One of the longest and most stressful activities in our house during the week is HOMEWORK! With two kids in second grade learning how to tell time, count money, READ and do math facts, we spend a few hours a night pulling our hair out 🙂 My hat is off to all teachers, as it has to be one of the hardest and most stressful jobs EVER! I am by no means a teacher, I am not very good at getting them to understand and we all just end up frustrated and sometimes in tears. This year they have discovered chapter books, mostly The Magic Tree House ones, and they LOVE them. I think they mostly love “chapter” books because they make them feel older and smarter, but if they will read them I will keep them available. To all of the teachers out there, THANK YOU for teaching our children and putting up with them day in and day out.
My image tonight is of Madyson during her reading time, of course she had to stop and smile for the camera….she is such a little diva.
