Cute story.

I was looking through Jack's school papers the other day and came across his math paper. He had one marked wrong that was actually correct, it was just sloppy handwriting. So I thought this would be a good opportunity to discuss taking our time with important papers, because when you don't and things are sloppy, it can be marked wrong, etc....
Jack then tells me that it was a timed practice test. He only had two minutes. And besides, they graded it themselves and he had marked it wrong..."there's no way Mrs. Lovejoy would have known that was a 6." I hope he always stays this honest!

I wish my son was that honest. That's one of those issues we're "working on" right now!!
