Have you ever assigned schoolwork
out-of-the-blue without complaining?
I am so proud of Princess and Eldest today! I got off the pc (excited about learning more blog stuff) and asked them to do schoolwork. GASP. (Our school day was technically over and now time for housework and down time.)
And they did! Without complaining!
I asked them to think of their favorite season and tell me 5 reasons why it is their favorite. They both grabbed a piece of printer paper and off they went to do their assignment.
So a few minutes later I found each one quietly in their own rooms contemplating what to write about! They both ended up picking Summer for various reasons. I hope this doesn’t mean we are in for a long school year!
1. School is out
2. Friends to hang out
3. You can spend time with your mom and dad-(melts my heart a little gotta admit!)
4. It is not cold
5. You can wear flip-flops
6. You can swim
7. Your friends can spend the night
8. You can ride the go-cart
1. You can swim
2. No School
3. Hang out with friends
4. Ride go-cart
5. Video Game parties
6. Stay up late
I am not that surprised by their answers at all. Both grandparents have pools and my parents own the go-cart on 5 acres to play. They have friends they can spend countless hours with during the summer and barely get to see since those children attend public school. They both mentioned school which is sorta funny since I am still leaning to year-round schooling. (Don’t tell them, yet!)
Don’t they look so proud of themselves? What have your children done lately without complaining? Please leave a comment about your child’s experience.
