School Highlights 9/21

School highlights for my boys today:

Thomas was told he should be a chef when he grows up.
During lunch, Thomas was adding pretzels to his brownie when a cub scout leader (the leader was handing out cub scout stickers) said he liked it. Thomas said, "Wait, I don't have the raisins, yet." He added raisins for a delightful dessert.

David got to move seats in his class.
He had to put his head down for five minutes at the beginning of recess. He had been laughing a lot because another kid was really funny. He said, "My teacher thought I was goofing off but the other kid was just really funny." He "got to" move seats because after his 5 minute time out, he told the teacher the other kid was bothering him.

Jonathan was asked if he would feel comfortable being in the independent, novel reading group.
And now all is right in his world.

Her 1st Shave

The other night, Elisabeth decided to shave.

She shaved a little too close and called my name in a panic. I met her in the hall. Her hands were covered in blood. Blood was all over her chin and on her neck. It was messy.

Turns out, it wasn't a big cut. It was just on the bottom part of her lip, which is a very sensitive part to cut and it bleeds a lot.

When I asked her about it, she said she was "trying to shave like Daddy."

She also said she is never going to do that again.

Side note: It's interesting to me that not one of my boys has ever tried to shave. Or, maybe they asked and I said, "No". She didn't ask, which makes me wonder about her desire to achieve (for a lack of a better way to put it).
