Samuel started 3rd grade earlier this month. I can hardly believe he will be 9 years old before the end of this year. How did that happen?
I can tell a definite difference between 2nd & 3rd grade. He has already had one school project this year and we are working on # 2. The first was he had to do a report on a country that was participating in the Olympics. His country was Liberia. I actually learned some things myself and that was pretty cool! He did a report and drew their flag. Then they had an "olympics" of their own at school and he won a gold and a silver medal.
His second project is about insects. I gotta be honest, I am NOT as thrilled about this one. I've got little ziploc baggies lined up on my hutch full of nasty little dead critters. I walk in my kitchen and purposefully look the other way or else I get the willies! The worst was the cricket that refused to die and spent days jumping around in his little baggie. I could hardly stand it. This is definitely a project that John is going to have to help him complete.
