They’re Getting Smarter

The kids know that if they utter the words, “I’m bored,” they will be put to work. So Master C came to me this morning and handed me a paper and said, “How’s this for Monday’s English assignment?” He then proceeded by saying, “I was bored so I found something to do.”

I just laughed to myself and gave an out loud whoop. I haven’t looked at the assignment, but I guess it must have been writing a letter to a friend. He doesn’t like to write very much, so this was GREAT! It is a ton of fun watching our eldest child embrace self discipline and motivation without parental prodding!
