Groooovy, baby!

B brought this one home from school.

Greek mythology

R’s illustration of Zeus:

Getting to know you

R’s tribute to Dad (a fill-in-the-blank sheet he was given at church):

You are all the present I need

B’s inventive spelling doesn’t take away from his sweet message.

Fill in the blank

From R’s school writing journal:

Interpretive lens

The boys made treats to share with their classmates.

Here is Mom’s sample cookie:


Here are samples of R & B’s product:


From B’s school writing journal:

You might as well know

R has broken his foam water pistol.  He is distraught.  I have tried unsuccessfully to fix the toy.

Mom — Sorry, R.  I can’t fix it.  We can take it home to see if Dad can fix it, though, if you want.

R — Okay.  I bet Dad can fix it.  He’s much better at fixing things than you are.


A matter of priorities

The boys are counting the days until we are reunited with Dad.

B — I can’t wait to see Daddy!

Mom — I can’t, either.  Dad missed out on a lot of our celebrations, huh?

R — Like our birthday, and Christmas…

Mom — … and my birthday, and Valentine’s Day the day after that.

R — Your birthday is the day before Valemtime’s Day?

Mom — Yes.

R — Wow. [Pause]  We should make Valemtime’s cupcakes and take them to our friends at school.

Units of measurement

Mom — What did your teacher say about the mug you made for her?

B — She loved it more than us!

Mom —  She loved the mug more than she loves you guys?

B — Well, she loves it the same as much in time as us.

Mom — That’s good.

B — Yeah, she loves it just as much length as us!
