Sadie has "real" homework

Sadie came home Friday and the first thing out of her mouth was that she had "real homework".
She was so excited! She had a great week with the exception of PE. She is terrified of the new PE teacher. That is so uncharacteristic of her because she isn't very bashful and she didn't cry one day last year during preschool.

She hates getting up early and one day last week, as she was getting out of the bed, she looked at me and said "Why do I have to go to school? School is lame." I, of course, thought I had misunderstood her, but when I questioned it, she said it again. I don't think she thinks school is lame, but rather the getting up early part. She loves school once she gets there.

I love this picture for a number of reasons:
"Sadie"-I love seeing her name when she writes it. Their is just something about kids handwriting that I think is adorable.
bracelet-I love her bracelet because she has had it on since she was just a little over a week old.
fingernails-I love her fingernails because it reminds me of her and her daddy sitting in the bathroom, way past bedtime on a school night, painting her nails. He has painted them much more than I have. I guess you would say that it is "their thing". Usually that is a mother and daughter's thing, but not in my house.
pencil-she is writing with the only pencil that we could find in our house...a pencil from the golf course that they give away with score cards.
