Finley, the 1st grader, brought home the first homework yesterday.

She has to turn in homework every Friday by 8am, and if she doesn't she gets sent to study hall for the day.  Yikes!  So we decided that homework time would be Monday through Thursday at 4pm.  She has to sit down and do the homework before she gets the Wii privileges or before softball practice.  Homework at 4 is one of our resolutions.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends said just now, "Um...Did school start?"  Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!
