Friday at last; Friday already

This whole week has been so. full. In so many ways. Last night we attended an end of the year art and music event at school. In particular, I loved this collection of self portraits by Abbott's second grade class. Every year they make a self portrait; I find it interesting to see the progression from year to year.



Cal, when asked what he liked best about school this year responded, "The best thing I learned this year is math. Because you learn numbers and what problems they are."

Happy Friday!

I can only hope Cal loves math just as much as he gets older! :) Makes life so much easier.

Abbott's class did very well on their self-portraits. I am impressed. I still can only draw stick figures. Too late for me! Hurrah for their teacher.

Really, Lecia, they are growing up so fast!

I don't think my boys were ever asked to do a self portrait, I really like the idea, and the class collection is amazing. I think in two weeks time Abbott will think differently about evil emperor summer:)!

Oh how I love to hear what your children think and feel about this world of ours. Enjoy these days, and the ones to come. They are all good.

i smiled at cal's answer because lately, when lala has said she doesn't want to go to school and asked why "because i don't want to do math!" bummer, since she is quite good at it!

I love his observation of math! Hilarious. His portrait and the others are truly wonderful. What a great idea. I love to see how kids draw themselves. You have the sweetest little boys, Lecia. I'm so glad to see your blog each day. :)
