In the Homestretch...

For the end of school that is.

Man what a year. Jacob has been fine. He loves school. But WILLIAM?? OMG how annoying can one child be? Especially about school. I mean, I know, I know...he's a teenager and groaning and moaning comes naturally. But seriously. This year has been downright painful.

I wouldn't mind if he was doing badly or if he didn't understand what was going on or if he was being bullied or SOMETHING. But he is a big gronk of a child that nobody would be foolish enough to pick on...and even if they did he really wouldn't care so it wouldn't last long.

As for marks well he has a freakin' 95 average!! 'Nuff said.

No, William's problem is twofold. 1. He is bored. He is bored and unchallenged and he is really too mature for his own good. The usual 12-13 year old boy antics do NOT appeal to him in any way shape or form...and then of course 2. He is inherently lazy.

Combine the two and you have a recipe for a very very very annoying child who hates school for a hundred different reasons and who (if I was going to be completely honest) really could do just as well not being there....(shhhhh...don't tell William that for God's sakes).

2 more weeks....2 more weeks...lather, rinse, repeat....
