I got my email to work after restarting my computer late last night. It must have been something with the firefox update, or the HP update, which was kind of a big one. Maybe my cookies were crumbled, or the scones were stale, or whatever.

Since I have two bio quizzes this week (one on lab stuff today and another on material on Thurs), plus a math class to watch today, today's post is going to be a pictacular.

Josie in the tunic I finished the day before trig started.

A horse asleep with his blankie.

Josie and one of her best friends making brownies on Saturday.

Patrick not doing homework.

(One other note on the homework thing - he was required to do homework last year, in K. ??? DH and I were talking about it, and it seems to me that the kids who actually need to do it are probably the ones who will now *not* be doing it. Patrick doesn't really need to, but will still be doing it every night Just Because. We have a new principal this year, so I'm wondering if the entire school's policy on homework has changd for the younger kids.)

You made that tunic? Very nice!

On the homework thing. I make all three of my kids do "homework" for 30 minutes a day, whether the teacher has assigned it or not. If they don't bring any home, they spend the time doing workbooks or quietly reading. You're probably right that the kids who need it most won't do it.

Oh, that makes me sad. It probably is the kids that need to do it that won't.

The dog with his blankie pic is killing me!

I don't think tiny kids should have homework...7 or 8 hours a day is plenty, and after school should be for playing...especially if they don't need extra practice.

the "horse" pic=priceless! one of our dogs is a big dog and i think it's hysterical how they think or act like they are tiny lap dogs. too funny.
the tunic is super cute! i wish i could sew.
