Spull Spelin Spelling Test
As you may have read, The Baby is in kindergarten...again. In all fairness to him, it was a birthday thing. He turned 5 last year on the first day of school, while all his classmates were turning 6 during the year. Boys being slower to mature (sometimes they never do), we held him back another year. It's turned out to be a good decision.
My friends, Kindergarten now is nothing like when we were there. Gone are the days of coloring and naps. Now they actually learn Math, Reading, Writing, etc. On Friday The Baby brought home a spelling test - he got a 100%. I was so proud of him that I posted it up on the fridge right next to the one and only note he's ever gotten for good behavior (the reams of notes for bad behavior are in file 13 *sigh*).
Our conversation this morning:
Me - Dude, I am SO proud of you for that awesome spelling test!
Him - It was no big deal.
Me - Are you kidding? You got them all right!
Him - Well she gave us the answers.
Me - Huh? She gave you the answers?
Him - Yeah. She told us what words to write.
Yeah, it took me a minute, too.
