Today was the day. The day to open the backpacks. I took out the enormous stack of papers. I looked at each one. Most of them were thrown in the trash, but I found a few jewels that were keepers. There were a couple of pages within the stack that brought a smile to my face.
There was this note from a little girl......
I'm still not sure if the little girl is trying to say Carter IS her friend, or is he NOT her friend?
Only a 2nd grader would know, I suppose.
Ok, now this one gave me a big smile.......
Carter explained it to me. He was writing a song on this page. The words about "One sock on my foot. You can't do werth a flip. I got a slingshot in my hand".....yeah, those are lyrics. Catchy, huh?
I do not have high hopes of Carter making a profit from song writing.
Perhaps Math will be his saving grace. I did uncover this little gem.....
That is my kid.
But then, this one was next in the stack to take me back down a notch.....
So much for his genius status.
So, from his papers, I have gathered that.....
Carter may or may not have a little friend.
He is very unsuccessful at song writing.
His handwriting is terrible.
Carter was a math genius for exactly one day.
And he is still a jewel.
