Guess what the kiddos did yesterday on their first half-day of school?
Their summer math packets!
Sis started hers when she got home, running upstairs to her desk to work on it in quiet. Bud, of course, had to start his immediately lest she get ahead of him.
At some point, she decided she was done for the day and came down. But, upon hearing he was one page from being finished, she went back to doing hers!
So now they're both done and summer hasn't even started yet!! Nothing like sibling rivalry to get a job done.
(Of course, a math-teacher friend pointed out that it was a mistake to let them do the packets, that they needed them as refreshers later this summer. Blah.)
