one bummer, one brag

we have a 4th grader in this house that would like nothing better than to be home schooled . . . he just doesn't love school. it makes me sad, anxious and on some nights, even angry. 

henry's 3rd grade teacher totally understood because she too had a son that hated school so she came up with this . . .  one bummer and one brag a day. it's simple {or at least it should be} he has to tell me one bummer {and it can't be going to school} and one brag {i would love to hear more than one but let's not get crazy} tonight is the first night since school started that he had a brag for me! he wasn't even off his bike! it was a game they played at school and he wanted to share it with us at dinner . . .

the object of the game . . . to say the name of a veggie or fruit without showing your teeth. i know, non stop fun at this house!  kev was pretty good at it. i on the other hand, not so much!

cleo had no idea what we were doing but she wanted to be a part of the fun!

and this is what a "brag" can do for a 10 year old's spirit!
