Hit Me!

This is the last week of school. For my sons in high school and middle school that means final exams and lots of studying. It’s an entirely different story for our youngest who is still in elementary school.

When you’re in elementary school the entire last week of school is nothing but a goof off week. Of course the teachers try to disguise the goofing off as last minute learning.

Yesterday was “game day” and the game day goofing off was disguised as learning under the guise of bringing games that teach mathematical or verbal skills. You know, games like Scrabble, Connect Four, UNO, Trouble, etc.

As J was preparing his backpack and getting ready to head out the door, I asked him if he had decided on a game to bring to school.

“Oh, yes, Mommy”, he replied. “I’m taking a deck of cards to school so I can teach all the kids how to play Black Jack.”

Well, counting to 21 is a useful life skill and after all – what happens in third grade, stays in third grade.
