The sun is finally out, the temps are high (for the seattle area) and the backyard sprinkler calls. Where is Jack you ask? He is doing self-inflicted summer school. Now Jack is one who likes to do things when he likes to do them. Don't ask where he got that trait. So it only seems natural in Jack-logic that come summer he is hounding me daily to print off school work and to give him "really hard...for real kids" work. So I do and now we have a new routine. After breakfast:a worksheet, after lunch: worksheet, while mom makes dinner: worksheet. All under his own power and his own free will. Let's see if we can keep this up come September when school really starts. I am guessing.......no.
