W has his final tonight.
Wish him luck and pray for him. He has worked so hard and I am so proud of him! ...and yes, excited for a month free of reading, quizzes, and computer hogging fights! :)

Last night, as he was explaining his pen twirling hypothesis (did you take debate? let me know!)
I asked him if he felt confident about his test.

His response:
Yeah, I did pretty well on the midterm and I got my participation points. We went over the final in my review and so I don't need to ace it and I don't think I'll bomb it.

in my head:
What?!?!? What do you mean you don't need to ace it?!?!?

My response:
Do you know how hard it is going to be for me when one of our kids inherits your school genes and laissez faire attitude toward grades and not my type-A anal attitude?

Heaven help us!

Sorry about that. Hopefully your children will all inherit L's school genes and W's power of memorization. Then you are all set!
Love from Grandma Jan and Grandpa Bill - the trend setters for genes.

I was totally kidding, Jan. I made as much fun of myself as of Will!
