting and didn't hear what his teacher said".  Come on Action..... foooocusssss and.... no talking during a test Silly!


an actually moment of homework where he doesn't look like he is being tortured.  AMAZING :)

Embrace the camera and you'll always remember those little moments with the one's you love!

OH! How I feel your pain, the homework pain. My 2nd grader will do math all.day.long. When it comes to writing sentences "correctly", he comes unglued. Glad there are no tears in this picture. You both look like you *might* be enjoying it...even if it is just a little.
