Joshua and Lydia went back to school on Tuesday. Joshua is in 3rd grade and came home telling me he wants to have his multiplication race car at the finish line by Christmas. His new teacher has a race care bulletin board marking the progress of the students memorization of the times tables.
Lydia is in 1st grade and is already collecting Banana Bucks. Which is currency in the land of no naps. If she's on time for school and if she finishes all her work at school, the teacher gives her a Banana Buck. When she accumulates enough Banana Bucks, she gets to buy a book she likes. Our school has such great teachers!!!
Here's a pic taken on their first day. After they left for school, we realized that silence truly is golden!!!
