Ivie was so excited to get her first homework assignment yesterday: Have your parents read you a book, think of 2 sentences describing your favorite part(s), watch your Mommy or Daddy write your sentences, and then draw pictures to describe them. Interested to see how long this enjoyment of homework lasts...

Me: "Iv, when Daddy drives carpool, does he still take the gravel road?" Ivie: "You mean the ROCKY road?" Me: "Is that what you call it?" Ivie: "Yes, Mom. Could you please start calling it the "rocky" road, not the "gravel" road?"
