What Luke learned this year...or not.

Luke brought home this paper last week.  It made me laugh.

Don't fear the LukeR.  Isn't he friendly looking?  He's not usually bald, though.

 Not true.  He was already doing math in four-year old preschool.  He amazed his teachers when he told them what 16 x 13 was.  (Figure it out yourself.  I can't do it in my head like he can.)  I like that he demonstrated how he can do math, too.

Again, questionable truth here.  He was reading in preschool, too.

He learned how to "writi."  Apparently, he did not learn to spell this year.  Oh, well.  Notice how "Dad" got a shout-out in the school work and I did not.  Guess who's having lima beans for dinner?  (Insert evil laugh here.)
**This paper reminded me of one of my favorite blogs, What I Learned Today.  (Just in the title of Luke's paper--Billy doesn't usually post in crayon.)  Billy Coffey is very insightful, wicked in his use of subtle humor, and a very talented blogger overall.  Check him out.  You'll be glad you did.

Thanks for the shout out, Lianne! Looks like you have a little Einstein there (I still have trouble with 8 X 8, much less 16 X 13!)

My favorite part? The smiley faces. Kids who draw themselves with smiley faces are happy kids. And that says a lot about his parents.

That's just like a child, to say how much they love dad!! It's just so natural for them all to forget us moms...we're always here. I love all the pictures he drew and telling us what he learned this year. He's cute!

Too funny! So what exactly DID he learn?

If it makes you feel better, Caitlin had an art project to draw her family and they would use the drawing for a fundraiser. She drew herself, her Daddy, and sister. She said I was still in the car. So now I have a magnet to remind me to get out of the car faster.
