This is a scan of Jacob's homework for tonight. His assignment was to review his sight words, choose a word to write a sentence with and then illustrate it. I sent him to his room with his instructions & sight word list. This is his finished product, job was his sight word. I was on the phone with my mom when he came to show me his work and I cracked up. This reminds me of the story from when Stephen was little. Sue & Scott had been in Atlanta for about a year, I think, and Sue was trying to find a job. One morning Stephen woke up and Sue greeted him, with shoes on, and Stephen responded "Mom, you got a job?!" All because she had shoes on, and not her uniform of slippers.
Jackson’s essay- Click here for a better view.
This picture and essay was part of an assignment that Jackson did in school. He had to write about his favorite person. As you can see, he chose his cousin Joe. Jackson & Joe have had a magical relationship since they were about 4 & 5 years old (they're now almost 9 & 10 years old). When they're together, it's a closed society. They are in their own little world, neither can do any wrong in each other's eyes. I don't think I've ever heard them bicker or argue. Jackson is more often a guest at Joe's house, so I don't get to see them interact as much as Elizabeth does. It should be said, however, that she doesn't see them much either as they are often unattended due to their good nature and self sufficiency!!
