Abigail is in middle school this year. Kids seem to get interesting starting in middle school. They think differently. Well, I guess most folks wonder if middle school kids think at all, but I like the way they think (mostly). It’s fun to watch as things dawn on the kids as they age…I guess I can almost see the world open up for them to all of the neat things that maybe I take for granted. But beyond that, they still have that spark where just enough is different and new for them. They aren’t yet jaded…naivete remains, at least a little.
So Abigail had a task to use mathy stuff to describe a few things about herself in her math class. I think this project was sort of fun for her, but she didn’t mention a thing about it until Emily discovered it during open house (yes, we are already in school and have already done open house). I love how she loves PI stuff. I love how she drew her brother
as tall as taller than me and bald. I love how she drew our 3 cats and 5 chickens as our pets. This is no artistic masterpiece, but, like most parents, I couldn’t be happier with the result of what comes from my own kids!
